I am interested in contacting some others in a similar position so as to arrange a bike share , one of us can ride it out and the other ride it back. This should theoretically double the range achievable in 2 weeks although one snag with this is that i dont particularly like to use planes either (on principle as they pollute so much but there again i have flexible principles
So ,hello every one!
If your principles get reaaaallly flexible, you're welcome to fly to Cape Town, use one of our XTs, ride it for 2 weeks across Southern Africa, and fly back. We've managed to do 5,000kms in 2 weeks - check out our website.
One snag: no chance of bike share because we wouldn't be seen dead on, in, on the back of, or near a BMW...
Also we're Londoners, so we don't really travel north of Camden... (isn't Sheffield some sort of cutlery set?)
[only kidding, ofcourse, except about using our bikes]
