Recently, I made contact with two other Enduro Africa riders, Bob and Neil, who are Warwickshire Police Officers with extensive off-road motorcycling backgrounds. One of them is a bag pipe player and will probably be good for plenty of entertainment during the trip (see below).
Bob and Neil organized and hosted a successful Pub Quiz event not long ago that helped put them over their required minimum to participate in the ride this year. They were kind enough to share with me key lessons learned from the experience.
Take a look at their blog, as it is full of interesting experiences and perspectives on EA from their side of the pond. And I'm sure they'd always welcome donations. See Bob & Neil's Enduro Africa.
