Couple start China to India cycle adventure in Feb

Capetonians Thamar and Richard Houliston will begin their exciting 8000-kilometre Beijing to Bombay cycle expedition in February. They plan to cycle from the Great Wall of China (just North of Beijing), through China and Tibet, across the Friendship Highway to the base of Mount Everest and into Nepal and then through Northern India.

In a post on planning this expedition Thamar writes, “The hardest part of living your dreams is taking the first step. Richard and I knew we wanted to do something epic but couldn’t decide where to start as there are so many places we want to experience. The seed was planted but the journey undefined. What we did know is that we wanted to do something extraordinary in a way that we could encounter a place head on and on by our own means. Finally we took the first few steps gave our trip roots by deciding on a region of the globe and that we’d like to cycle. And so slowly the expedition started to take shape and grow in our hearts.”

This expedition should see them on their bikes into mid-July 2012.

Their website is www.beyondthewall.co.za and they’ll also be on Twitter.

“It's one of the best FEATs I have been to – each one is different, I agree, but last night was very special. As I get older, it's such an inspiration to see older peeps getting out there, exploring, engaging with our beautiful country and LIVING – and to have a platform to share it.”


“Congrats on another superb FEAT. I really enjoyed it and I know everyone around me was loving it too!”



“Thank you for a most enjoyable evening with amazing participants! what stories they have to tell...”
