The G8 Global Tour kicks off Sunday 15th June 2008.
Dave Dyer and Clive Jones of the Global Group (www.globalgroup.org) will then ride out of Staffordshire on the first leg of their charity challenge to complete a circuit of 8 European capital cities in 8 days on motorcycle trikes, accompanied by mechanic Rick Pye of Singles to Superbikes on a support bike.
The demanding itinerary will see them traverse London, Amsterdam, Brussels, Luxembourg, Berlin, Prague, Bern and Paris in a bid to raise £10,000 for their nominated charities: the Alzheimer's Society and NSPCC.
This ain't no sightseeing trip! They will experience tough physical symptoms in their arms, legs, neck and back as they spend long days in the saddle - and then there's the burning buns to contend with!
It will all be worth it, however, if they can deliver a cheque to their two charities for the target amount of £10k which is where, dear reader, we appeal for your help.
If you feel you can sponsor the guys in any small way please forward a donation made payable to 'Global Group G8' to Clive Jones, Managing Director, Global Group, Cold Meece Estate, Swynnerton, Stone, Staffordshire, ST15 0SP. Alternatively, just tell someone about this blog and spread the word on what we're trying to achieve. Amazing things can happen as a result of combined people power!
Keep tuning in. Expect pics, trike trivia, hellos from Clive & Dave, fundraising updates and eventually a travelogue of the trip, courtesy of our roving camera crew Ian & Nathan Halliwell, who will record the guys as they complete their G8 3000 mile adventure (and to make sure they're not cheating or anything....)
