"I've always wanted to travel and to experience as much as I can while I have the opportunity to. I've also always loved bikes and the freedom that it gave me, so when I found the Cairo to Cape Town cycle route, I decided I was going to do it right there and then.
There are other trans-continental cycle routes; the Pan-American highway or the silk road, but something about Africa seems more exciting... Maybe the lions.
You might think that I'm crazy, and if you do, then I understand. I see it like this, I have the oppurtinty to do something extra-ordinary, so I'm going to take it. I refuse to fall into the trap that,
"Youth is wasted on the young". "

"I have had always had a grá for the continent- growing up I loved listining to my mam's stories and looking at photographs from her time spent working in Zambia in the '80's and after my own visit to Malawi, in 2006, this was heightened.
I am very keen to further experience the continent that I have worked so closely with over the last five years and explore its rich cultural heritage. "
