African Bicycle Odyssey

Chris Pederson and Danny Stitt are about to begin a bicycle tour of Africa. They will be taking the eastern route from Kampala through Tanzania and Mozambique. Their final destination will be Cape Town, South Africa, arriving in April of 2009. Their pace will be a “leisurely” 60 to 70 miles per day with 2 days of rest after 5 days of riding.

Wish I could share a couple of days with them.
