Tim Forde is cycling the Tour d'Afrique. This is a bicycle ride of 11,220 kms starting on 17 January 2019 in Cairo, Egypt and finishing in Cape Town, South Africa on 12 May 2019.

Look in our Gallery for a map of his journey.

Tim is generously donating all the funds that he raises on this ride to the Rhodesian Services Association - a New Zealand registered charity whose focus is the preservation of Rhodesian military history from 1890 to 1980 through The Lion & Tusk Museum and associated digital archive projects.

Tim was born in Bulawayo, Southern Rhodesia, one of eight children; five sisters and two brothers. He went to school at St Thomas Aquinas, Greenfield in Bellevue and Hamilton High. He did his National Service in 1971 with Intake 119 and then served with the 4th (Manicaland) Battalion Rhodesia Regiment, Anti Tank Platoon.

Tim is undertaking this ride, also in memory of his two deceased brothers, who both died in their early 50's: Patrick (who served with 10th Battalion Rhodesia Regiment) and Liam (who served with Grey's Scouts and was also known as 'Bones').

About us

Use of funds

Funds raised by Tim will go to the Rhodesian Services Association for the preservation of Rhodesian military history from 1890 to 1980 through The Lion & Tusk Museum and associated digital archive projects.

Extended Fundraising Period  20 June 2019

Greetings to our generous supporters.

The ever helpful support team at Givealittle have agreed that we can extend the period of this project out to 31st December 2019. This request for extension is on account that Tim is busy writing up his adventure which we intend to publish to our email subscribers when it is complete and it will also be published in the September issue of the Rhodesians World Wide magazine.

We will endeavour to extract and publish the email version of Tim's story in an update on this Givealittle page.

Big thanks to Tim, to Givealittle and to you folks who donated in support of Tim and The Lion and Tusk Museum. Please keep spreading the word folks.
