We have arrived in Cape Town!
Four months, sandstorm in Sudan, riots in Zambia, two broken rims, two flat tires, one infected leg, one broken hub, two non-working tent zippers, heat exhaustion in Sudan, many stones in Ethiopia, elections in Kenya, mud in Tanzania, hustlers in Egypt, a naked mile in Namibia, an old ferry across Lake Nassar, three broken cameras…and it now comes to completion.
It was a fun ride today. First 61 km of highway to a beach where we assembled, had lunch and took photos. Next almost 30km of convoy that became progressively more interesting as we used dedicated bus lanes and police were stopping traffic as we went through heart of the city. Finally into waterfront district, on a path and under a finish banner. We celebrated and gave well deserved awards for race winners and efi. Tonight a dinner and then will be complete.
Below some photos of the participants.

Congrats to you Mike for completing such an endevour!
