Section 2 starts tomorrow!

We’ve finished the first section of the tour, Pharaohs Delight, and are in Khartoum, having cycled nearly 2000 kms. The days are long and hot, with the distances often more than 148 kms per day. But at least the roads have been good – all paved and in good condition. Tomorrow we start section 2 – The Gorge. In a couple of days we’ll put our big tires on and cycle off road, then we go into the mountains of Ethiopia šŸ˜® which will no doubt be a true test of idiocy, oops I mean grit, determination, tenacity, and…….idiocy šŸ˜€

Let the fun begin! Next post – Gondar
