Cycling the desert to save the rhino:

The 2011 Challenge4aCause Damaraland Challenge has come to a successful close. All the cyclists completed the grueling 300km ride through the harsh desert conditions and in so doing have raised funds to help save the endangered desert adapted black rhino! We’ll be updating our blog with full video, pics and a write up in the coming days, but we thought in the meantime we would give you a little teaser post to show you some of the spectacular event!
