Ride East Africa is a thrilling mountain bike challenge through some of Africa’s most beguiling landscapes.

The 2019 challenge will take you across the sprawling lakes, green hills and smoking volcanoes of Rwanda. You will start at the capital of Kigali and finish cycling at Lake Kivu in Rubava. You will visit local villages and community projects on the way, and have the chance to witness Rwanda’s most spectacular resident – the mountain gorilla.
