Australian cycling group here to raise money for local burns unit

Each year, especially in the summer months, the Western Cape experiences a massive increase in fires due to the a combination of hot, dry conditions and the strong south-easterly winds.

A group calling themselves the The Phoenix Flyers 2014 are a team of volunteer fundraisers from Australia, participating in the ABC (Action for Burns and Children) Challenge South Africa 2014, and raising money in aid of the Phoenix Burns Project.
