The route has involved four years of planning. The rough goal is to fly into Manchester on July 29th and do a clockwise loop of the Isle of Britain, take a ferry to France and bike through to Gibraltar. From southern Spain I will take a ferry to Morocco and bike along the west coast of Africa towards Cape Town. I will be keeping an eye on political situations and unrest and have no qualms about skipping regions for personal safety. I would like to get over to East Africa at some point and perhaps continue south from the East side. Whether I bike through Central Africa to get there or fly will depend on many variables.
