Video From My Bike Tour Across South Africa

By Darren Alff on - Download my FREE bike tour starter guide!

In 2013, I spent 3 whole months cycling across South Africa, Lesotho and Swaziland. I created a video about the two-week-long mountain bike tour I participated in while I was there, but I shot some additional footage during my self-supported bicycle tour across these three countries, and I never did anything with that footage… until now. Watch the video above and you’ll get an idea of what it’s like to bike tour across South Africa.

    Hey Darrin,
    I just became a big fan of touring and found your videos on the net, thank you so much for all the work you put into this sport. I have been watching all I can on bicycle touring recently, my main question is, when I see people touring and the they start hiking or walking around a foreign city how do the lock up their panniers, I don’t see them carrying them in their videos, I never like to leave anything out of my site, what is the best advice for this? Thank you I look forward to hearing your comment!
