The history of SideCar City is from another project called Scooters For Goalposts which was a unique historical 6 month sidecar adventure from London to Rio de Janeiro for the Brazil World Cup 2014 in aid of UNICEF. Whilst riding through different cities and countries people would help me navigate without getting (very) lost! We would talk about the history of the countries, the cities, the towns and sights which were pointed out and the history behind the neighbourhoods. This gave me the idea to do the same when people visit the great city of London.
The trip itself caught the imagination around the world and the below links are some of the media who covered the adventure.

Brazil – Rede TV
UK – Daily Mail Online

UK – ITV London News featuring Gary Mabbutt (England and Spurs legend). He eloquently commented “I think Chris is completely mad to ride the sidecar all the way from London to Rio”
