From 24 January 2011 until 4 april 2011 I cycled from Cairo (Egypt) to Cape Town (South Africa) crossing 10 different countries, a total of 11.200 km. It's a new Guinness World Record set on 70 days, 3 hours and 50 minutes.
By cycling straight across Africa I raised money for a project in Nyanje, Zambia; clean water supply and sanitation for the primary and secondary school.
This video shows the results.
