The Trans Afrika
The Trans Afrika is an unsupported Adventure Bicycle Race from Beitbridge to Cape Town South Africa.
Riders are autonomous and not bound to one fixed route; they must only visit the mandatory checkpoints below. Riders must not use the N1 N2 N3 and N4 during the race.
There is no minimum kit list; the rules only serve to prohibit outside assistance and provide a level playing field.
Resupply is permitted at commercially available services only.
Watch our Trans Afrika Bike Race 2015 video below. From Beit Bridge to Cape Town, covering 2800 kms, this is the toughest cycling in Afrika
