The Heaven Can Wait charity motorbike riders recently met up with double World Record holders Kevin and Julia Sanders of GlobeBusters at a BMW open day in Hertford.
Kevin and Julia were on hand to talk about the recent experiences travelling from Alaska to Patagonia, one of the many tours they run for bikers from around the world and they were quick to offer advice to the riders, led by Derbyshire Ambulance Technician Kevin Gent.
“We are very much aware of this ride through our involvement with Sawbridgeworth BMW” said Kevin Sanders, seen mounted on the BMW. “We would love to take part, but unfortunately we have prior commitments, but we wish the group all the best and they have our full support.”
The group of more than 30 are planning to ride from Land’s End to John O’Groats in just one day in aid of Cancer Research UK and the Nottingham City Hospital.
“It was great to see the GlobeBusters in person, we’ve spoken on the phone and they have been providing some great advice for us” said Mr Gent. “Our ride is quite a challenge and we need all the advice we can get – it doesn’t come any better than from Kevin and Julia.”
The charity motorbike ride takes place on Saturday 26th July 2008. When complete, it will set a new record with the Iron Butt Association as the largest group of riders to complete the journey in 24 hours.
“We will soon be featured in the Motorcycle Sport and Leisure magazine” added John Devlin, sponsorship co-ordinator. “Their editor and photographer will both be joining us so this is a great time to get involved if you have a business to promote – we are more than happy to talk about a range of sponsorship opportunities.”
