Crazy Nomad Jason Doyle and his good friend Tony Visser started their epic Fundraising Ride from Johannesburg to Cape Town (approximately 1 400 kms) on motorised bicycles to raise funds for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust, last Saturday, 15 December.
The guys left from Melrose Arch on Saturday and have been making good time each day despite having to keep off the major highways due to their motorised bicycles only having 60cc engines (which means LOTS of pedaling) and dealing with some really bad gravel roads.
Fortunately they are quite flexible re their planned route and made some adjustments so that the road on Monday was not as bad as Sunday’s road….
The guys say that they are having great fun on the way, meeting some really interesting and interested folks and all while fundraising for the Little Fighters Cancer Trust to raise funds for Children with Cancer and their Families.
If all goes according to plan, our intrepid riders should arrive in Cape Town on 30 December 2018.
Roughly planned route for leaving on 15 December and arriving on 30 December.
Day 1: Melrose Arch to Vaal 140 km
Day 2: Vaal to Hennenman 189 km
Day 3: Hennenman to Bloemfontein 162-185 km
