You, a crap antique Russian motorcycle and the biggest frozen lake in the world
This is the adventure that separates the men from the boys and the ladymen from the ladyboys. Invasive cold, biblical remoteness, and a vehicle so notoriously temperamental it makes John McEnroe look like the Dalai Lama. You'll need mechanical skill, navigation skill, and ideally, an enormous muff to keep your hands warm. Oh, and massive kahunas, did we mention that already?
We have evacuated this adventure 4,000km east, to the biggest chunk of Siberian ice we could imagine; 636km by 80km, the incomparable Lake Baikal. Beginning with spiked tyres on the south-east corner of the lake; you'll skid, glide, stutter and fly across the ice to Severbaikalsk in the north.
At this point you'll de-stud your wheels and the adventure will become like the Ice Run of old.You'll wend your way south through the Irkutsk Oblast, along frozen rivers, forest lined icy dirt tracks and paved roads buried under compacted snow. The ultimate test of your biking and adventuring prowess.
Save the World by freezing
As a team on the Ice Run we ask you to raise a minimum of £1000 for charity, at least £500 of which goes to the official charity: Cool Earth. Along with the teams on the other adventures, you'll be helping to save the world one rainforest at a time. Not because we’re tree hugging sandal weavers, but because the world would be shit without them. Read more.
