The going gets tough in Tanzania

You might remember that Steve Box and Jim Stokes are currently cycling 350 km across Tanzania to raise money for the Keech Hospice children’s ward.

At day four into the trek, we heard from a very weary sounding Jim.  Apparently the guys are finding it a huge challenge, mainly because they are cycling on tough, dirt track roads in extremely high temperatures.

I am sure you will agree that to complete the trek would be no mean feat in good conditions but in 36 degree heat it becomes quite a test of physical and mental endurance.  The pic shows a typical unmade road in the Kilimanjaro area, where the adventure began earlier this week.

All the best to Steve and Jim for the remainder of the cycle route.
