Last year Dave and I cycled from Cairo Egypt to Cape Town South Africa. It was an experience of a lifetime to travel through some of the most remote countries in the world. Unfortunately, some of these countries were also some of the poorest and unstable in the world.
That was why we decided to ride for a cause. Formerly Foster Parents Plan, Plan Canada is an international organization that works at a grassroots level to help communities in Africa develop a long term plan to improve their living conditions. They give them the means to become self sufficient and to no longer rely on foreign aid.
We are blessed and lucky to live in a country that is so rich. We have the opportunity to travel to different parts of the world and to see different ways of life.
Cycling in The Tour d’Afrique was the perfect opportunity to raise awareness about our cause. It was a large international race that already had followers and a fan base. We easily gained exposure through their website and through media to talk about not only the race, but to raise awareness for our Cause and to direct them to our site and to Plan to find information on how to help.

I had never witnessed so many shades of blue and I couldn’t comprehend the beauty around me.
But what we were really excited to see was the sculpture of a whale skeleton that someone put together years ago.
