West Africa en Vélo: The Countdown Begins
Three hundred and ten days. Three hundred and ten sleeps until the highly anticipated West Africa en Vélo Cycling Expedition pulls out of Casablanca and heads south through Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal, Guinea, Sierra Leone, Cote d’Ivoire & Ghana. You can start the countdown today because this cycling adventure is now a ‘Guaranteed Departure‘.
Long discussed by both TDA staff and alumni, this route promises to take riders back to TDA Global Cycling’s roots. Back to a time when the idea of cycling across Africa was seen as ‘crazy’, ‘insane’, ‘dangerous’ and ‘irresponsible’. Of course, we all know how that story ends – next month another group of riders will join the hundreds of others that have ridden the now legendary Tour d’Afrique from Cairo to Cape Town over the past 16 years.
We are excited to share this experience with all our cyclists, new and old alike, and feel confident that West Africa en Vélo will join the Tour d’Afrique as one of the world’s great adventures.
