Friday, October 18, 2013 - 11:45am to 2:00pm

Oct 18 – noon -held at the Berkeley City Club (2315 Durant Ave  Berkeley), the weekly City Commons Club luncheon: If you missed the Sierra Club dinner last month, here’s a chance to enjoy a presentation by our fellow EBBC member Phil Mumford on a fascinating four-month, 7,500-mile, trip by bicycle through Africa from the deserts of Egypt and Sudan, to the mountains of Ethiopia and the game parks of Kenya and Tanzania, along Lake Malawi and through Zambia, Botswana, and Namibia, ending in South Africa. He rode his bicycle for100 days, and took a three-day safari to the Serengeti National Park and the Ngorongoro Crater.

Phil, a retired teacher living in Livermore, has made several extremely long bicycle trips, including across the U.S. coast-to-coast (twice), Canada to Mexico, trans-Europe north- to-south and as well as east-to-west, and also across some of the vast open spaces of Australia

Join us for this exciting adventure on two wheels across many cultures, beautiful and threatening terrain, and daunting distances. Reservations advised - call Jane Barrett at 510-845-8055; Lunch (delicious, hearty buffet) is only $18, though you can attend for free just to see the presentation.
