Beyond the Desert Edge

“All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream by night in the dusty recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity: but the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act on their dreams with open eyes … “. ~ T. E. Lawrence

And so the countdown begins to Beyond The Desert Edge, a human-powered expedition from the  Angola border – via the  Skeleton Coast, Hartmansns Valley and the Namibian  hinterland – all the way to  Walvis Bay.

I’m privileged to join forces with one of those daytime dreamers, Peter van Kets, as he navigates this arid wilderness by mountain bike,  laying fat tracks where no man has pedalled before. Together with Peter Kirk Media, we will document every incredible moment of this wilderness ride.

Huge thanks to our headline sponsors Dunlop Tyres SA for their backing – we can’t wait to test those Gramd Trel beauties! Incredible support from Isuzu SA, Spar SA, Wilderness Safaris and  Giant Bikes will further help make this dream a reality. Roll on, September!
