Today was the very last biking day of Bike for Africa 2018, an edition never to forget! At 9AM we left our accommodation at the lake of Petpenoun to bike to Foumbot where we were warmly welcomed by the Technical School of Foumbat. This school was one of our good causes for this edition and we’re happy to hand over a cheque of €12,500 that will be used to construct a roof for extra class rooms.
After a very nice ceremony with the cutest little children it was time to continue our journey towards our lunch spot. If you read yesterday’s blog, you know we thought we had the coolest lunch spot, but after today we have to take those words back… Today we lunched on a volcano!
Once arrived, after another steep hill, 400 steps were waiting for us to go to the top of the crater. Not that easy when you already biked over 300km during the last few days, but everyone joined us upstairs. And the view was so worth it!
After this amazing view, we headed back to Petpenoun for the finish line. And that finish line was crossed with the same enthusiasm as we saw at the start! An impressive achievement after biking for 328km in the heat and with the steepest hills!
All of us look back on a fantastic edition of Bike for Africa where we met lots of new and very nice people and where we biked through the most beautiful towns and landscapes! Tomorrow evening we head back to Brussels, but not before we visit Mercy Ships in Douala, our biggest good cause of this year.
