Actual Route - As texted in by Alan and Ian on route.
The mission is simple: To cycle from London, England to Cape Town, South Africa.
Over the course of the journey, we hope to achieve three main goals:
- To complete the route in 12 months
- To raise money and awareness for Childreach
- To climb Mount Kilimanjaro
The plan is to leave the London Eye on 31st May 2009 and arrive at the
Green Point Stadium, Cape Town on 1 June 2010 - just in time to see the football World Cup!
While boats will allow us to cross water, and a plane will take us over the less stable countries, the journey will be made predominately on bicycles.
Intensive physical training for EyeOnAfrica began in 2007, and included EyeOnUK - a 1,000 mile ride, stretching the length of the UK.
