We are Insania Simia (Monkey Madness) and this is the Monkey Run Morocco. Help four morons make a difference and protect the World's rainforests.
The Monkey Run is a farcical battle between humankind, cheap engineering and humour. The most unsuitable bike in the most unsuitable terrain. For most, idiotic, for us Adventurists, absolute bliss.
What Monkey Bikes lack in size, they make up for in personality. Follow us this March as we join 46 other likeminded morons for a ridiculous two-wheeled adventure through the Sahara and over the Atlas Mountains in our humble attempt at saving the World. A bit.
“We must save every rainforest in the world so future generations have somewhere to get stuck…and can also breathe. Not because we’re tree hugging sandal weavers, but because the world would be shit without them. It’s not just about carbon, the point is rainforests are indescribably excellent. So, as Adventurists, we shall fix it. We shall save them all.”
The Adventurists discovered an organisation that was already doing rather a good job protecting more rainforest than the UN and all other nation states on earth – Cool Earth. They are quite literally saving the world. Hats off to them.
As we try to navigate thousands of miles of off-road chaos, suffer sand dunes, survive sub-zero nights, endure scorching desert heat and generally try not to kill each other before the finish line, we hope to raise awareness, joy and support for Cool Earth. This goes directly to them, so you’ll sleep soundly knowing all your pennies are going to a great cause.
