In the last three weeks I rode 3000km heading North through India. Now I’m back in Jaipur. It’s been incredibly tough, but I’m so pleased to have kept on going through everything and finally be here safely.

The Story…An Expected Journey:
12th March 2019: Hi, I’m Peter. I’m currently on a motorcycle journey through India. I started in December from the city of Jaipur in Rajasthan. So far I’ve covered 5000km, riding to Mumbai, to Goa, then across the country from the West to the East coast; to Chennai. Now I’m in South India, in the French settlement town of Pondicherry.
I want to bring awareness to Coventry and Warwickshire Mind because they were there for me when I needed some help last year. I was lucky to find them in Rugby town and they offered a friendly and supportive environment, where I was able to make friends and work on the trouble I was facing. If you are suffering with anxiety or unhappiness, I highly recommend visiting one of their support hubs, where you will always be welcome.
What I am doing right now:
I’m riding my motorcycle through the amazing and unbelievable country of India.
I have a 100cc Hero Honda motorcycle, which I named ‘Shaktishaalee’ (in Hindi language), this means ‘powerful ‘.
I only have very basic equipment with me, no phone, no gps, only what is essential.
I mostly ride on small roads through the quiet countryside, stopping at towns and villages along the way and speaking to local people.
At night I camp out in the wild, I have a mosquito net and a mat to lay on, normally I don’t have to worry about rain and I love looking up at the stars.
Each night I build a small fire to cook my food, which is normally curried veg and noodles.
So far I travelled 5000km and I have 1000km to go.
I’m on an adventure!!!
I have been travelling like this for three months and I see the end is in sight. I am aiming to ride about 1000km further so my total will be 6000km.
Please help me raise 10p for each km of my journey!!! My target is £600. For each donation, you can work out how far you have sponsored me for. So:
£5 = 50km
£10 = 100km
£20 = 200km
£100 = 1000km
Don’t forget to giftaid if you can!
Thanks if you have read this far and please wish me luck for the end of my ride 😀
