General Information
by David Mozer

Due to media reports on problem spots in Africa, perhaps you are a bit hesitant to tour -- let alone bike tour -- in Africa. Often there are more myths and misinformation than facts about Africa.  These myths are reinforced by a linguistic bias in English. We would like to ease your mind some.  While Africa is not without its problems and travel anywhere has risks to be aware of, if you are selective about where and when you travel or tour there are great rewards to traveling, especially bicycle touring, in Africa. The headline coverage of Africa misrepresents how safe, serene and welcoming the continent as a whole has been and continues to be to travelers and tourists.

The information provided here is extracted from the International Bicycle Fund's "Bicycling In Africa" and "Bicycling In Africa Country Supplements". 

For more information on the countries presented in this guide see:

Bicycling In Africa: A highly praised, comprehensive how-to book for bicycle touring in Africa or any place else.

Bicycling In Africa Country Supplements: Detail country-by-country supplements to "Bicycling In Africa" covering cycling seasons, routes, getting maps and spare parts, accommodations in rural areas and special comments for cycling in the respective countries.

Bibliography for Africa: Delve into the literature, culture, history, philosophy and science of Africa.

The International Bicycle Fund is an independent, non-profit organization. Its primary purpose is to promote bicycle transportation. Most IBF projects and activities fall into one of  four categories: planning and engineering, safety education, economic development assistance and promoting international understanding. IBF's objective is to create a sustainable, people-friendly environment by creating opportunities of the highest practicable quality for bicycle transportation. IBF is funded by private donation. Contributions are always welcome and are U.S. tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
