He wishes to invite people to try new things and expand their minds, seeing new places and meet new people.
In the middle of a worldwide pandemic, Mikkel and his friend set off on bicycles from Copenhagen with the aim of reaching Bangladesh. Due to closed borders, they had to change plans, so they headed South instead and 10 months later, found themselves in Cape Town, South Africa, after cycling through Uganda, Kenya, Tanzania, Zambia, Botswana and Namibia. Being surrounded by elephants, giraffes, hippos and zebras on a bicycle is quite magical and life back home in Denmark doesn’t get much further from life in Africa. Even though you see curiosity, lively eyes and big smiles, Africa still has a dark cloud above it and being faced with extreme poverty is inevitable. Come and listen to some amazing stories from Mikkel’s adventures on a bicycle through Africa.
