Earlier this month avid cyclists Martin Dreyer and his wife Jeannie managed to scale Africa’s highest mountain by riding and pushing their mountain bikes to the summit. It’s not the first time Kilimanjaro has been scaled this way – British TV presenter Nick Crane and his cousin Richard are believed to have been the first to manage it back in the early eighties – but apparently this is the first time it’s been managed on the mountain’s second-most popular trail, the Marangu Route.

The pair, from South Africa, took just four days to get to the summit – but were able to descend in just four hours!
