African Spokes




It all started when...

James (a Kenyan) met Floey (a South African). They fell madly in love, and then came Farrin.

James, being who he is*, began to itch for more adventure (as if parenting a 2-year-old wasn't enough). So he convinced Floey to let him cross a Kenya to South African overland cycling trip off of his bucket list. 

But he couldn't do it alone, and that's where you come in. 

African Spokes is a 68-day, 6,520 KM cycling trip starting in Nairobi and ending in Cape Town.

You can be a part of this epic adventure with James, along with his right-hand-woman Jen Gurecki, the CEO of Coalition Snow and the founder of Zawadisha.

African Spokes is also the latest adventure in an amazing partnership with Virgin Atlantic pilot, Chris Hall, who has bought together hundreds of people from across Virgin with his ‘Adventures’. It all began back in 2010 with a climb of Mt. Kenya, the second highest peak in Africa.

The Adventurers’ thirst for original and challenging adventure, based on the Virgin model of “have fun, do good,” have witnessed James lead more than eight bespoke adventures, involving nearly 300 Virgin people, including their cycle challenge from Nairobi to the Maasai Mara.

You're invited to join us for one or more legs.  We'll lead you through game parks, sandy deserts, thinly populated countrysides, and jaw dropping waterfronts. 

James will tell you that there's no better way to see Africa, and he should know. You'll see things that most people fly over, all while raising funds for some awesome causes doing even more awesome things across Africa. This will be an experience of a lifetime.
