I am finished riding a bicycle solo across Africa, sleeping in the wild and conquering some of my deepest fears but one year on, I have now reached the Pyramids of Egypt AMA
Last year I started cycling North of Cape Town in South Africa with a dream of cycling alone across the Continent. Since taking part in an AMA near the beginning of the trip (Dec 2013) - I since have cycled 12,000km from Cape Town to Cairo, Egypt entirely unsupported.
I slept mostly in a tent with all my supplies to survive on the bicycle and covered 11 Countries, many deserts, wildlife corridors and very isolated wilderness areas.
With no cycling experience prior to this trip and no training, the extremity of weather, isolation, physicality and risks involved contributed to the greatest experience I could have ever imagined.
In December 2013 I took part in an AMA which received much criticism and predictions for the dangers and bad that might happen on the rest of the trip;
Now that I‘ve cycled the length of Africa, please AMA

Thanks a lot for an amazingly fun time doing this AMA guys. Genuinely the experience of meeting Africa on a bicycle has changed my life and so much that I only hope those who read the site will be pushed toward following their own goal or dream. My life was in a bad place last year but honestly, I return home in a few weeks a changed man - its all thanks to other people, people who offered up amazing encouragement like that has been seen throughout this AMA. Thank you - please give the page a like to see the next adventure ;) www.facebook.com/nohanginground Derek
