new one

Hi guys!

I am a new one in your bike community. I study Applied Environmental Sciences in Trier, Germany and emphasize on Water Management. I have just come from a 2 month volunteering work in Kenya. That's way I suffer from the African Fever and think about doing a bike ride to Uganda-Kenya this summer. Perhaps you have some experience and could give me some country information. I have never done a solo bike trip before.

See you

WELCOME to the forums. You are contemplating an exciting ride. Whether or not you should do it alone depends on you. If you are resourceful, self-confident and really have a burning desire to do so, then there is no reason not to.
You have some experience of being there --Did you feel safe? There are other women, on the forums, planning first time solo trips. Perhaps you have seen some of their posts?

It is a great adventure you want to undertake. My advice is GO FOR IT. The fears we imagine, rarely come true in reality. I hope you'll have a wonderful time and keep us all posted about your whereabouts and what you are doing. Good Luck!
