Travel

Follow the Blogger Bikers in amazing journey!

“Well we started with a plan to leave the UK and then undertake a round trip via Russia, China and India…”– Guy and Carol, November 2017.

Almost two years in the planning, local bikers, Guy and Carol, leave for India in a few days time where they will meet up with their bikes (named Poppy and Daisy) which will be flown there separately. Then, over a five month road trip beginning in April, which involves visiting several countries, they will journey back to the UK on their bikes.

Kindly, the adventurous couple have allowed us to follow their journey which they will ‘blog’ as they go along. You can catch up with some of their earlier blog posts in the right-hand sidebar on HU12 Online. And as they blog their journey, you’ll be able to click-through and read their updates and see their photographs of the journey.

You can also follow their adventures directly at their Blog:
