After returning from two months assisting at the Thamsanqa orphanage in South Africa, Eric Olverson felt he needed to do more to help. Despite having had life-threatening meningitis a few years previously, he decided at the age of 59 to take on what would be one of the most demanding undertakings of his life - a 12,000 km sponsored cycle ride across Africa - which would challenge him physically and mentally and alter his view of life. This is his story of why he decided to do this journey and what happened. He describes the daily challenges, the hair-raising and often hilarious situations he gets into, his bonding with his fellow riders over the 4-month journey and eloquently depicts the continent of Africa as a land of shifting landscapes, diverse people and cultures and sheer beauty.
