MACC Rides the Motherland, AFRICA!

Our Hubert Watson (Utube) had a dream to take MACC to Africa and after 2 years of planning (1 year a postponement), his dream has finally come true in 2021! Hubert and 12 other members & friends made that long trip to the motherland to participate in an 11-day “Serengeti to the Sea” bicycle tour hosted by Pedalers Travel. The initial stage of the tour is non-cycling but adventurous, cycling will start around the 5th day averaging 50-miles a day. You can live their experience vicariously through Ralph Lyons’s daily Facebook blog linked below.
