Tackling COVID in Africa with Two Wheels for Life

Science Shambles


The mantra of ‘We’re not vaccinated against COVID until the whole world is vaccinated’ is now more prevalent than ever. At last year’s British MotoGP round at Silverstone Robin Ince went along to meet up with Andrea Coleman and 13 time Grand Prix winner Randy Mamola, founders of the charity Two Wheels for Life. The charity uses motorcycles to deliver healthcare, and now, COVID vaccines to hard to reach rural communities in Africa. Robin, Andrea and Randy chat about their work during the pandemic, how the charity got started and changing the public perception around motorcycles.

Special thanks to Dorna and Silverstone.

Two Wheels for Life is one of the charities we supported at 2021’s Christmas Compendium of Reason, hosted by Robin and Brian Cox. Find out more at twowheelsforlife.org
