What people are saying about IBT

Dear Marco

Hard to believe it is 1 year since we had our ride with you (which remains a highlight of our trip!). I have been thinking of you and Jodie recently, particularly in light of the Covid 19 pandemic and the difficulties it must place on you. I hope you and your families are all safe and well.

I was able to do my ride in Tanzania and got home a week before we had mandatory 14 day isolation for overseas arrivals! The trip was fabulous – 1600km in 14 days and we climbed about 14000m as well. Mostly really good paved roads but a couple of days on gravel or potholed roads. We were lucky with weather – very little rain and only wind one day and temps usually around 31-32 so not too hot. Really poor country but really beautiful people. A couple of nights were in windowless rooms in towns with no electricity. Most places had holes in the floor for toilets and a bucket of cleanish water to ‘flush’ with. Food was mostly chapati, rice, beans, an egg (poured into a pan so like an omelette but with nothing with it) and sweet tea. Perhaps most importantly we raised nearly $30,000 for the School of St Jude in Arusha, Tanzania.

Still love the idea of a ride in Italy when we are allowed to travel again.

Best wishes
