The Road To Kilimanjaro
An old Legs Tour Film
36 000m of climbing, 2900km of cycling, 26 days, 16 Epic Crew, 4 African Countries and one hell of an adventure.
On June 01 2019, a group of 10 middle aged to elderly mountain bike riders rode out of Harare and head north in the general direction of Mt Kilimanjaro, the world’s tallest free standing mountain and Africa’s highest peak. Where possible, they rode on the roads less travelled, through places like Mt Darwin and Mukumbura, up towards Caborra Bassa and on to Tete and into Malawi. Heading north, they hug the shores of Lake Malawi through places like Nkhata Bay and Livingstonia. Once they got up into Southern Tanzania they rode through Tukuyu, up over the Elton Plateau and through the Kitulo National Park, gaining an impressive 7444 meters in just 263 kilometres. Should they survive, they headed north to Iringa, Dodoma and Arusha, eventually ended up at the bottom of the pointy mountain a.k.a. Mt Kilimanjaro.
Raised over US$ 100 000 for the pensioners of Zimbabwe.
