Everybody, this is a direct paste from the Velocity Cycling Club (my colours) web-site, based in Edmonton, Alberta....
As some of you may know, Randy Murchison (Velocity track coach extraordinaire and all around nice guy) and his son Steven will be going to Africa to take part in the Tour d'afrique this January. Steven is riding from Cairo to Capetown, 12,000 km's, and Randy will ride along for the first section to the capital of Sudan, Khartoum. They are doing this in support of Water Can, a charity that works directly on improving safe water access in remote parts of Africa.

Thanks from Randy and Steven
Let's all wish for a good adventure and safe riding for Steven & Randy
