Dr Steve Fabes has arrived at the Cape of Good Hope! For those of you who haven’t heard about this yet, Dr Steve Fabes is raising awareness for neglected tropical diseases, (as well as money for the medical charity Merlin) by cycling across the 6 continents of the world. He is doing this single-handed and is not taking any anti-malarials, choosing instead to use incognito spray. Having left London on the 5th of January 2010, he has now traversed the whole of the Africa!
“Cyclists are a vulnerable bunch when it comes to mosquito bites and the diseases they carry … I went on the hunt for a strong repellent that I could use frequently without worrying about nasty side effects or damaging my skin … Whilst riding through the malarial zones in sub-Saharan Africa it [incognito] has been incredibly effective, it also happens to smell great and I would highly recommend anyone to give it a try.”
It really is an inspiring story and his photos thus far are incredible. You can help support him on his journey at www.cyclingthe6.com or keep track of his progress by following his blog at http://www.cyclingthe6.com/index.php/blog
