Cape Town - the final destination ©
Well, the guys have made it to Cape Town, and their expressions above say it all.
The guys arrived in Cape Town by convoy yesterday - see a glimpse of the events in the clips above. It would be great to see some of your highlights of the day - if you were there and have put up pictures or movies on the web, send a link via a comment below.
Ewan stopped to think about the 15,000 miles they've travelled ... 'So here we are, Charley and I have made it to Cape Agulhas, and we've got to ride to Cape Town after this, so this trip's not quite finished. But this is the most southerly point, and we started in the most northerly point of Great Britain, in Scotland, and we've made it to the most southerly point in Africa - we've done that much at least.'
Ewan and Charley and the LWD team were then joined by a convoy of biking well wishers for the last few miles into Cape Town. Congratulations guys, what a trip, and thanks for having us along.
Thank you too for all your messages of congratulations and thanks to the guys on the road and the web team here at the BBC. We're going to miss these updates as much as you are - but will miss all your wonderful comments just as much - all your encouragement, advice, humour, they really cheered us up each day, and made this trip feel like a truly global event with so many messages coming in from around the world. Hope you can all catch the series at some point - it's on in the UK on BBC TWO this Autumn.
