Meet our Jeep Support Crew – Bryan and Bobby

Jeep

This expedition would not be possible without a great support team who’ll be keeping us safe and helping to run things smoothly. Many of the roads which will be cycled don’t have a wide shoulder and other roads in East Africa have so many potholes that the trucks end up driving off the verge rather than on the road. In either case, having Bryan and Bobby in a Jeep Wrangler behind the bikes will ensure the trucks keep a safe distance. Having the vehicle also allows for a few “luxuries” like extra water containers, more packing space and a roof top tent on top of the camping trailer.

We’re thrilled to have Bryan and Bobby on board. Read a brief bio on each of them below.

What are you looking forward to most about the #Joburg2Kili expedition?

The reason I’m excited for this expedition is because I will get to see Africa, well Southern Africa from a different perspective. I love the bush, especially African bush. Just being outdoors in Africa is calming so this is a great way to do it, a different place most nights.

What do you think will be the hardest part of the expedition?

The most challenging part of the trip I think is going to be if we have any break downs and punctures especially with the bikes as this can cause time delays.
