London Meeting, Saturday, December 3, 2022

Speaking in December we have:

1st Doreen Tayler – Curious Christmas Customs

Boxing Day!  What’s that all about?  And why do we eat turkey and mince pies during the festive season?  If you think we have our funny ways, how about the town where running in your red underwear on New Year’s Day is a custom, or the place where you celebrate the season by pooing?

2nd Matt Bishop and Reece Gilkes, the sidecar guys – Siberia.

Matt Bishop and Reece Gilkes are ‘The Sidecar Guys’. They are called ‘The Sidecar Guys’ as they hold the very niche Guinness World Record for the longest journey by scooter and sidecar.

During a 15 month trip they travelled for 34,000 miles through 35 countries and 5 continents to successfully circumnavigate the globe by scooter and sidecar.

Matt and Reece will be talking about the Siberia portion of their around the world journey by scooter and sidecar. 

They still do all sorts of different 3 wheeled adventures and recently completed a 10 day trip from Seattle to Los Angeles on a Ural motorcycle travelling across the Idaho, Nevada and California Back Country Discovery Route.

They run a sidecar experience centre in the UK and are also the hosts of The Armchair Adventure Festival, a festival based in the UK with the sole focus of celebrating any kind of adventure travel.
