Bison to Bristol

Cycle from Brighton to Bristol to find the best beers for the Bison Arms!
Bison to Bristol

The team that stood up to Burger King and campaigned to return a listed building in Brighton’s Lanes to its original use, a local pub, is celebrating victory: it has reached a formal agreement on the lease for The Bison Arms.

Saddle up!

The next task is to find the best beers for the bar! Join the team on this very important mission and saddle up for a bike ride from Brighton to Bristol.

You’ll spend five days cycling, four evenings sampling great food and beer and four nights camping – in Portsmouth, Lymington’s Vibrant Forest, Stonehenge and Bristol. You’ll land in Bristol just in time for Bristol Beer Week and Valley Fest!

Early Bird tickets for the ride are available for £150, which covers camping fees and four evening meals – including a special guest appearance from legendary restaurant 64 Degrees!
