Last night they made it to Addis Ababa the capital of Ethiopia and are staying at the British embassy, where they are enjoying a well earned shower and shave!

To date, they’ve pedalled for 14 days, averaging 260 km/day with 9 hours per session.

Breaking news is that they’re back on their bikes and heading further south through Ethiopia.

Are they on target to make it to Cape Town in 40 Days to claim the world record?

I don’t know!!

However, I will let you know, when I know 🙂
