Welcome to the Home page for the GlobeRiders 2013 Africa Adventure.
The 2013 Africa Adventure is our 5th iteration of this challenging journey in the land of "The Big Five". Riding 6,700 miles (10,720 kilometers) over 37 days, our tour participants will make a counter-clockwise loop from Cape Town to Cape Town, traveling through South Africa, Lesotho, Swaziland, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Namibia along the way. As is true for all GlobeRiders tours, our client/riders' bikes were shipped from our facility in Seattle, Washington, USA, by ocean freight, allowing each rider to pilot her or his personally-outfitted motorcycle for the duration of the tour.
Bikes & Panniers are loaded! Next stop,
Cape Town, South Africa.

Whenever you join a GlobeRiders Adventure you will soon learn that the preparations for the journey starts months ahead of the actual departure date. We have a special online Forum dedicated to the members of the ride and it is here the preparations begin. This is also a good place to get to know your fellow riders with whom you will be sharing the road for the next month or so.
If you are following our journey through the Live!Journal I hope you enjoy seeing our pictures and reading our stories. If you have any comments or questions to the group please let us know by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org
