On April 9th 2016, our 3 person team will begin a gruelling 15,000 km trans-African cycling expedition from Cape Town, South Africa to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We will travel unsupported for up to 10 months, carrying all our gear, cycling through remote desert, thorny savannah, and mushrooming cities. We will rely on our own self-sufficiency, and on the Ubuntu spirit of the people we meet.
We shall embrace the latest Apple iPhone technologies to demonstrate the power of mobile video journalism by producing high quality documentary shorts on the move. We will charge our devices as much as possible using portable solar power. We will produce documentary shorts that showcase ordinary people doing extraordinary things for their community and the planet. We seek to foster cultural exchange between people all over the world through the sharing of stories, challenging negative perceptions of Africa and promoting its innovation, ingenuity and resilience.
