At over 6000kms, the Dakar rally route winds it’s way through the sand dunes and desert trails of Argentina, Chile and Peru in South America. It’ll be tough and slow going through hot, deep sands and the electric motorbike will require hours of charging in the strong desert sun, but it’s do-able!
If the battery dies, if the solar array flakes out, if the electric motorbike decides it’s had enough then we don’t get there. No ifs, no buts, no tow-trucks! We’re confident though that this won’t happen. Each kilometre covered will be raising money in aid of worthy environmental charities and any money that can be recouped from the bike and kit will do the same.
