Afrikalegburn – Grant Clark – 2 January 2017

“To raise exposure, funds and books for Shine, I will endeavour to cycle from Cairo to Cape Town arriving in time for the 40th Cape Town Cycle Tour on the 12 March 2017. One week later I will be on the start line for the toughest mountain bike stage in the world, The ABSA Cape Epic which will kick off 8 days of grueling riding on the 19 March 2017. One week after completing the Cape Epic, I will line up for the IRONMAN SA Championships in Port Elizabeth on the 2 April 2017.”

I thought about staying here, but then read the bottom line…on second thoughts, doesn’t sound very comfortable at all…I moved on.

If you are ever passing through Marsabit in North Kenya, go straight to Chicho Hotel and ask for Boru, do not go anywhere else! Legend family run guesthouse and a superb place to rest for a couple of days as I was feeling super moeg ??

Woohoo…out of the Ethiopian mountains and back into…the desert?!! What? Again? No man! Ah come on! Where’s my green Kenyan African plains with wildebeest running majestically across it? Er sorry sir, that’s southern Kenya, first you have to cross roughly 250km of the Chalbi desert…also that south easterly wind you’ve been battling for the past week? Ya, it’s also still here. Have fun!
