Walter van Praag has Cystic Fibrosis and does inspirational adventures to raise awareness and funds for CF and encourage people to become Organ Donors.
This year Walter is travelling to the USA to get Phage Therapy to eradicate an antibiotic-resistant bacteria out of his lung. Phage Therapy is a serious contender to replace, or at least adjunct antibiotics treatment to fight antibiotic-resistant infections.
Today was a good day to test the electric batteries. And wow, I did almost 145kms on two batteries, one done at full power. Very impressive. We left Kingston SE at about 930am after saying goodbye to our friendly fellow campers next door and powered towards the Coorongs at high speed.... Marilyn patiently drove 5kms at a time as I rode till my battery stopped and then she stopped at the point where Leonie finished her 100km Century ride! Now we are at Meningie, 147.8kms down the road. Average was 23.4kmph. Hope we can repeat these distances!
