Riaan Manser – Circumnavigates Africa on Bicycle

Circumnavigation of Africa

Amazing. There is just no other word to describe what this man, Riaan Manser, did.

The first person to circumnavigate the ENTIRE AFRICAN CONTINENT by bicycle.

37 000 kilometres … 34 countries. For two years, two months and two weeks, Riaan Manser has been sitting on a bicycle circumnavigating Africa. – An African Bike

I’ve been eagerly reading his articles in our local newspaper, the District Mail.
His unique stories are what adventures are made of!

He kept a journal of his journey, and took photographs, which you can find on his website africa 365.

He records some beautiful and sometimes harrowing experiences on his journey through places we will never see in our lives.

I’m sure that 90% of the time, he wasn’t cycling idyllically on tarred roads.

What an amazing feat… can’t wait for the book.

“Without challenge there isn’t achievement”

One man, one bicycle, one continent.
A legend stands.

    Cool journey!

    Link’s broken, though — the one to africa365.

    It was supposed to be africa365.co.za not .com!
