. 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
