In June 2009, Mike Burns & Ash Nixon will depart from their home in Wales and ride 2,000 miles though 10 countries in as many days.
Mike, who will be riding his Suzuki SV650S and his friend Ash, on his BMW F650GS, are undertaking this epic journey in aid of charity Riders for Health. The guys have been itching to do a big bike trip and they figured it would be great to do something for a good cause at the same time.
In order to raise money for the charity in the run up to the trip, they're hosting an online auction with help from their friends at www.sv650.org.
All items up for auction have been donated for free and all proceeds go directly to Riders for Health.
In Africa millions of people are dying from easily-preventable diseases because health workers do not have the reliable transport to reach them. By ensuring health workers have access to vehicles that never break down, Riders for Health is making sure millions of people across Africa receive regular, reliable health care, often for the first time in their lives.
