Riders start the section in one of the most diverse cities in West Africa

Freetown, the capital city of Sierra Leone, has a history rich with unique cultural traditions, pounding with drum beats and incredible stories of humanity from the civil war. Three days pedal out of Freetown is the vibrant wildlife sanctuary of Tiwai Island. Riders will cross back into Guinea for a short section of familiar jungle tracks with waterfalls and wild elephants, before traveling into the penultimate country, Cote d’Ivoire.

The final rest day in is the capital city of Yamoussoukro, an eccentric city comprised of empty freeways, the world’s largest basilica, and a Presidential palace surrounded by man-eating crocodiles! After exploring this memorable city, riders turn back towards the thick jungle highways leading to the coast. The last of many unique border crossings will take riders down a beach track lined with coconut palms, crisscrossing gigantic fishing nets and into the final country: Ghana. After camping on the beach with the Atlantic Ocean lapping at their tents, riders take their final pedal strokes at the water’s edge, spinning into Cape Coast, a small city with a big history as the largest slave-trading center in West Africa.
