Perhaps the most adventurous section of West Africa en Vélo

The Fouta Djalon, starts in the city of Dakar – a city that utilizes its beachside property. Whether for sundowners at the bar or games of football on the sand, riders will find a unique way to spend their rest day. This section begins with a week of cycling past ancient baobabs and magnificent termite mounds. After crossing into Guinea, riders experience intense humid heat, rough jungle roads, and villages that rarely see Western cyclists. These challenges are rewarded with camps at the foot of enormous waterfalls, lazy rivers, and watching the sun set behind the stunning mountains of the Fouta Djalon.

The limited infrastructure of The Fouta Djalon foothills mean these remote jungle tracks cross rivers not by bridges, but by human-powered ferries. This stage ends with a spectacular small boat ferry ride across the Tagrin Bay and into the ethnically diverse city of Freetown, the Capital of Sierra Leone.
