In less than 2 months, we set out for Mt Kilimanjaro on our bicycles. To see if our legs and logistics are ready or not, we staged an Old Legs Mini Tour this last weekend which took us from Harare to the Mavuradonha Wilderness on the edge of the Zambezi escarpment by way of Mt Darwin and Centenary – 290 kms with almost 3000 m of climb in 2 days. We were eight in the riding group including Old Legs members Alastair, Dave, Adam, plus Alan Rheeder all the way from Joburg and me all the way from Mt Hampden plus Laurie Watermeyer, Fi Semper and Vincent Oldenbroek. Manning the vehicles complete with our fully equipped kitchen trailer and our shiny new bike trailer were Jenny, Linda, Bill Annandale and Sarah Chapman.
