By Cam "Cambo" Kernes We’ve been blown away by the generosity of people who have so willingly supported the Qhubeka charity in support of our #Joburg2Kili expedition.

The total amount raised to date is R55,620 which equates to 19 bicycles which will be handed out to children to enable them to ride themselves to school instead of walking an hour or more to and from school each day.

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...
