Congratulations to everyone for completing the trip. A special congratulations to Chris Dick. I knew you could do it, you are too stubborn to be defeated. Have a safe trip home. We’ll see you soon.

    Congratulations to the whole team who finished this incredible odyssey – but especially to DeeDee. I am in awe of what you have accomplished and so very proud of you. I have followed your epic journey for the last four months. Wish I could be there to see the finish and join in the celebrations. I look forward to seeing you again and hearing all your stories, but that will have to wait until you finish your cycling trip across Europe…as if 12,000 km in the saddle across Africa was not enough. Well done DeeDee. You are amazing. Love Mom
