Africyclette!!!

After a first long trip in Asia, we (me and my boyfriend) can't stand staying at home. So, let's go for another trip!
In september, we will discover Africa by bike from France to South Africa (or maybe more!)
I hope that we will meet a lot of people on the road and I want to share this wonderful experiment with the WS communauty and you!

Our website (at this time in french) : http://africyclette.wordpress.com/
The list of countries where we are thinking of going: France, Spain, Morocco, Mauritania, Senegal, Mali, Burkina-Faso, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Cameroun, Gabon, Congo, Angola (if we are lucky at the visa games!), Namibia, South Africa...and then? Let's see what will happen!

If you are on the same road,
If you want to meet us,
If you can host us,
If you have some contacts in Africa,
If you have some advices,
Or if you just want to support us,
Contact us!
With love
Alicia

my cycling philosophy

cycling is emotion.The desire of every human-being to proof him self.Its a battle ,a man to mam fight where suffering is synonymous with perseverance and passion.Therefore has a sweeter taste than honey.Cycling is especially battle against yourself.Against the element of nature ,the opponent circumstances and the own physical shortcoming.Cycling is mainly learning how to lose over and over again to face that battle.To become resurrected as a newborn man,knowing how to cross his boundaries

Africa

Bonjour! My girlfriend and I are about to start a journey exactly the same as you! From France to Morocco, and then if we are still having a good time we will continue to Ghana, and maybe further.

Would be great to meet up at some point, we are getting a ferry from England to Dieppe on the 25th or 26th of August, then heading down France via ( I think ) Le Mans, La Rouchelle, Bordeaux, Toulouse, then on to Barcelona.

Hope to hear from you.

Thanks, Zak and Alice
