Cape Town cyclist and serial adventurer, Cally Silberbauer, plans to ride from Cape Town to Kilimanjaro - and summit Africa’s highest peak in the quickest time when she gets there.

"About two years ago, I listened to a podcast describing Rebecca Rusch’s cycle up and down Mount Kilimanjaro. This reignited the flame of something that I had wanted to do for a long time."

"I needed to add my own twist and decided to ride my bike to Kilimanjaro before starting the climb. I have done some bike packing locally, but I felt it was time to explore a bit of Africa," says Silberbauer.
