Days Ride…


Elevation of the ride today…

The ride took us from the plain lands of Cortez into forests and then three mountain ranges with altitudes over 3000m including a ride through the “Switzerland” of America. The day overall was fantastic and even the occasional rainstorm that we got caught in didn’t “dampen” the day!!











Be a sport Many of us have the means and wherewithal to undertake the dreams we want but elect to choose otherwise, many however, do not and that is the purpose of this plea. Afrika Tikkun (http://afrikatikkun.org// ) is a South African non governmental, non profit charity organisation run by the Lubner family that in essence does just that; re-provide the possibility to dream and to create the possibility of turning those dreams into a reality.

Unlike many pleas of this nature, I am not looking for any kind of sponsorship for my trip, but I am looking for your donation, regardless of its size to Afrika Tikkun. Please pledge generously as this is a fantastic cause that will assist them to provide food, care, education, health and social services to those that are desperately in need.
