On Friday, November 18, you can join a huge convoy of Dakar vehicles riding through the nation's capital.

It's an 8.30am start at Twickenham Rugby Stadium, where all UK Dakar competitors' bikes, trucks, cars and buggies, past and present, will have gathered to form a cavalcade due to take in London's major sights.

Full-on race bikes and four-wheelers snaking their way through the streets, passing Buckingham Palace, The London Eye, Lloyds and The Houses of Parliament is going to be something mighty to behold.

You'll also be able to meet the racers, get up close to the machines, and find out how you can support the teams and their charities, from 3pm onwards, at Canada Square in Canary Wharf.
