2013 Moscow Challenge


John has now successfully completed the Moscow Challenge and is back home.

Jan & John have received £1,500 in donations direct to them which will be added to the total.


After the success of the 2011 UK Coastal Challenge Johns off again.

This time to Moscow via Norway and Sweden. Please see the route plan below or on our facebook page. Look out for the pillion passenger - his name is Eeyore.Kirstys Kids 2013 Challenge Map

Route date? Well its was the 4th July 2013, to celebrate the formal opening of the Trust on 4th July 2011.

We are a no overheads charity, so 100% of the donations go to the kids. Nothing will be used for admin costs or trip expenses. John travels by the seat of his pants and relies on public support to lend a hand.

So if you can help by providing some bike assistance perhaps mechanical, tyres, panniers or clothing please give us a call.

We have a just giving page to help you donate.

John had a load of fellow bikers see him off at Lochailort on the 4th of July, but would like more to join him on route for part of the journey. Even if only for a few miles or a cheery wave, just as Kirsty had wanted on her planned UK trip.

He set off and traveled south to the ferry in Hull. Netherlands and Germany under his belt, John drove into Denmark on Sunday 7th July, heading North up into the Norwegian mountains to cut across into Sweden. Big fat bloke on wee 10ph bike. His lawn mower is 13hp so that gives some idea of the magnitude of this feat.

If the bike breaks down John has pledged to push it until some fellow bikers or mechanical person comes along to assist.

No cash from donations made in aid of Kirsty's Kids will ever be used for administration or expenses on this charity fundraising event. Even fuel will be purchased from personal funds or jerry can donations like last time.

If you would like to help raise cash or assist John please contact him on 01687470404 or mobile 07717183159.
