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.

Limited spaces remain, don’t wait too long. See who is already signed up or register now.

I did 3 tours with tda, africa 2013, india 2014, north america 2016, some other “stuff” in between and recovering from a hip replacement last year.
as africa was my favourite one, west africa comes “like called for” and I am preparing for 2020. I will register early enough and this will most probably my last long distance ride outside australia, where I live.

I will enjoy preparing for it, reading as much as possible, making sure that I will be as fit as I was for all the other ones.

    Hey Volker,

    You are going to love this tour – it was my favourite so far !

    Good to her you had some spare (hip) parts installed for the trip too…;-)

    Tip: Use an Evoc hip hydration pack to keep the sweat off your back – it gets kinda hot out there.
