My story

[p]Hello, my name is Jack and I'm 19. I decided to take a year off before going to university and wanted to do something a little bit different. I made the crazy decision to cycle unaided from Nairobi, Kenya 9000km through 11 countries to Cape Town, South Africa. (find out more and follow my blog at www.africatheride.com) [/p][p]I am raising money for two charities doing invaluable work across Africa, through conservation projects, community projects and supporting a school for orphans in rural Uganda. (find out more on their websites below) [/p][p]Any donation would be greatly appreciated. All money raised is split between the two charities and goes directly to the charities. [/p][p]Thank you for all your support :) [/p]
