Good Luck

As the year begins , the adventure starts for a few of my friends. Rod and Julianna who have been riding on Tuesday Mornings since December 2008 and training with Ross start their African Adventure ...riding from Cairo to Cape Town . Good luck to them and may they have a safe and fulfilling adventure of discovery .

The Tour Organiser's link :

The Tour features 96 cycling days or stages, averaging 123 km (77 miles) each, broken up by 22 rest days and 2 days of ferry boat travel for a total of 120 days in traversing Africa from north to south. Stages range from 80 km on rough terrain to more than 180 km on the best paved roads.

Traveling through 10 countries in all, you will cycle along the Nile past ancient temples, through the Sudanese desert, and up and down the biblical landscapes of Ethiopia's rugged Simian Mountains. After crossing the Equator in Kenya, you will pedal past legendary Mount Kilimanjaro, to Lake Malawi, Victoria Falls, and along the edges of the magnificent Kalahari and Namib deserts, en route to the finish of your epic journey in beautiful Cape Town, South Africa.

And Amanda heads to Challenge Wanaka .... Good Luck .
