Ride "the Best Roads On The Planet" For A Children's Charity

Hi all,


for anyone who can spare 2 weeks in late June/early July 2011 this could prove to be the tour of a lifetime, and for a good cause.

I'm organising a group of 10 bikers to ride to the former Russian state of Ukraine to raise funds for the Friends of Chernobyl's Children.
The trip will include France, Italy (Stelvio Pass), Austria, Romania (Transfagarasan Highway), Poland, Ukraine, once we get to Kiev there will be an excursion to the site of Chernobyl and the abandoned town of Pripyat, Belarus, Germany and Holland.

There will be a visit to an orphanage in Gomel and we hope to drop in at the BMUU factory in Spandau on the way back, for the full Motorrad production line tour.

I've done this charity trip before in 2007 and it was amazing, this time around I've added a few "tweaks"

There are 5 places left, you only have to raise £1,000 sponsorhip.
More details here:

CHERNOBYL CHALLENGE 2011

For those who didn't see the TopGear on the Transfagarasan Highway go here, 6mins 17s in.

A worthy cause.

Hi,

I have read your thread with eager interest. I think the cause is more than admirable and would be most appreciative if you could give me some more facts and figures. Depending on the final ETD I am sure that I would feel a sense of honour to be able to partake.

Regards
Ikram

Sounds like an awesome trip, if only I could get the time off work! I went to Chernobyl last August for a couple of days, if you want a taste of what you'll find please check out muppix.net - photography !

OK, plug over. )
