The Road to Mali started long before the African adventures themselves.
This is not just an absorbing narrative about a single trip into North Africa. It outlines a series of events and circumstances between 1991 and 2005 which combined to lead three riders to an isolated road junction in Mali, in the middle of a baking hot baobab forest. One of those did not survive the journey.
It’s the story of the exhilarating world of motorcycle politics in the 1990s, of two separate yet intertwined adventures into West Africa, and of a Round The World ride that ended in tragedy, yet which inspired hope, and improved the health of thousands in developing countries.
