Himalayan adventure for Helmsley Chairman

Our chairman John Reeves has just returned from a trip of a lifetime – motorbiking 2,500 miles across the Himalayas.

After receiving an unexpected cancer diagnosis five years ago, John has completed motorbike trips to India, South America, Asia and the Middle East. He now has the all clear and is planning his next challenge to Burma.

The trip to Nepal included 2,500 miles by motorbike across mountain passes and fast flowing river beds. Climbing to heights of over 18,000ft, some of the group were plagued with altitude sickness and others endured freezing temperatures and broken bridges.

John says: “I’m pleased to get home in one piece after what was a truly epic adventure. The scale and sight of the Himalayas was a really humbling experience and I can’t wait to take on Burma next!”.
