 Mongol Rally 2016 Whaaaaat?

Mongol Rally 2016 Whhhhy?

Because women need people like you and me. We’re determined to fight for women’s rights and be there on the ground, meeting and speaking to women from all walks of life through the 21 countries we’re going through. We want to highlight global women’s issues and make a change. Firstly, we’re supporting two amazingly kickass woman-friendly charities, Mountain 2 Mountain and Coolearth (which you can find out more about further down in this post) but secondly, we’re determined to speak with NGOs along the way too and promote their essential work to you guys!

We’re making a book and a documentary from all the material we gather and cannot wait to share it with you at the end of our journey!

We can’t change everything in 49-ish days but we’re gonna have a good crack at starting something to raise awareness of what’s going on in the world and our book and film is going to be a good start!

If we’re gonna get from the UK to Mongolia in two tin cans and speed through unknown, mysterious lands by the seat of our pants, #WeLive Mongol Rally 2016 is not just gonna do this for human research and our own unstable tendencies. Hell no. Mother Theresa is going to be high-fiving us from the skies on this one. How? By saying ‘Yes, You Go Girls!’ for us supporting two super charities: Cool Earth and Mountain 2 Mountain.

When is the Mongol Rally 2016?

With all the shenanigans that we’ll be getting up to we might as well just guffaw and yell, ‘How long is a piece of string love?’ but *theoretically* the race will be from the 17th July to the 10th September 2016. That’s 49-ish days of insanity Sean T wishes he could get in on. Basically, all we can guarantee to you is that we will be in a car from the 17th of July. Whether that car even works and gets us out of the UK will be up to the grace of the Gods and magical cosmos luck. Get praying folks!

    I have no good way to contact y’all but be careful. Reports of people getting looted during car searches in Norduk crossing to Uzbekistan. Be careful!

  2. Tara- Hippie Hits The Road says:

    You ladies ROCK SO HARD! I can’t wait to follow along! Thanks for doing and sharing this! I couldn’t agree more with Izzy that “This is so freaking-feminism-foralways-fantastic!”
    This will certainly be the adventure of a lifetime, and done for the women of the world. Wow.
    Safe roads, ladies!
    Peace out and Adventure on!!

  3. Christie Mitchell says:

    I’m really excited to follow your journey! I’m Tabitha’s old roommate, and I might actually be in Europe at the same time as you all. I’m considering hopping over to say hello as you start your travels. 🙂

  4. Bethany says:

    I’m excited for Turkey! They have the best coffee and tea, I hear. My women’s question for this country: How do the women act in public? Do they enjoy drinks in groups outdoors, or is it just the men? My apologies if my idea of Turkey is inaccurate. Also–their Turkish Delight is AMAZING.

    • Alice teacake says:

      Hey Bethany! I actually have no idea either! No better reason to go and do the Mongol Rally to see how women drink their tea in Turkey 🙂 Hopefully another reader who has been to Turkey already can answer our question!

    • Alice teacake says:

      Aww thank you Richelle! I still can’t quite believe we’re doing it ourselves! We’re stupidly excited but also like ‘Are we really gonna do this?’ Yes we are! Boom!

  5. Izzy says:

    This is so freaking-feminism-foralways-fantastic! I am amazed by the camaraderie women have around the world for their imagined sisterhood and I am so proud to be a part of this gender. May your goals be met because your goals are ALL our goals! Much love to everyone of you participating!

  6. Leah says:

    Niiiiiice! Can’t wait to follow your adventure. A friend of a friend has done the rally and I’d love to do it myself some day. I see you’re ending up in Irkutsk? Get thee to Lake Baikal and spend some time there! I spent two weeks volunteering with Great Baikal Trail and it was one of the happiest times of my life. Ahh, your route looks awesome. And you’re supporting some really good organizations too. High five!

    • Alice teacake says:

      Thank you so much Leah and thanks for the recommendation about Lake Baikal. It’s most certainly on our list! We’re excited to be finding out about the local women in the countries we visit and the joys and difficulties they are experiencing

  7. Claire says:

    Amazing! I’ve read so many accounts of boy teams doing the rally, but yours is one of the only girl ones i’ve stumbled across. You go girls! Already looking forward to reading about it.

    I’ll share your post and donate when I can 🙂

  8. Gemma says:

    Sounds absolutly amazing! my other half lives cars and racing, and I love travel…aim already wondering if we could follow your footsteps in 2018! 🙂
