Cycling for Good Causes

Re-Cycle

I bumped into a friendly fellow with his young family in the subway of Colchester railway station. I had a bike on me, and he asked me to do a Google search for 'bicycle charity', because he's doing a ride across Africa or something.

I've since looked this up, and I think that he's part of Re-Cycle, Bicycle Aid For Africa. The charity has administration in Colchester and Brighton, so maybe this fellow is connected?

Anyway, I can't find anything about a specific sponsored ride, so I hope he gets back in touch so that I can pass on my best wishes properly!
