Round The World – Centenary

The first biker to ride around the world left Dublin 100 years aqo on October 23, 1912.

And next Tuesday, the centenary of that day, author, adventurer and Sunday Times motorcycle columnist Geoff Hill and former racer Gary Walker will be in Dublin to announce their attempt to recreate that incredible journey.

Sponsored by Adelaide Insurance Services and supported by BMW Motorrad, they and bikers from all over Ireland will meet at Joe Duffy Motorrad on Tuesday morning to celebrate the achievement of American writer Carl Stearns Clancy.

Not only will they have the original boots which Clancy wore, but at the event will be a Henderson motorbike as used by Clancy for the trip.

The Henderson will lead a parade of bikers north from Dublin to recreate over Tuesday and Wednesday the Irish leg of Clancy’s journey, through Donegal to the Giant’s Causeway and down the Antrim Coast Road to Belfast.

Geoff and Gary will then recreate Clancy’s entire round the world journey from April to June next year.

    Would it be possible to purchase a copy of the the Henderson poster above with Clancy’s image?
