رحلتي عبر افريقيا السودان وعدم توفر الوقود Cairo to Cape town sudan video

A Nubian village, beautifully painted homes in pastel, on the edge of the Nile. Looking forward to spending time here on the cycle down. Things to look forward to in Egypt. ❤️ #thisisafrica

The ferry crossing the Nile, has all sorts of passengers. We’ve made it to Egypt. In a few short days we will be in Cairo.

Meet, Elisha! He is driving our dinner truck through Egypt, Sudan, and Ethiopia! He’s got a great laugh, let’s see if you can make him giggle? 🤣

Had to stop en route for a coffee, in Amharic ‘buna,’ while in Northern Ethiopia. Delicious traditional roasted beans are used, and incense is burned to ward off any evil spirits. #thisisafrica

Skip forward a few days and we are now safely recovering in Addis Abeba. We were spoilt for dinner last night at the British Embassy by Bill and Louise. Amazing food, wonderful company - thank you so so much!! 🥘 ❤️ It was actually an incredible day, we met such a variety of people: ▪️ A Ghanaian working for health NGOs and aiming to run for MP in 2024. ▪️ An optometrist carrying out population research for visual impairment among schoolchildren in Ethiopia and working for various eye NGOs. ▪️ An American woman reestablishing a Deaf School in Addis who is also a Trump Supporter 😮 ▪️ A mad and wonderful guy running barefoot through Africa to spread love and understanding (not a Trump supporter!) ▪️ A Peace and Conflict advisor who has worked throughout Africa for DFID. To be honest we both quite liked our host Bill’s advice though - placate with HobNobs. 🍪 #rosecake #trump #hanger #hobnobs #running #elections #medicine #cairotocape #tandemafrica #evertoexcel #pioneerswithpurpose #discover #conserve #ses #ethiopia #bikepacking #biketouring #biketravel #bikewander #medicalstudent #travel #nature #inspiredtravels #wanderlust #mountains #africaadventure #ghana @sesexplore @uniofstandrews @therandagolf @saintssport @bradabrahamsoptometry @jdtandems @saddledrunk @kangarooselfstorage @theadventuremedic @worldextrememedicine @zerosixzero @ukforeignoffice @ukandethiopia @runforlove2018 @mcvitiesofficial

Selam - a small town in the middle of nowhere on a dirt road that is very much under construction. The basic hotel acted as our sick bay for three days. Merlin had fallen ill and combined with Alex’s weakness after a week of indescribable stomach issues, we made for a pretty ineffective tandem team. It is somewhat difficult to recover when fuelled primarily by firfir, a local dish made from mashed up enjera (a kind of fermented pancake), served with enjera. 🕸 Worried Merlin might have MALARIA, we used a self test kit, luckily his blood sample was fine. We carried on lying in bed, making the odd journey downstairs for some more firfir... 🤒 #bedridden #malaria #medicine #cairotocape #tandemafrica #evertoexcel #pioneerswithpurpose #discover #conserve #ses #ethiopia #bikepacking #biketouring #biketravel #bikewander #medstudent #travel #nature #inspiredtravels #wanderlust #mountains #africaadventure @sesexplore @uniofstandrews @therandagolf @saintssport @bradabrahamsoptometry @jdtandems @saddledrunk @kangarooselfstorage @theadventuremedic @worldextrememedicine @zerosixzeromap

One night in policeman’s office, the next night in teacher’s house. We gather huge crowds when we stop in towns but people have been really helpful and welcoming along this stretch. Such a relief to find safe and secure places to sleep at the end of the day. 🍾 Fermented GARLIC beer was a local delicacy we were treated to last night... let’s just say we won’t quite packing any on the bike with us. 🍸 #homebrew #police #teachme #education #cairotocape #tandemafrica #evertoexcel #pioneerswithpurpose #discover #conserve #ses #ethiopia #bikepacking #biketouring #biketravel #bikewander #travel #nature #inspiredtravels #wanderlust #mountains #africaadventure @sesexplore @uniofstandrews @therandagolf @saintssport @bradabrahamsoptometry @jdtandems @saddledrunk @kangarooselfstorage @theadventuremedic @zerosixzeromap

It’s been a hilly day of hairpin bends so we were pretty grateful when these kids who had been jogging alongside decided to help push us up the hill... we captured it on film but it wasn’t quite what we expected! 😮😞 Unfortunately for them we had already learnt our lesson having had some shorts and T-shirt go missing a few days ago so everything was zip tied down today. 💡 💪 #cairotocape #tandemafrica #evertoexcel #pioneerswithpurpose #discover #conserve #ses #ethiopia #bikepacking #biketouring #biketravel #bikewander #travel #africawildlife #nature #inspiredtravels #wanderlust #mountains #africaadventure #fresh #fruit #tropical @sesexplore @uniofstandrews @therandagolf @saintssport @bradabrahamsoptometry @jdtandems @saddledrunk @kangarooselfstorage @zerosixzeromap

We rolled into a small town to to find it occupied by the Ethiopian Army. Military trucks loaded with soldiers and mounted machine guns were about to lead a convoy of trucks, tankers and buses through the conflict zone. ▪️ Despite our short Amharic lesson the previous evening, it was difficult to explain that we would be too slow to join the convoy. Eventually the bike and ourselves were loaded into the lead vehicle, along with 11 soldiers. It was to be a hazardous journey so one soldier borrowed Alex’s bicycle helmet for protection. ▪️ The convoy tore through the peaceful landscape at breakneck speed, a stark contrast with the tranquility we had experienced so far in Ethiopia. Children herding cattle, and women carrying water jugs, were driven aside by the brutish string of vehicles. 🚛 We have been plucked from the magical lowlands and dropped safely in the city of Gondar, high in the Ethiopian mountains. 🏔 #bulletproofbikehelmet #convoy #cairotocape #tandemafrica #evertoexcel #pioneerswithpurpose #discover #conserve #ses #ethiopia #bikepacking #biketouring #biketravel #bikewander #travel #africawildlife #nature #inspiredtravels #wanderlust #mountains #highlands #africaadventure #tandem #tandembike @uniofstandrews @sesexplore @therandagolf @saintssport @bradabrahamsoptometry @jdtandems @saddledrunk @iapb @kangarooselfstorage @alpkit @arclightmedical

Where did the desert go? It’s been a quick transition to this green paradise. Delightful mountain streams have been tempting us to their cooling white water for a refreshing dip - we have yet to treat ourselves though. 🚲 The road is so quiet! We are in the middle of nowhere! 🇪🇹 However there are guns everywhere. All the men here are armed and patrolling the road in small groups. Some are posted at sentry points. They look very intimidating but return a friendly wave to our greetings. We stopped in a village and gleaned some more information - that the tribal conflict is ongoing and more intense up-ahead. As we stood talking, a heavily armed military truck passed us at high speed, transporting a convoy of vehicles. That explains the quiet road. The elder in the village says that we are safe from his ‘nation’ of people; with some hesitancy we continue on, planning to find out more from a convoy when one next passes. 🚲 🚲 #cairotocape #tandemafrica #evertoexcel #pioneerswithpurpose #discover #conserve #ses #ethiopia #bikepacking #biketouring #biketravel #bikewander #travel #africawildlife #nature #inspiredtravels #wanderlust #mountains #highlands #tandem #tandembike #africaadventure @sesexplore @uniofstandrews @therandagolf @gosaintssport @bradabrahamsoptometry @jdtandems @saddledrunk @iapb @kangarooselfstorage @alpkit @arclightmedical

It feels like we’ve gone through the rabbit hole and come out into an magical place straight from a children’s fairytale book! 🐇 🌞 👣 The landscape is barely untouched by human hands. The few people who live here dwell in small wooden houses with pointed roofs, driving their livestock beneath the huge escarpments that rise to the Ethiopian highlands! Colourful birds, stony brooks, and wild cotton amongst natural forest that only ends when the land becomes too steep. Our eyes soak in a fresh, awesome view every time we roll over a hilltop or mountain pass. ⛰ ⛰ 🚲 We had the warmest greeting to this wonderful country, invited by a family into their home for the evening. We were given a space in the house beside the chickens, and spent the evening learning Amharic phrases with a young girl and her English-Amharic dictionary. It was incredible to share such great company over a bowl of pasta, despite the almost complete language barrier. Still we all managed to make jokes and tell stories well after the sun had set. ✨ ✨ But in the night there was some automatic fire and the mother locked all the doors. It’s a reminder of the tribal conflict that is ongoing in this region. Hoping all is ok for our safe travel though this land. 😊 #cockadoodledoo #alarmclock #cairotocape #tandemafrica #evertoexcel #pioneerswithpurpose #discover #conserve #ses #camping #ethiopia #bikepacking #biketouring #biketravel #bikewander #travel #africawildlife #nature #pasta #inspiredtravels #wanderlust #mountains #highlands #magical @sesexplore @uniofstandrews @gosaintssport @bradabrahamsoptometry @jdtandems @saddledrunk @iapb @kangarooselfstorage @alpkit @arclightmedical

Leaving Khartoum visa-less for Ethiopia, still a bit frazzled from two frantic ‘rest’ days we pedal on to find a deteriorating road but to our delight the grass (literally) seems to be getting greener. .. Alex’s luck however hasn’t, accumulating a litany of woes: continued sunburn; a twice punctured sleeping mat; breathing difficulties from the noxious truck fumes; crippling shoulder pain; a cold; rather frequent toilet requirements; an infected pedal scrape; a cut finger; a crushed cockroach in his trousers and (speaking for both of us) a sore bottom. .. Alex’s curse seems at times to be playing out on both of us and I can’t help but blame him for the puncture, a tyre replacement and an unfortunate spillage of pasta too. Poor guy though, he’s had it a bit rough. .. Both feeling as worn out as these two chairs... .. #struggles #crymeariver #nile #cairotocape #puncture #bikewander #tandemafrica #heatison #sunburn #evertoexcel #pioneerswithpurpose #coffee #pasta #cocacola

Sunrise and sunset over the Jebel Barkal Pyramids in Sudan. Both of us loved stretching our legs up Barkal Mountain to get our first view over the Nile and desert. . Harking back to our Spain cycling days we have turned to milk to fulfil some of our nutritional needs. Towns are often sold out but twice we have managed to stop the refrigerated milk truck and purchase ‘direct’. We even sold some cartons on to a local shop for the astounding profit of 2 Sudanese pounds (GBP£0.03) #enterprising #makemymillions To be fair, we are starting to see some fresh food! . #milk #pyramids # #cairotocape #tandemafrica #evertoexcel #pioneerswithpurpose #food #sunrisesunset

BONKING / the BONK . Explained by Ride25: . “In the cycling world, a bonk is not a good thing. It essentially means ‘hitting a wall’ in a physical and emotional sense, meaning that you find it very difficult, if not impossible, to carry on.” . “As funny as it my sound, bonking is actually very serious and is what cyclists and other endurance sportspeople call hypoglycemia. Essentially it means that you haven’t taken in enough carbohydrates and have exhausted your body’s glycogen stores, leaving you with abnormally low blood glucose levels.” . “The symptoms of a bonk can vary, but on a physical side you will generally feel extremely weak and tired and you may shake, sweat a lot and feel dizzy or light-headed. You may also have heart palpitations and will probably be very hungry. Bonking can also affect the brain as that too burns glucose, and you may feel anxious, irritable, confused and emotional.” . Amen to that. . Fool, eggs and biscuits and this heat is not being kind to us.

Sorry for the lack of updates the past couple of weeks. The heat of Sudan was tough and we were pushing hard to make our 150km daily average to get to Gondar, Ethiopia in time for the next Arclight distribution. Some thoughts at the time: “There’s something awe-inspiring about this huge expanse of desert and extreme heat. Maybe there’s some satisfaction to be drawn from the fact that so far we are coping (just) and managing to move forwards in this austere environment. But fun? Probably not, hands down highlight of the past few days has been lying down to sleep each night: resting, taking a brief moment to appreciate the stars, stretching the legs out flat. Food each day has been 4 meals of ‘fool’ (a tasteless beany paste served with flatbread) complemented with snacks of dry biscuits. Can’t wait for fruit. The desert is quite mind-numbingly blank so we’ve invented a game of ‘spot something living’ - this current round has been going 30hrs now.” “Slight headwind is crushing us and our speed. Feels like a hairdryer on the eyeballs, the thermometer reached 50C today. Breathing dries your mouth and throat out - I’ve been trying to take 2 breaths through my nose for every 1 through my mouth; Alex is following Jonathon Lamont’s advice of sucking a pebble.” . A lot of this stretch could be considered Type 2 Fun - the kind of experience that sweetens only after its has ended and can be remembered from a safe distance. Looking back it really was amazing.

Sorry for the lack of updates the past couple of weeks. The heat of Sudan was tough and we were pushing hard to make our 150km daily average to get to Gondar, Ethiopia in time for the next Arclight distribution. Some thoughts at the time: “There’s something awe-inspiring about this huge expanse of desert and extreme heat. Maybe there’s some satisfaction to be drawn from the fact that so far we are coping (just) and managing to move forwards in this austere environment. But fun? Probably not, hands down highlight of the past few days has been lying down to sleep each night: resting, taking a brief moment to appreciate the stars, stretching the legs out flat. Food each day has been 4 meals of ‘fool’ (a tasteless beany paste served with flatbread) complemented with snacks of dry biscuits. Can’t wait for fruit. The desert is quite mind-numbingly blank so we’ve invented a game of ‘spot something living’ - this current round has been going 30hrs now.” “Slight headwind is crushing us and our speed. Feels like a hairdryer on the eyeballs, the thermometer reached 50C today. Breathing dries your mouth and throat out - I’ve been trying to take 2 breaths through my nose for every 1 through my mouth; Alex is following Jonathon Lamont’s advice of sucking a pebble.” .
A lot of this stretch could be considered Type 2 Fun - the kind of experience that sweetens only after its has ended and can be remembered from a safe distance. Looking back it really was amazing. The people who we did meet (stationed every 100km or so to maintain water pots and serve fool) were always encouraging and we enjoyed broken conversations using our growing Arabic vocabulary! The desert was so quiet, interrupted only occasionally by the hilariously melodic horn of a passing truck, but most of the time the road was entirely ours. Those who we did share this road with would often stop to ask us if we were ok, offering us bread, water and a ride if we wanted!

Travelling by bicycles, most of the time it leave us open to all kinds of opportunities but in rare places, it also leaves us vulnerable to evils. Ethiopia is such rare place. I agreed with all cyclists, bikers and hitchhikers before me, it really is a horrible place. Anyway, unusually long articles on my website to give you all the nitty gritty. http://theworldat8mph.com/index.php/2018/08/17/ethiopia-part-i/ http://theworldat8mph.com/index.php/2018/08/17/ethiopia-part-ii/ #bicycletouring #ethiopia #highlands #mountains #cycling #adventure #bikewander #travel #travelstory #badtimes #bicycle #cairotocape #surly #disctrucker

Many cyclists say Iran is the best country they have toured, I think that's only because most cyclists haven't been to Sudan. I love this country, read part 1 and 2 from my blog to see why. http://theworldat8mph.com/index.php/2018/08/02/sudan-part-i/ http://theworldat8mph.com/index.php/2018/08/05/sudan-part-ii/ #bicycletouring #africa #sudan #bicycle #adventure #cycling #nubian #sahara #desert #travelstory #travel #cairotocape

I didn't do much cycling last month, but was well looked after by the people around me. I got my bike to Cairo with the help of a few friends, old and new. I felt like the luckiest man in the world, so here is a self portrait from my first day back on the road in Africa! #bicycletouring #egypt #sahara #desert #selfportrait #happytraveller #cycling #cairotocape

417 days. 17 countries. 39,675km covered by land. 19 game drives. 652 dollars worth of visas. 1 night of diarrhoea. Far too many beers. Zero regrets. Deserts. Mountains. Forests. Savannah. Swamps. Deltas. Jungles. Lakes. Oceans. Volcanoes. Extreme heat. Torrential downpours. Snow. Gorillas. Chimpanzees. Sharks. Every other African animal you can think of except for wild dogs (seriously, f**k you wild dogs). I think Ernest Hemingway said it best..."All I wanted to do now was get back to Africa. We had not left it, yet, but when I would wake in the night I would lie, listening, homesick for it already." The blog posts will keep coming to complete the trip, hopefully at more regular intervals. Many thanks to all who kept in touch and for all the nice comments along the way. #cairotocape #africa #overland #travel #mapsme #backpacker #solottravel #itsnottheyearsitsthemileage

Today I have a good many things to be thankful for. For my loving family and fiancée. Good friends and food to eat. The freedom of heart, mind and body to explore all the world has to offer. Without the encouragement and kindness of people my trip would not be possible. The list goes on and on as I start my first day of riding in South #America. It is the first time in 15 months I feel as though I'm heading for home. As people back home come together for #Thanksgiving, it is a uniquely special opportunity to share all that we have. #Canada is a very fortunate place to live and I hope everyone realizes it. Today goes much further than #food on the table. The idea of Canada is everyone. Sharing our piece of the world with others from all over. At some point almost everyone in Canada came from somewhere else. They all came there for a different reason. They came because it is #free and #majestic in every way. Sometimes going away for a while makes you realize how amazing it truly is. When I return I feel like I'm a visitor seeing it for the first time, though everything remains familiar. Be proud as we celebrate this Thanksgiving Day, wherever in the world you may be. #Follow at www.oneadventureplease.com #adventure #cycling #Argentina #Africa #southamerica #aroundtheworld #inspiration #thankful #instagram #instatravel #camp4pix #campingcollective #MyFreedom #cyclingselfie #mountains #nature #cairotocape #wanderlust #love #family @bikingrepost @freethechildren

A year ago today I left my home in #Sanya, #China and began the long journey back to #Canada. Over the course of that year I have #cycled over 15,000KM, rode through 16 countries, raised over $22,000 for #charity and forever changed the way I see the #world. I went to places I never thought possible and met wonderful #people from all walks of life. I have been down in the most miserable of situations that cannot accurately be described and wanted to quit many times over. However, #good prevails. Countless factors keep me moving and my worn pedals turning. Like the generosity of complete strangers I meet who help with no expectation of reward. The countless souls who have given me a place to sleep, a meal to eat, water to drink and ear to listen. The #beautiful spinning world and all of the secrets it still hides. Support from young learners in Canada and adults alike, who have the same dream of building #schools for children. And last but not least, my wonderful girlfriend Eliza, my #family and my #friends for believing in me every step of the way. To all this last year has brought me and all that I will encounter in the following year, I say bring it on. The good, the bad and all that chaotic unknown that makes this worth every moment. From my first day in Country #16, #Tanzania. Follow your dreams, they just might come true.

Country #15 on my ride #aroundtheworld, #Kenya. The first few days have been a #challenge as I face the dubbed 'Road from Hell' on route to #Nairobi. After a tough time tarmac appeared and it has been uphill into a strong #headwind since. A #beautiful ride through the solitary Chalbi desert with baboons, groups of antelope and trains of camels. The hard part is over and more good things to come. #ilovekenya #nature #Africa #CairotoCape #cycling #biking #cycletour #travelogue #desert #roughroads #ifoundhighway #windy #hot #dusteverywhere #adventure #inspiration #morning www.oneadventureplease.com @cyclingshots @cyclist_nation @stravacycling
