We’ll ride 2900 kilometres with a total elevation gain of 36000 meters. Which is the equivalent of Mt Everest times four time. We will be riding on mountain bikes, mostly because we don’t have road bikes but also because of dodgy roads. We hope to average somewhere between 100 and 120 kilometres per day, Old Legs and mountains permitting.
We’re riding the Tour to raise money and awareness for the Zimbabwean old age pensioners. The generation that built Zimbabwe have had their pensions, their life savings and their wealth eroded and reduced to nothing by thirty years of mismanagement and silly economics. They now need our help. The Old Legs 2019 Tour is targeting to raise $100,000 for ZANE, Pensioner’s Aid Harare and the Bulawayo Help Network. Between them, our chosen charities look after over 1800 pensioners across Zimbabwe, providing them with food, medicines and somewhere to call home, plus lots of love and hugs. They also facilitate cataract operations, hearing aids, and the list goes on. In addition to their work with the aged, the charities also fund a clubfoot correction program, successfully treating over 2,600 children to date, a prosthetic limb program for landmine victims and provide treatments for children with hearing impairment.
