Henry Crew, a 22-year-old Britisher, is riding 35,000 miles on his Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled, through 35 counties over six continents with aim to raise funds for Movember Foundation and break the existing Guinness World Record. Having lost three friends to suicide, and experiencing his own mental health struggles, Henry’s goal is to raise £35,000 (£1 for every mile) for the Foundation, which raises funds globally for research and support programs in the areas of prostate cancer, testicular cancer, men’s mental health and suicide prevention. The Ducati Scrambler Desert Sled motorcycle, has been loaned to him by Ducati UK. After departing on 4th April, he has already covered France, Italy, Slovenia, Austria, Slovakia, Hungary, Poland, Ukraine, Russia, Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Iran, Pakistan, India and is in South America now. He will reach North America followed by re-entry in Europe before hitting London again at the same time next year and complete his 35000 mile journey on a motorbike.
