“Far Out”: 2018 West Africa en Vélo Riders Look Back On Their Journey

An incredible experience: challenging riding, fascinating cultures, tough conditions, brutal heat and humidity, and great company! I’m a fairly intrepid traveller, but I would never have tackled West Africa on my own, and the staff and fellow riders made it so enjoyable.” – Joseph Lee (Canada)

I loved this tour very, very much. I was the oldest woman of the group as well as the weakest cyclist – I was aware of this before I left and it made me somewhat uneasy. But I never once got the feeling that I was a burden to the staff.” – Huberte Langteine (Canada)

Phenomenal trip, the memories will last a lifetime. There were some tough moments but most days it felt like a real privilege to be there on my bike.” – Kevin McAleer (Canada)

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)
