Cycletour Trip Africa

Postby cairotocapetown on Sun 31/Aug/14 6:31pm

I plan to bike Cairo to Cape Town next year start approx. end of Jan 2015. If anyone is planning a similar trip and would like to join part or all of the way then pls get in touch. I am South African live in NZ and know the continent a little but have never biked in any parts of Africa apart from South Africa. If anyone has biked or travelled in Africa and have any advise then I would very much appreciate it. Thanks

I haven't read this yet, but have a physical copy on my bookshelf at home. There might be something useful (or simply motivational) in it =} ... 22759.html

Long time lurker here.

I rode the Tour d'Afrique in 2013 all the way so am happy to answer any questions you have. Feel free to PM or email me "daniel at weekbicks dot com"

There were also 4 other kiwis on the full tour that year (plus Lindsay who rode a couple of sections) so if there is anything I can't answer (which is unlikely) then I can ask one of them no problem.
