Bike The Longer Road follows hot on the heels of the hugely successful book BIKE: Tar & Gravel Adventures in South Africa in 2011, MapStudio now offers the sequel, BIKE: The Longer.

Whilst the first book focused on shorter trips in South Africa, The Longer Road details 8-10 day long journeys not only in South Africa but also in neighbouring countries – Namibia, Botswana, Zimbabwe and Mozambique.

Routes in this book includes:
• Route 1 – Cape Town to Windhoek
• Route 2 – Maun to Windhoek
• Route 3 – Maun to Harare via Victoria Falls
• Route 4 – Harare to Mbombela via Ilha de Moçambique
• Route 5 – Die Groot omTrek – round trip from eMkhondo

The Longer Road will take readers on an expedition through some of Southern Africa’s most scenic and picturesque spots including Sossusvlei, Victoria Falls, the Okavango Delta and the Cederberg wilderness area. Whether you want to explore one country at a time or five in one trip – there is a route available to meet every need.

Longer itineraries take bikers into unknown territory, therefore full map coverage of all the destinations have been included with the focus on adding as much detail as possible.

The Longer Road also includes information on bike-friendly accommodation and camp sites, historical monuments, mountain passes, national parks and even adventure activities in the specific regions. Another addition is an extensive gear list with in-depth reviews on bikes, tyres, camping gear, GPS systems, communication tools and luggage systems.
