The Belgian man revealed that he had embarked on his journey from Belgium in March with the goal of reaching Ghana by bicycle.
“I decided in March, and I left for the journey with my bike and cycled to France, Spain, Morrocco, Mauritania, Senegal, Gambia, all the way to Ghana. I spent one month in Dakar resting”.
