Ride Africa 4 wishes

Hi guys,

My Name is Patrick Trahan! I going to be doing a circumnavigation of Africa for raising funds for Children's Wish of Canada.
For the past 10 years I realize my dreams. 2000-2001 Participation at the Dakar.
Documentary of my participation of the Rally des pharaons in 2005. Baja1000, Dubai Rally and last year, after 10 years I went back to Dakar and finish it!!
So after all those dream realize (many more to come), I have decided that I will make some dreams for kids who have life threatning sickness. Thoses kids don<t have 10 or 15 years like I had to realize their dreams, so they do need some help!!
I will be travelling from Morocco to Morocco by circumnavigate Africa! I am selling all thoses km for children's wish!!
I will be also trying to establish a record by doing it in 60 days (riding time only).
So if you beleive in the magic and power of dreams, buy some km!
My website is RideAfrica4Wishes: Home

Also I will need some of your input to help me along the way. My pace will be riding non stop! At a fast pace!

Thanks for your participation!!!

Thanks you the Hubb

Incredible ride, Patrick! I like so much your Honde XR, it's really wonderful!

It's an incredible ride for a nice cause. Congratulations!

In October I'll start the trip to Africa... 17.000km in 3 months! A quieter ride than yours! From Barcelona to Cape Town.

This is the Ride To Root project. I have a post in this forum:
