Velo Afrique, Uganda 2022

August 2022. I got a call from longtime friend Jeroen Leen. Jeroen has been the driving force behind Velo Afrique. Due to the nature of Velo Afrique’s activities, COVID-19 also made it impossible for them to continue operations, just like so many other companies worldwide. But the light at the end of the tunnel is in sight. The first post-COVID trip is scheduled for October 2022; he needs a photographer to document it.

I’m always up for an adventure. So …

October 2022. We’re all vaccinated and have all the paperwork to head for Uganda. I get in touch with some fellow all/offroad motorcycle adventurers to rent an offroad motorcycle so that I can follow the mountain bike team individually from the assistance crew. And, off we go.
