We chat to the man who cycled 43,000km through Africa to the Rugby World Cup in England.

Ron Rutland took on a 28 month, 43,000km bicycle expedition through every country on mainland Africa to the 2015 Rugby World Cup in London – celebrating health, vitality, mobility, adventure and life. Two years ago, Ron bought a bicycle and dropped everything to take on the tasking trip which saw him travel through every African country, and through the continent's most diverse environments from savannahs to tropical forests to the Sahara desert.

To prepare for the trip, Ron says he sold everything he owned and bought the necessary equipment for the journey, applied for mulitple passports and sought sponsorship before leaving in June 2013.
