BULL BOYS: Dave and Mitch set off on their motorbike challenge.

THE Bull boys are off on another adventure to raise money for charity.

Father and son team Dave and Mitch Bull have now set off on their motorbike challenge to travel the perimeter of Spain raising money and awareness for the AECC and the Samaritans in Spain, of which Dave is the patron.

Twenty-three days of travelling will see them visit some of Spain’s biggest cities and along the way they will be meeting up with groups and local contacts who are going to help them.

The challenge for the two of them is to cover almost 400 km each day without using motorways and sticking as close as possible to the coast and the borders with France and Portugal. 

They will have just five euros each per day for food and drink because they both want to keep costs to a minimum, each night they will be looking for a friendly campsite where they can pitch their tent for free.

The challenge event follows on from last year’s successful challenge to row two kayaks down the River Segura, from Murcia to the coast at Guardamar, which raised over 3,000 euros for the charities. This year they are hoping to exceed that amount.

Setting off from Webster’s bar in Gran Alacant they were accompanied by a convoy from Costa Blanca Rawhides. They are expected back at the Samaritan’s Centre in Punta Marina on October 20.
