The Trip-Finder, January 1998
The Route: Self-supported mountain-biking across the shoulders of 13,541-foot Mount Cameroon and the Bamileke Highlands. Trip lasts 15 days.
When to go: November to December
Difficulty: Moderate to strenuous
Travel advisory: This trip is more demanding than a cursory glance at the itinerary might suggest; it's quite difficult to ride up to 48 miles per day on a fat-tired bike with 20- to 25-pound panniers.
