African Spokes 1000 mile Cycling Journey in Africa

African Spokes 2018 was a 70 day journey spanning Nairobi Kenya to Cape Town with riders jumping in for one of the seven legs, riding a few or in some cases riding the full 6520 miles. Riders were tested in every way, climbing mountains in the Masai Steppes, crossing deserts in Botswana, and Namibia itself was one large sand dune. Road quality varied from moderately potholed to bike push territory. But the satisfaction after a day or riding, whether it was 30 miles in sand or 100 on a solid road, past elephants, ox carts, villages and the beautiful wild spaces of Africa to set up camp in the bush and fall into sleep with the sunset was unsurpassed in true awesomeness.
