A Scooter Adventure For A Good Cause
I'm flying the flag here for a couple of lads setting themselves the target to scoot around the UK in a pretty quick time, visiting all the BMW bike dealers they can muster.
Ben and Olly are doing this thing to persuade people to donate money to Cancer Research UK. Charity giving is a pretty difficult thing to promote in these days of economic crisis, so this dash around three nations is their way of raising the profile of this particular charity.
On Friday 18th November (their final day) one short leg of their long journey is from Vines of Caterham to Vines of Guildford.
This struck a loud chord with me. It's the same journey I've been doing every day for the past 7 weeks, for the very purpose of attending the St Lukes Cancer Centre in Guildford.
But unfortunately I'll be in Ireland at that time so won't be able to ride with these lads,
otherwise I'd certainly join them.
Here's their website, The Unbearable Challenge.
You'll find links to their route maps.
Perhaps I can persuade riders out there to join these two campaigners for a section or two of their journey.
Not least the Caterham to Guildford hop that I'm very sad not to be able to ride with them.
Check out their route.
Thanks for reading.
