Jack – Africa the Ride

Last September, Jack went to Temple Cycles with an idea to ride 6000km fully unsupported through 6 nations in Africa, traversing a variety of treacherous terrain from grasslands and rainforests to deserts and mountains, carrying all his kit and essential supplies too.

He needed a bike fit for the purpose. Temple Cycles set him up.

Jack made it back in one piece after 4 months, reporting that the only mechanical issues the bike had was a plight of punctures caused by miles of roads covered in elephant sized thorns.
