This challenge requires a good level of fitness. We will be hiking through the mountains for sustained periods of time; therefore strong, conditioned legs make the up and downhill stretches easier. Your body needs to get used to walking for long periods of time on consecutive days and endurance training will help prepare for this. To prepare for the cycling days along the rural African roads, endurance training is a must and can be accomplished by doing weekly long rides building up to 75% of your target distance. Once your aerobic fitness improves you will build up your ‘muscle memory’, ultimately preparing you for the challenge.
