|Start to Finish|
|Day 1 - 20km|
I will attempt to ride a stationary gym bike the distance from The Virgin Active Melrose Arch in Joburg to Camps Bay beach in Cape Town - roughly 1413km. I rode 20km this morning, so only 1393km to go. Yikes!
THE TIME PERIOD
I'm giving myself 100 days to complete the task, which, given my hectic work schedule and severe lack of fitness should be just about enough time before I keel over. What's more, I also vow to ride the last 20km in a full panda suit! Those of you who know me, know I'm not kidding.
THE HELL AM I ON ABOUT?
Glad you asked. I was inspired by an online video I'd found earlier in the day where a creepy Indian dude "rode" his stationary gym bike across America. It took him a year to finish, which got me thinking, "Wow that guy kinda looks like Abed from Community..." and then, "Hey, I can do that. And I'll lose weight!" Then, after a supremely wonderful person gave me some amazing words of wisdom, let's call her Rocky for privacy reasons, I decided to not only ride for myself, but for others too. Which is where you lovely peeps come in.
Sponsor me for each km I ride and I'll donate all the money to charity when I'm done. If you're interested in getting involved, riding alongside me or simply suggesting some charities to donate to, pls mail me, leave a comment or hit me up on twitter. All my contact buttons are to the top right of this page.
Thanks for being awesome.
