It is proposed to be in Istanbul around the 19th January 2016. Here, the necessary visas for some of the countries to be later entered will be obtained.
As the weather warms up in March, the ride will commence along the Black Sea coast to Georgia and beyond.
This is still only a proposal, though it is strongly hoped it comes to fruition.
