Bobby Bruce was raised in Port Coquitlam and is known world-wide for his performances as Nearly Neil. Nearly Neil draws thousands of fans to shows from all over the world. The team is pleased to welcome all cycling enthusiasts, members of the public and Neil Diamond fans to join us at this awesome event.

The first edition of this awesome ride starts in Paris September 10th, 2006 and the finish is after 7000 kilometres, ten weeks later in Dakar.

We want to grow into a great event which gets a fixed date on the calendar for cycling tourists.

Our aim is to join the list of TransRockies, Paris-Brest-Paris, Cape Epic, Trondheim-Oslo, etc.

We understand that the duration, distance and price is not feasible for everyone, but we really hope to get a bunch of people who are interested in an event like "Paris-Dakar".
