Johannesburg Speaker: Gail Day

About the speaker – Gail Day

Gail Day holds her parents entirely to blame for her travel addiction! They habituated her in her teens and she’s hooked … line and sinker. In 1987, on the overnight ferry between Japan and Korea, Gail decided to cycle the 500km to Seoul … and discovered an entirely new high. Since 1999, Charl Heydenrych has been her travel companion … though he will tell you he is there just to carry her bags!

Neither Gail nor Charl are your average long distance cyclist: neither are in the first blush of youth, both are fat, neither do any exercise between cycle trips. On 1 March 2019, after almost four years off the bikes, determined to pay no bribes, Gail and Charl departed Cape Town bound for Casablanca.

Gail will share highlights from their 12,000km journey up the west coast of Africa. Join us!
