Micheal of Mountain Equipment Co-Op Canada: We had a great slide show here last night about one couple’s experience last year on the Cairo to Cape Town Tour d’Afrique bike race. It was standing room only. The presenters put on a really impressive show relating their experience of cycling from Cairo to Cape Town with the Tour d’Afrique race. Great images, wonderful presentation, and humour: just the sort of thing to inspire folks to undertake their own adventures. We may have them back to for an encore.
