Day 4: Mole National Park – Bolgatanga (322 Km, Km 1020)

Here you can see the road from the National Park to the main road. It was a constant search for the best line. As little bumps as possible or the side road with no bumps but soft sand (difficult to ride).

My first shock. My chain sounded strange. So I tried to tighten it in the middle of nowhere. I got help but realized that a part was missing…

The next village under a beautiful tree – a bike mechanic!

Everything can be improvised, also my missing part – TIA (This is Africa)

A simple gas station…

I also had to improvise the sole of my Accra-second-hand-market-shoes…

But this very friendly man in the next bigger town took proper care.

A long day with difficult riding and fixing…
