Dakar Rally Adventure

Two intrepid explorers are starting out on one of the most iconic motorbike journeys this week, raising money for Riders for Health.One

Actor Danny John-Jules (the ‘Cat’ from Red Dwarf) and teammate Graham Hoskins are travelling the 1996 Dakar Rally from Granada to Senegal route, with the help of Garmin zūmos to guide them.

Fellow adventurer and biker, Charley Boorman attempted route in 2006 but broke his wrists five days into the trip.  He’s amongst those wishing the boys well : http://youtu.be/woTaRHZUOt4
