For many, many years our alumni would eagerly ask us, “When will you announce a West African Cycling Expedition?” And for many, many years, while adding new tours in Europe, Asia, North & South America and Oceania, we always had in the back of our minds the dream of cycling West Africa. Finally, in February of 2017, we were able to fulfill both our dream and those of our loyal alumni, revealing the West Africa en Vélo. The response was overwhelming and the tour sold out quickly.


West Africa en Vélo

Join us on this unique cycling expedition to explore West Africa from Casablanca to Cape Coast. Clocking in at just over 2 months and 6,300 km, riders...

Fast forward to December, 2018. Over 40 tired but happy cyclists roll into Cape Coast, Ghana bringing the first West Africa en Vélo to a successful conclusion. Here is what some of them said about their experience:

Experiencing the countryside and culture of West Africa was everything I’d hoped it would be, and the Tour gave us the freedom to do so in our own way, while providing excellent support and logistics. Most of all, being part of an extraordinary group of people facing extraordinary challenges was an experience that we have too rarely in life. Very glad I did this ride.” – Mateo Burtch (USA)

Overall a great experience made possible by the hard work and dedication of a fantastic crew, and an amazing group of riders.” – Steve Winter (UK)

An incredible experience that I am still trying to describe. I look at the photos and I am in awe of what we have experienced.” – David Jones (Canada)

Looks great. Is this only a “winter” ride?

I’m a bike tour operator and am very interested in this tour. Will call.
