Scooters in the Sahara
Remember some months ago {link} I wrote about a noble venture by some mad English bikers to ride from the UK to Bansang, Gambia on Honda C90 Scooters ??

Called officially Scooters in the Sahara (but also known as TITS - Tossers in the Sahara), the epic ride was for a good charity cause (helping a local hospital by donating the C90 scooters, truck and medical equipment).

The brave folks (7 guys and 1 gal) have now published a coffee table book full of photos and stories of their adventure.

The money raised by the sales of the book goes to the hospital in Gambia. Here's a quote from the book:

Scooters in the Sahara
"However, the sight that stopped the group’s banter quicker than any other on the trip was, undoubtedly, the infants’ burial ground. This was not a cemetery or graveyard in the accepted western sense of the words. It was merely a barren piece of land, surrounded by litter on which were dotted small pieces of cardboard held in place with rocks. Each piece, we were told, marked the body of an infant. They were there to stop the Hyenas from digging up the bodies as soon as they were buried. I didn’t count them, I don’t think any of us did, but the sight moved us all very deeply. "

Price: £36
