Khartoum to Cape Town
I am an enthusiastic, active and adventure-seeking individual. I will leave the corporate rat race for a while to cure my long running travel bug - by the time we cross the finish line in Cape Town, I will have travelled, lived and worked in some 50 countries. It has been a childhood dream of mine to spend an extended time in Africa and I can't think of a better way to start this journey than by bike.
Originally from Germany, I have lived in New Zealand for the last 8 years, enjoying the great outdoors. I am a keen surfer, runner, snowboarder, rock climber, scuba diver, mountain biker and photographer. A mtb-er by heart, I will have to get used to the long daily road distances of the TDA - but can't wait for the challenge!
Look forward to celebrating my birthday with all of you like-minded, similarly-mad people in Khartoum on Day One on 10 January!
