    I sailed through the Suez Canal once. That is as close as I came to being on Egyptian soil. I would love to get there and ride someday but I don't think it would be anytime soon.

    From what ive heard, in Cairo you breathe heavy smog everywhere.

    The first rule of flats is You don't talk about flats!

    Alex

    I lived in Alex from 2001 to 2004 and rode, mostly on Friday. Used to go out to Rashid and back. Sometimes rode from Sidi Abdel Rahman either east or west, and did a few rides on the Sinai with the Cairo Cycling Club. Never saw many cyclists in Alex, the most we ever had for a ride was 4. Glad to see you are keeping the sport going.....

    hi

    hi five
    i live in cairo and i use my road bike to go to work
    i think that th heavy smog is a cool thing if you have no other option
    you see if you ride your bike or you r inside your airconditioned car you will inhale it anyway :]

    cycle in Egypt

    Try the Cairo Cycling Club. Meet on Fridays at 6 a.m. at the American School in Maadi - that was the schedule when I was there last. Mostly road bikes.

    BikeCape2Cape coming through Egypt

    I am biking from North Cape, Norway to Cape Agulhas, South Africa together with two friends. We will probably bike into Egypt by the end of February. If anyone has any good tips about biking in Egypt, please PM me, or contact us at www.bikecape2cape.com. We are especially worried about the roads South in the country..

    hi man egypt is cool and most of the roads are safe day and night
    egyptions are so welcoming and a tourist with a bike is a movie star
    the roads conditions r not bad but there is no special track for bikes and must be so carful at the turns and crossroads
    the south is called upper egypt so if you take it from south to north you wont need to paddle much
    and if you want to take it from delta to upper egypt you need to be a superman
    bike stealing is very good business there but egyption thefts rarly go violent so keep your bike in a safe place and lock it every time
    do not bike in cairo its very high polluted hawever you will not die crossing it

    cover your head and if you the face from the sun
