"If we were going to ask people to support our various causes during these tough times, we had to dig deep and do a tour of epic proportions. For me, “The Phat GM”, a cycle trip of 50km is epic and beyond my comfort zone, so we decided to do a 1,000km. Makes sense...doesn't it?" Gerhard said.

On the 30th of August, the two men officially started their lengthy expedition from Lythwood Lodge near Lidgetton, KZN to The Kitchen Windows in Jeffreys Bay, Eastern Cape - with expected arrival on Sunday, 27 September.

With their last stop, they were able to unwind a bit at their guesthouse and spent some time fishing. 

Although there weren't many fish being caught, but it's the thought that counts. 

If you want to follow them on their journey, virtually, of course, make sure to tune in every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 11h30 as we get a live update!
