British cyclists, Will Addison, Will Johnston, Theo Bromfield and Charlie Rose have almost completed their 8,000km through 9 countries and 10 national parks, fundraising for, and telling the stories of front-line Rangers.

Cycling under the banner of Cycling for Rangers, they arrived in Kenya, smiling and filthy, and went straight into spending time with the rangers in Ol Pejeta Conservancy, Borana Conservancy and Lewa Wildlife Conservancy.

Later they enjoyed a well deserved beer.
