Quote for the ride:
“Shallowford is the home that I did not have growing up. It’s the solid foundation that I believe we all need. The simplicity of life and ways of the farm are very important for the development of the man I am today. The farm gives a very important respite from the city life.
My children have all been brought going to the farm over the years. I believe it has had a big impact on them. They will all hold the memories for years to come, long after the visits have been and gone.
The farm is a unique educational place – food, environment, lifestyle, communication, family, relationships.
I am cycling to keep the experience going.” Phil Dorman
