Solo Rider to Take on Africa in New TV Show set November 8th

africa bike adventure

Get the Sky plus ready for a new TV series following Motorcycle Explorer Spencer Conway as he heads around Africa riding through 34 countries, covering an amazing 34,000 miles solo and unsupported (not even taking the girl friend!), on a Yamaha XT660Z Ténéré.

We will find Spencer motoring his way down the UK to get the ferry off the little green gem and then across Europe for playtime to start in Tunisia. Spencer will be running down the east coast first to end up in the rainbow nation of South Africa.

Coming north will be a west coast drive into the more adventurous countries we know about. It's going to be interesting to see just what the real story is from a lone riders perspective. After more than a year on the road (when he can find any road) we can be sure there is going to be a take to tell and I for one relish the new blood to the TV screen.

I've not tried these myself! (James) but I do know a lot of female riders are looking at the site and at under £70 for textile pants they look a good deal. Oxford have always looked at putting out good quality gear at lower then normal costs and it looks like they've done it again. If any rider has used these then your feeback would be very welcome in the comments box on the main read.

1. Riding on the Roof of the World

The Pamir Highway is so named because the heart of it cuts through Tajikistan’s High Pamirs, the third highest yet least explored mountain range on earth. Not for nothing are the Pamirs known as the Bam-i-Dunya, the roof of the world: glistening snow-capped peaks tower at every turn and the road slings you through gorges of terrifying verticality and over passes of dizzying altitude. Such topographic extremes make for thrilling riding, jaw-dropping scenery and views to make you weep.
