Desert here we come

Jeremy’s off to Mongolia for 1,500km motorcycle adventure and fundraising trip

   

CROSSING the Gobi Desert is Jeremy Corner’s adventurous plan for his summer holiday as the keen motorcyclist takes time out from running Blue Eyed Sun and starting as the Giftware Association’s new chairman.

Jeremy has been practising hard for the 1,500km (930mile) ride across Mongolia, on the border with China, with the aim of raising £3,000 for charity.
Visitors to PG Live last week may have noticed the bandaged arm which happened after Jeremy bashed himself during training then went straight to the show in London to set up before realising it did need some medical attention.
Jeremy said: “I’m riding KTM 450 Enduro off-road motorbikes with friends on a self-funded trip, and we’re aiming to raise £3,000 for the Christina Noble Children’s Foundation which helps street children in Mongolia.
“I did hurt my arm in training, then it was quite sore and swollen after the first day of PG Live so went to the hospital and they put it in a sling as a precaution. I’m really enjoying the bikes, especially the off-road riding and can’t wait to get on the KTM 450 machines.”
As well as enjoying the spectacular scenery, with 85km (50mile) sand dunes, canyons, rock formations and the Gurvar-Saikhan mountain range, the riders will enjoy the hospitality of the local nomadic population in their round white felt yurts known as gers, among the herds of camels, goats and horses.
The trip is organised by Motorcycle Mongolia and runs from July 3 to 11 – so the Home & Gift Buyers’ Festival in Harrogate will be Jeremy’s first port of call once he lands back in Britain, as he’s exhibiting there with Blue Eyed Sun and will also be meeting people in his new role as GA chairman, taking over from Greetings Today columnist Henri Davis.
