A Lympstone pensioner who took on a 20,000 mile motorbike ride from Alaska to Argentina will be speaking about his journey at a special event.
On Monday, June 11, 2018, 67-year-old Phil Corcos picked up his fifteen-year-old 400cc motorbike from Anchorage Airport in Alaska to start his epic journey.
Phil, who is married with three grown up children, wanted to challenge assumptions about what older people can do and raise money for Exmouth and Lympstone Hospiscare.
His travels took him through Alaska, Canada, Monterey and some of the famous national parks of the USA.
