Mountain Bike Festival

May 5, 2017 - May 7, 2017


Magic Mountainbiking

Only a 30-minute boatride away from busy Kampala lies a rather undiscovered area. A magical location without traffic, fumes and hustler’s hassle. This area offers some of Uganda’s best mountainbike trails both singletrack and wider dirtroads which will lead you through lovely villages and beautiful nature. At the heart of it lies Weaver’s Nest. A place where you can really relax and enjoy the beauty of Uganda. In the weekend from May 5th to 7th Weaver’s Nest forms the base for the pilot of Red Dirt’s Mountainbike Festival. A festival designed for the bikefreak and his/her family.


We will have scenic mountainbike rides for kids, beginners and advanced during the day and an exciting ride at night. You can also join one of our mountainbike skill training or compete on the obstacle course. Besides biking there are plenty of other activities that you or your family can participate in: boatrides, swimming pool, cano, bbq, adventure park, etc. Detailed information will follow soon.


Weaver’s Nest has two fully furnished houses with a great view available that each offers 10 sleeping places. Showers with hot water, fully equiped kitchens, a massive garden directly connected to Lake Victoria, a campfire location, a private jetty, a swimming pool and more are all at your disposal.


Accommodation for the whole weekend (2 nights) is USD60 per person. Additional costs vary per activity. For reservation or more information please contact thies.timmermans@gmail.com or 0772458796.

Hope to see all of you there!
