I have set the ambitious goal of an unsupported solo cycle camping trip from the UK to Capetown, via…
(Summer) France, Italy, France, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Montenegro, Albania, Macedonia, Greece, Turkey, Cyprus, Egypt, Sudan, Ethiopia, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Botswana, Namibia then South Africa.
It’s all in aid of a UK charity who refurbish computers and ship them at cost to Kenya and Tanzania. With the help of partner organisations, they oversee teacher training and distribution of computer to schools, colleges and community projects.

My plan is to stop off at AIC Naivasha Polytechnic (

On arrival I will volunteer my services for the following:

  • Work with teachers on course structure and content for IT based subjects
  • Teaching and workshops with students
  • Present real life case studies on industrial projects I have been involved with over the years

For details about how money raised will be used, please go to my donations page..
