The Americas 2013

A Motorcycle Diary

22 August 2013

22 Aug

Today was a long 830km day and the longest days ride that Jax has had to do on this entire trip…and she coped amazingly! Not a single moan or whimper eventhough I knew she was tired and cold.

We left Saskatoon at about 9:30 to head for Winnipeg and as suspected, although the roads are flat and straight which makes for fast but monotonous riding, the terrain was uninspiring with patches of beauty but nothing photo worthy, and so all that we have to share with you today is a track route of the day.

Tomorrow we head back into the US to the shores of Lake superior so no doubt the vistas will become more lively over the following days!

Days ride..

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.
