[An introduction and overview to travel in Africa is available by clicking here.  If you are look for a bicycle tour to this country, this link might help you.]

The information below may have been extracted from a more comprehensive "Country Supplement" to the book "Bicycling In Africa".  For information on these publications click on the links.

Instability has been the primary characteristic of Liberia during the 1990s. In calmer times it is a beautiful lush country dominated by "village life". You can create a couple of loops within the country and get a sense of the culture. The coast tends to be flat or rolling and the interior tends to be more hilly. There are two routes from  Liberia to Sierra Leone; The one near Robertsport, on the coast takes you to Joru and then Kenema. The one in the interior near Foya takes you northwest to Kenema and passes through a region known for its agriculture, crafts and beauty, . There are a number of routes to Guinea. The main routes to Ivory Coast are near Sanniquellie, passing to Bo and near Harper, on the southeast coast.  As peace returns to Liberia we will update this page.

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.
