UK and Ireland in 24 hours.
After recently reading a couple of motorcycle travel books centred around Africa and speaking to some people who have riden through there, I have noticed one common factor, and that is they all talk about the scourge of Malari in some African countrys.
I have looked in to a few charitys fighting Malaria in Africa and its obvious they have a massive battle ahead of them, they are doing well in helping prevent Malaria but as allways they are deperately short of funds.
So a friend and I have decided to help out as best we can by organising a sponsored motorcycle trip across Scotland ireland Wales and England in 24 hours.
We hope to do it on the 19th/20 August this year.
The trip will start in Edinburgh, ride across to Cairnryan, jump on the ferry to Belfast, then ride down through Dublin and on to Rosslare, and on to another ferry to take us to Pembroke, then onto Cardiff and finally finishing in London.
It should be just about possible to complete the trip within 24 hours but it will be close!
I will soon be contacting the ferry companys in the hope that they will sponsor us with reduced rate crossings etc.
We have just opened up our own donations page/blog so have a look when you get a chance and if you can make a donation that would be brilliant.
Equally important if you have any advise or suggestions to help us with the fundraising please let me know.
Heres the link to the donations page.
