Hi, my name is Daniel Wood and in January of next year I will be ditching the desk job for a while and embarking on an adventure in Africa as a rider on the Tour d'Afrique. The journey will see myself and a group of intrepid travelers cycling through ten countries on a four month, 12,000km ride from Cairo to Cape Town.
On this site I will be keeping everyone up to date on the trip, from the planning and preparation, to the Tour d'Afrique itself - decent internet permitting.
I will also be raising money for the Heart Foundations in both New Zealand and Australia - because we love our friends across the ditch :) The Heart Foundation not only fund research into the prevention of heart disease, they also work tirelessly to promote healthy living and a healthy lifestyle, something that I feel very strongly about. I hope to raise $12,000 towards the foundations, one for each kilometer I will cycle.
Please help by using the button provided and give a little toward a very worthwhile and deserving cause. →
$7423 raised so far!
Today is our first riding day in Kenya and it will be a tough one being all off-road. Out of Moyale we take a long downhill which is a mix of gravel and sand, some very treacherous riding...
Petroleum Solutions wishes you all the best. Look forward to following your amazing journey.
Good luck with your great adventure. We look forward to your stories upon your return. Have a safe ride, from the team at IVE.
