Eeyore and John made it all the way to the Morocco / Western Sahar border, before being blocked by closed borders. They returned home via remote Moroccan villages, distributing reading glasses. After 26 days 14 hours and 23 minutes on the road and 6,171.1 miles covered on the wee bike they made it home.

The fund raising continues until enough has been raised by buy a Hexhog all terrain wheel chair.

Please donate.


This will be my last major motorcycle charity fundraising challenge.

It will be carried out on Kirsty’s wee tiny bike. Same rules; sleep rough and be resourceful. Why £18,000. I am going to ride Kirsty's 125cc motorbike to Capetown and back in the hope of raising £18,000 for a HexHog. "

The HexHog is the ultimate off-road wheelchair offering unprecedented access to extreme terrain. This unique battery powered machine means the freedom to go places wheel chair users wouldn’t have dreamed possible - at the push of a joystick!"

So here is the challenge. I ask for assistance from bikers across the globe, Blue Knights, businesses and individual to support and sponsor me.

I will take Kirsty's 125cc motorbike onto the African continent. I will negotiate as many countries as possible, perhaps all of them, inside nine weeks from the West Highlands, Scotland back to the West Highlands via Cape Town.
