Coconut Coast

23 Days Advanced / Challenging 1790 KmAVG 94 Km

This section begins in Freetown, the capital of Sierra Leone, and home to one of the world’s most vibrant music scenes. A 3 day ride brings the cyclists to a rest day at Tiwai Island located in a wildlife sanctuary on the Moa River. The route then crosses back into Guinea before heading east through a vast area of streams and forests. Keep an eye open for elephants. Riders now cross into Cote d’Ivoire and 4 days later pull into Yamoussoukro, the country’s capital and one of Africa’s strangest cities.

Created out of a small village in 1983, it features empty freeways, the world’s largest basilica and a presidential palace surrounded by man-eating crocodiles! After a day of sightseeing the riders will head through the lush countryside and friendly villages towards the beaches of the country’s southern coast. At the water’s edge, they will turn their wheels east and spin past endless coconut and palm trees towards Ghana and the end of this section in Cape Coast, once the largest slave-trading centre in West Africa.
