North & West Africa Tour to support Motorcycle Outreach

In response to general interest the organisers of the Milward Memorial Ride have put together a motorcycle tour of North and West Africa in support of Motorcycle Outreach. The five week, 8000km motorcycle trip will include scenic diversions in Morocco, the remote region of Western Sahara and a visit to the Riders for Health facility in The Gambia.

spain-africa-routeThe exciting new five week motorcycle expedition into North & West Africa offers the previously unexplored destination of Guinea Bissau, as something different for riders seeking to experience their own Long Way Down adventure.

GlobeBusters, the UK\’s leading long distance overland motorcycle travel company, have teamed with the charity Motorcycle Outreach (MoR) to lead a team of riders on this new motorcycle adventure, leaving in November 2008. A proportion of trip price will go to MoR\’s work to provide sustainable healthcare logistics, by motorcycle, in rural areas of Indonesia

The expedition will mostly utilise the growing network of sealed roads, surprisingly, making the 5,000 mile moto trek mainly on tarmac.
That is not to say the challenge is any the less as riders will face the vibrancy and chaos of African culture, vast desert landscapes, extreme weather conditions, and challenging border practices as they head down from Morocco, through the Western Sahara, Mauritania, Mali, Senegal & The Gambia to their final goal of Guinea Bissau. This type of trip tests your attitude to travel as much as it does riding the bike.

Led by Double Guinness World Record Holder, Kevin Sanders who runs GlobeBusters, together with motorcycle adventure traveller and Motorcycle Outreach\’s, Craig Carey-Clinch, riders will enjoy the usual standard of GlobeBusters organizational excellence, and along with the ride, get to experience an Africa jungle safari and. In The Gambia, a visit to the Riders for Health facility (whose medical care model is the basis for Motorcycle Outreach) is also planned.

Riders can book this ground breaking trip by calling the GlobeBusters Enquiry line on 08452 30415 or online at the Globebusters website.
