The #GlasgowtoCapeTown Adventure Begins!
Earlier today some of the Adeo Group team headed down to Nelson Mandela Place in Glasgow to cheer on Bruce and Susanne as they began the amazing #GlasgowtoCapeTown challenge.
For those of you not in the know, E-Bike Africa is a global awareness raising action on climate change, organised by The Purple Heart Network and lead sponsor Pedelec Adventures with Susanne Bruesch.
E-Bike Africa is a 20,000km expedition from Glasgow to Cape Town that will be carried out on a pedal-assisted e-bike. E-Bikes use a combination of human effort and electric power to help the rider go further and last longer.
On the expedition Bruce and Susanne won’t have direct access to renewable mains power in Africa, so, as they wish to minimise their carbon footprint as much as possible, will instead generate power using a custom-designed solar trailer. The trailer will harvest the sun’s energy throughout the day allowing the two to charge the e-bike batteries and other electrical equipment.
Adeo Group web design Glasgow were lucky enough to be involved in the project, designing and launching the E-Bike Africa website earlier this year. We are excited to follow the 20,000KM journey to highlight climate change and excited to see more photos as the journey continues.
Here’s a video of the team as they set off this morning…
From everyone at Adeo, we wish Bruce & Susanne the best of luck on their trip.
