My name is Rob Forbes and this website will follow my progress as I swim, bike and run my way from Cirencester to South Africa to support England in the 2010 World Cup.
SWIM 20 km
Strait of Gibraltar

CYCLE 20,000 km
Cirencester to South Africa

RUN 89 km

With only 8 months to complete this epic triathlon it promises to be an incredible physical and mental challenge.
All for the charity Re-Cycle
I hope to raise a £1 per km - £20,000 - of the journey for the charity Re-Cycle who provide bicycle aid to Africa. I plan to visit a number of the charity's projects en route and conclude this journey of a lifetime by visiting their project based in Cape Town, Johannesburg or Lesotho. (England Fixtures dependent).
Please donate to this great cause by clicking here, 100% of donations go to the charity.
Re~Cycle's mission is to collect secondhand bicycles and ship them to Africa. Their partners distribute bikes and teach riders the skills to repair and maintain them. Their bikes also help health/AIDS workers reach remote villages and even provide an ambulance service in remote Namibia.
