He will start from the Land’s End of England and ride to Dover where he will travel on the Eurotunnel to France and then onto Morroco and through Senegal, Mali and Togo before reaching Nigeria.
On getting to Nigeria, he will spend 16 weeks biking across the country, covering 30,000 miles to break the world record for the longest motorcycle ride in a single country
To help with his fundraising efforts, Mr Alokwe is running a charity golf day at Surrey National Golf Club on August 22.
His upcoming journey will take him through 12 countries (England, England, France, Spain, Morocco, Western Sahara, Senegal, Mauritania, Mali, Burkina Faso, Togo, Benin and Nigeria).
