and well done. Just read Kirsty's story, what a selfless and caring young woman she was. Good luck to all involved from me and others on here I know would wish you well (sadly I think it is holiday season, you normally would have had a bigger audince) and I hope you raise the target money that she sadly never got the chance to do x
Read this post
and wish there were more people like this in the world especially as she was so young.
I'm sure all the money will be raised and wish you all the best in your endeavours
**Mad bastards **
very commendable though ..... well done
After taking the bike to the top of Ben Nevis and back again John has now begun the Journey to Moscow and back this time he wil be allowed to use the engine which should make things a little easier however I am sure you will agree its quite a challenge check out the start of the challenge on Youtube
John started out on July 4th and has now reached Hull where he joins the Ferry to Rotterdam . He should land at 8:30 saturday morning . Be sure to say Hello as he will need all the encouragement he can get if he is going to complete the challege . Track his progress on Kirstys Kids web page
John has been on the road for:
2 days 11 hours 8 minutes 53 seconds
"Ok next stop Holland. To everyone who has helped get this event off the ground, please remember I just ride the bike its the sponsorship cash we need to help those kids and please remember the kids we help really do need our support .
Thanks P&O for providing 50% discount every bit helps".
16:30 6 July: Crossing from Netherlands into Germany nr Versen.
On the 4 July 2013 John Bryden, the chairman of the trust set out on an epic fundraising journey from the Scottish Highlands to Moscow, Russia.
So what? I hear you say. So he is doing this on Kirsty's 125 cc Honda motorcycle. He has no support crew, no backup, he has no film crew, he only has what he can carry. He sleeps by the roadside and eats what he can procure locally. Oh and he is paying for the trip himself.
So that he can't cheat we fitted him with a Spot GPS tag. This is his epic journey so far.
