We made it to Newcastle!
he past two days were chilly but sunny. We did quite some miles over lots of hills through lovely, snowcovered countryside. Last night, we reached the border to England in pitch dark, exhausted. A former hostel, that had silently turned into a "4 star inn" finally saved us from icy roads. Another 45 hilly miles today took us into Newcastle. 4-lane main roads are signposted bicycle paths here! Riding A696 into town was pretty crazy even on a sunday. Looking forward to seeing some more of the city tomorrow. Learn more about E-Bike Africa in our tour and projects section
