Cairo To Cape Town by bike

We are cycling Cairo to Cape Town by bike as part our cycle from London to Cape Town.

We’re not attempting to cycle from Cairo to Cape Town at world record speed. Mark Beaumont and the CaroCap team have acheived that this year.

We’re taking our time to cycle the epic Cairo to Cape challenge on our touring bikes, taking 7 months and aiming to raise £30,000 for World Bicycle Relief; a charity that uses the power of bicycles to transform the lives of individuals and communities across Africa.

Read our Cairo to Cape Town blog posts to keep up with all our news as we cycle the length of Africa.
