Jaap did it!


The Old Legs Tour- pedaling from Harare to Mt Kilimanjaro to raise money and awareness for Zimbabwe pensioners. People to whom we owe a massive debt of gratitude for enabling us to inherit the wealth of their toil. 

To ride to Tanzania and Africa's most famous mountain to support them is a huge honour and privilege and admittedly, great fun. It was a fantastic experience. Heavy, but the landscape we cycled through was beautiful. Sloping, rough, flat steppe, busy cities and lots of sweet people and beautiful animals. Lots of flat tires and challenges but oh what was this great to do.

The most important thing is that I was able to do my bit to reduce the suffering of the Zimbabwean pensioners
I will continue to fight for this group, they deserve it. A huge thanks to his major sponsors, Marginpar, Evanthia, Nachtvlinder, Green House Technology, Empas and all other people who made a donation.
