Commencing on the 21st April 2012, we, Peter Foulkes and Jon Brookbanks, will embark on an 8 month round-the-world motorcycle adventure in order to raise money for Cancer Research.
Heading East, the first part of the journey will take us through Europe, Russia, and Mongolia, following a similar route to that taken by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman in the Long Way Round. From Ulaanbaatar we will then head North back into Russia and ride the Western half of the infamous BAM road. From Vladivostok we plan to cross into South Korea, where we will ship the bikes to the USA and begin the second part of our journey from Alaska to Argentina. The final destination being Ushuaia, commonly regarded as the southernmost city in the world.
We will not have an extensive backup crew with medics and fixers, it’s just two guys on two dirt bikes with very little idea of what is about to happen.
