Eric de Jong

This is Eric ‘Chicken Legs’ de Jong.

Eric is 58 years old and has been riding socially for +/- the last 4 years. He has no idea where ‘Chicken Legs’ bit comes from as he far prefers the other bits on a roast Chicken. Eric has three Blue Cross rides – 500 kilometres from the lowest point in Zimbabwe to the highest- under his belt. Other notable sporting achievements include a starting berth in the Allan Wilson under 15 C rugby team which enjoyed a two match winning streak and a fifth place finish in the 100 meter hurdles. Hopefully the Harare- Cape Town ride will be the first of many epic tours.

When he is not falling off bicycles, Eric grows cut flowers for export on a farm on the outskirts of Harare. He is married with 3 grown children and a pair of too cute granddaughters.

Cape Town Is Calling

Cape Town is certainly calling! Perhaps this song by Ossie could be our theme track for the 3,200km we have to cover?
