On July 23rd Anthony Jackson from Sinnis Motorcycles will be riding over 10,000 miles to Mongolia for charity.
Anthony Jackson, the marketing man behind the Brighton based the Sinnis Motorcycles brand, will ride a Sinnis Apache 125cc over 10,000 miles across mainland Europe, Russia and Kazakhstan (to name a few) all the way to Mongolia to raise money for Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research. Anthony’s journey will take him across twelve countries where he will experience temperatures ranging from -15 to +40, high altitudes, dirt roads, valleys, villages, as well as cities and towns, before camping in a tent at the end of each day - which is no mean feat considering his limited experience.
Anthony’s machine is a 2010 model Sinnis Apache supermoto, fitted with a heavy duty chain and rack to carry the 30kg of gear he will need for the trip he reckons will take him between six and seven weeks. When he arrives in Mongolia, Anthony plans to donate all his gear, as well as the motorcycle itself, to an outreach charity in Mongolia.
Anthony explains: "I never planned to undertake such a huge task initially but what better way to raise money for charity while at the same time pushing my boundaries and demonstrating that you don’t need a £20,000 motorcycle to get within a whisper of China."
Leukaemia and Lymphoma Research is the only UK charity solely dedicated to research into blood cancers. 28,500 people each year are diagnosed with cancer of the blood, so the money Anthony raises is going to a great cause.
Anthony writes on his 'justgiving' page that he modestly aims to raise £500 for the charity, and that people should think their donation as 'buying him a beer'! "Leukaemia and Lymphoma research do an amazing job and I just want to try and raise as much as I can and hopefully get my Apache all the way to Ulaanbaatar 10,500 miles away!"
