This is an epic adventure to raise money for Cancer Research. Peter and Jon contacted Bill Mayer Saddles about building a custom seats for their bikes. Rocky Mayer at BMS quickly jumped on board to sponsor the boys and provide them with custom saddles. It doesn’t get much more Epic than this and Peter and Jon have been spreading the inspiration of EpicEveryDay with shirts and stickers.

Commencing in April 2012, Peter Foulkes and Jon Brookbanks, will embark on a 9 month round-the-world motorcycle adventure in order to raise money for Cancer Research.
Heading East, the first part of the journey will take us through Europe, Russia, and Mongolia, following a similar route to that taken by Ewan McGregor and Charley Boorman in the Long Way Round. Depending on road conditions and circumstances at the time, we will then make a decision as to whether we tackle the Road of Bones through Siberia to reach Magadan, or cross into South Korea, where we will ship the bikes to Anchorage and begin the second part of our journey from Alaska to Argentina. The final destination being Ushuaia, commonly regarded as the southernmost city in the world.
We will not have an extensive backup crew with medics and fixers, it’s just two guys on two dirt bikes with very little idea of what is about to happen.
