Mountain Bike Fort Portal to Kisoro

Red Dirt Uganda Mountainbike Centre has set a date for their next multiday mountainbike adventure in Uganda. It’s gonna be awesom!

The trip through West-Uganda will be the most unique and beautiful nature and wildlife mountainbike trip you will ever make. We’ll cycle past breath-taking lakes and through the jungle of one of world’s only habitats of mountain gorilla’s, followed by a thrilling safari ride on your iron horse through one of Uganda’s national parks to see lions, buffalo’s, elephants and much more. Experience local culture by riding through beautiful African villages and meeting its friendly inhabitants, while slaloming between magical crates lakes with a backdrop of Uganda’s massive mountains: the Rwenzoris. Too much to mention!

But be aware, you’ll have to work for it! We’ll cycle from Fort Portal to Kisoro and will cover around 300km with quite some elevation metres. This is not for the fainthearted, but very much do-able if you have a adequate fitness level.

The trip comes with basic accommodation, breakfast, lunch, supper, snacks and water during cycling, transport from/to Kampala and during the trip, guiding vehicle with mechanic who will clean your bikes daily and a fluent english speaking guide.

Participation in this tour is based on open enrollment. Anyone can join. For more information send a PM or call/whatsapp to 0772458796

Mt. Elgon Mountain Bike Race

It’s time to prove your skills at the yearly Mount Elgon Mountainbike Race 2016!!!

Main race is a 33km XC/Enduro style course – it’s a mass start and the first across the finish line wins. From Sipi we climb into Mt. Elgon National Park before descending singletrack through coffee planations and villages. There’s 1000m climbing and 2100m max elevation over two off road loops connected by a little tarmac. Course record 2hr 25min.

Half race: The half race misses the first loop up to the National Park and is easier with less climbing and a lower max elevation. Course record 1hr 21min.

Trained or not… There are a lot of activities for those who don’t want to participate in the race, such as troutfishing in very lush surroundings, climbing, hiking the waterfalls , coffee trips just to mention some…

This year there is an accommodation and food pack for $50 pp. It includes 2 nights camping at Noah’s Ark (across the road from Sipi River Lodge) with 2 breakfasts, one lunch at Sipi River Lodge and a BBQ on the Saturday night.
