They made it!

Congratulations to the Northbound crew who arrived to a warm welcome from the Wellspring team today in Kigali.

Covered from head to toe in dust and full of tales of muddy roads, encounters with gorillas (that’s the unarmed and hairy type) and the joys of getting five bikes past suspicious border guards, they rode into the Wellspring compound with smiles on their faces and our teams applause echoing in their ears .

Now we have some very dirty bikes to clean, some cables to replace and some tires to swap out, not to mention 5 oil changes and a bunch of other stuff. It’s a long way back to South Africa and in one week, these babies have to be ready to go again!
