Motorbike enthusiast gears up for Himalayan adventure
A motorbike enthusiast is gearing up for an exciting adventure across the Himalayas whilst raising vital funds for a hospice.
Jon Evans, 52, will join eight fellow bikers in New Delhi in July to start the 15 day ride across 17,000km of the spectacular Himalayan mountain range. The father of two from Thurrock is hoping his efforts will raise £1,000 for Saint Francis Hospice.
"I am buzzing about it," said Jon, the hospice's estates manager. "I have been riding motorbikes since I was a kid and I have travelled to India before but I've never been to the Himalayas.
"What I'm looking forward to most is the food and the scenery."
