Coconut Coast: Part 4 of our 4-Part Series on Cycling West Africa

“Look into the unknown to find something new.”

We are very excited to share with you the concluding episode of our four part video series – Cycling West Africa. Following the participants of the inaugural West Africa en Vélo cycling expedition in 2018, videography intern Esen Küçüktütüncü put together this collection – filming throughout the expedition and then spending months putting the finishing touches on this exciting project.

In this last installment the riders plunge deeper into West Africa, cycling from Freetown, Sierra Leone through Guinea and Cote d’Ivoire before ending this epic cycling journey in Cape Coast, Ghana.

Sierra Leone has a history rich with unique cultural traditions, pounding with drum beats and incredible stories of humanity from the civil war. The riders then enter Guinea for a short section of familiar jungle tracks with waterfalls and wild elephants, before traveling into Cote d’Ivoire. The final rest day is in the quirky capital city of Yamoussoukro which features the world’s largest basilica and a Presidential palace surrounded by man-eating crocodiles!

Then it is back to the coast. The last of many unique border crossings will take riders down a beach track lined with coconut palms and crisscrossed with gigantic fishing nets before leading them into the final country: Ghana.

>>Registration is now open for the Coconut Coast and all four sections of the 2020 West Africa en Vélo

A big thanks to our young filmmaker Esen Küçüktütüncü who spent three months in West Africa filming for this project. Esen can be reached through her website: esenka.co
