WE ARE ALL AMATEUR CYCLISTS
WE WELCOME ALL FITNESS LEVELS
Only 1 in every 5 voyagers is an actual cyclist, the rest are all new to cycling. So don't let your fitness level discourage you, and let us do the assessment when we meet you.
IT'S ACTUALLY A LOT EASIER THAN YOU THINK
Completing this challenge with us is a lot different than training on your own; we are more driven by the destination and by the spirit of our Voyagers' pack. We don't just hit the road and cycle to death, we eat, we chill, we enjoy a full day on the road - no rush, we will reach the destination.
OF THE ROAD
SAFETY IS NO JOKE
POLICE ESCORT & PERMITS
Egypt is one of the safest countries when it comes to road safety, the traffic is controllable, the drivers are friendly & cooperative, and most importantly the police comes for the escort whenever it's needed.
We get the support needed depending on the group size, the traffic on the road, the time of the day - all the routes we use are tourists friendly - so you will always feel safe.
THE NS CROSSING INTELLIGENCE
We have all the know-how and equipment needed to guarantee a safe expedition - we keep one extra lane completely cleared as an extra safety buffer. We also have the latest communication equipment to ensure we are always connected.
