Any journey has to start with a single step, or in this case with a simple turn of the pedals. This is my first vlog about our epic cycling journey where we as a group of ten riders set off to cycle from Pretoria to Port Elizabeth. This journey covered just over 1100km of beautiful South African scenery and took us 9 days to complete. We embarked on this epic cycling journey to help raise funds and awareness for children living in children’s homes around the Pretoria area. We set out on our first day from Pretoria to Heidelberg traveling along the backroads covering a total distance of 108km. With some extraordinary cosmos flower fields on either side of us and great sunshine weather we set out with high hopes and even higher spirits. The vlog takes you through this first day and all the fun we had on the bicycles. One Specific incident where we cycled through fog so thick that you could just about see the rider in front of you delivered some exhilarating experiences for all riders.
