Rwanda Bike

Join this 220km journey on dirt roads through some of Africa’s most awe-inspiring scenery, from Rwanda’s capital to one of the continent’s great lakes on its northern border with the Democratic Republic of Congo. We will ride towards the mountainous north of the country through tea plantations, lush green hills and along the Virunga Mountains – a chain of volcanoes that are home to some of the world’s last remaining mountain gorillas; all the way to the border with the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). Nicknamed the ‘Land of a Thousand Hills,’ Rwanda doesn’t do ‘flat’ meaning this challenge will offer not only incredible views around every corner but a serious test of fitness and endurance with daily climbs in excess of 1000 metres.

Best time of year: All year round (apart from April)

Grade: Tough

Number of days: 7 or 8
