I'm in Africa for about 2 weeks on business - Ghana, Kenya, South Africa - and wanted to get a bike ride in somewhere on the continent. I ran out of time in Ghana, was put off by the traffic in Kenya, but finally managed one today in South Africa. I joined a guided tour of Soweto by Soweto Bike Tours, which was terrific. The 4 hour tour was not so much of a bike ride as an up-close look of the township, but it was terrific.
