Chasing Horizons - charity motorcycle ride
Introducing Sam and Clare, two motorcyclists about to embark on a journey that will surely change their lives and hopefully have a big impact on the lives of others. Join them as they chase horizons on a round the world charity motorcycle ride.
Fancy a round the world charity motorcycle ride? Why not?
Relaxed outside a sun warmed café it was the summer of 2011 when Sam and Clare decided this was their aim for 2012. It would be a challenge for even the most proficient biker that is Sam, so the fact Clare was a complete novice with no previous motorcycle experience made this project even more of an adventure.
50,000 miles of travelling planned through 45 countries with just a couple of tshirts, a few underpants and a tent, Sam and Clare will be encountering one extreme to another from the snow crusted mountains of Alaska, to the blistering blazes of the Middle East.
Let the Training Commence
After months of planning and with a departure date set for August 2012, Clare eagerly commenced her training last week by taking her one hour free motorcycle ride with Get On. Ace Motorcycles trainer, Neil, was utterly stupendous and within minutes of excellent direction Clare’s nerves had fizzled away. Soon she was puttering around in loops, weaving cones and grinning like a Cheshire cat!
Afterwards, Clare bounded away, knowing that this was the first of many fantastic motorcycle days ahead!
Since the amazing Get On experience, Clare and Sam have both passed their CBT and their focus now lies on the Module 1 and 2 tests (after 8 years of riding the world, poor Sam is having to redo all training again!) If you fancy a giggle and want to know more, take a peek at the Chasing Horizons blog and pop them a Tweet or post on their Facebook wall saying hey! They’d love to hear from you.
