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".

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.
Please write if you have questions, comment, criticism, praise or
additional information for us, to report bad links, or if you would like to be
