Ride Rwanda

In 3 Words Journey to Congo

9 Days Mod-Advanced

You are invited to join Hope & Homes for Children on a thrilling mountain bike challenge through some of Africa’s most beguiling landscapes. From Rwanda’s fascinating capital Kigali, ride 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 - to the northern 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 1,000 metres. Your challenge host will be Founder and MD of The Slow Cyclist Oli Broom, who recently spent two years living and working in Rwanda. You will also be supported by an experienced local team of cyclists, guides, cooks and drivers. Travelling almost exclusively on dirt roads and tracks, during four days in the saddle we will experience a remote, rural Rwanda few visitors are lucky enough to see. This epic challenge will come to an end a couple of miles from the Congolese border, in the Rwandan frontier town of Rubavu on the shores of one of Africa’s Great Lakes, Lake Kivu.
