These guys are doing a really cool thing, crossing the the whole of Mongolia on motorbikes to raise money for some very worthwhile charities. You can check out their facebook page here, and they have a Virgin money giving page here.
Garry Campbell, Jonathan Coats and Quintin Stevens will embark upon a journey that will see them cross over 9000 miles of rugged terrain in often extreme weather conditions to raise money for four highly commendable charities: Marie Curie, Highland Hospice, Mind and the Raigmore Hospital Renal Unit.
Leaving from The STOREHOUSE – an 18th century graded restaurant and farm shop in Evanton, Scottish Highlands – the 9000-mile route will take the bikers south to Newcastle upon Tyne where they will board a ferry to Amsterdam. From then on their only transportation will be the three Yamaha XT660Z motorcycles used to carry them across Germany, Poland, Ukraine, Kazakhstan, Russia, Siberia and into Mongolia, before finally disembarking in the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar. The whole trip will take a month.
Unpredictable climate conditions, camping in unknown provinces, dangerous off-road terrain and both physical and mental exhaustion are just a few of the challenges that lie ahead – but challenges all three biker’s will relish in order to raise an estimated £50,000 for their chosen charities.
