First ever round-the-world tour recreated
Written by Amy   

Two adventurers from Northern Ireland, author Geoff Hill and former road racer Gary Walker, have set off from Dublin on the first leg of an 18,000 mile round-the-world expedition. The duo aim to replicate the adventure undertaken by Irish-American writer, and silent film director, Carl Stearns Clancy in 1912-1913 who was the first person ever to ride around the world on a motorcycle.

 

Geoff, 56, said: "Today we are setting off on a very momentous occasion, marking exactly one century to the day that the very first motorcyclists set off to ride around the world.” Gary, 50, continued: "I've been riding a very long time, and I've been a road racer for many years, but this is without a doubt the biggest two-wheeled adventure of my life.”

Student explorer returns for start of term
Written by Amy   

University of Nottingham student has arrived back in the UK just in time for the resumption of his course, after travelling more than 12,000 miles aboard a 110cc scooter. Ahmed Mashadani decided to drive from the University’s Malaysia campus, where he completed the second year of his Management degree, to Nottingham during the summer holidays, in order to raise money for the Red Cross.

After completing the epic journey, he said: “20,385 km, 22 countries, a lot of flat tyres and three months of sleeping in the ‘wild’ is now done. No more asking for directions, fighting traffic, being cold and having to deal with passport control. And I miss it all already.”
