Africa is big. One billion people and nearly twelve million square miles. That’s Texas times 43. From South Africa we will pedal northward through eleven nations, cycling past bustling towns, crossing great deserts, via the burgeoning cities of Lusaka, Kigoma, Kigali, Kampala, Kisumu and Nairobi, down the Great Rift Valley, next to lions and elephants and up to Addis Ababa on the Ethiopian highlands. For four months we will ride.
