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.

Sunday Morning Ride

Wanna experiece the red dirt of Uganda on a mountainbike? You always wanted to do some mountainbiking, but you’re not sure how to start? Is your fitness not yet at the level it should be?

Then this is THE opportunity for you. Twice a month Red Dirt will organize a fun ride on Sunday morning. The rides will be at an easy pace, not too long (25-35km) and most important of all: great fun!

On October 30th we’ll start from Kabira Country Club at 9am. You can park your car there for free. Our aim is to be back before noon for a good cup of coffee. Make sure to bring water, food/snacks, suncream, a helmet and your bike and some money for coffee or drinks. If you don’t have a bike you can also hire one (comes with a helmet) for 65k, but let us know before the end of Friday.

Money? No money! This activity is free of charge!

PS: Kampala Group of Bikers (KGB) is doing short and longer rides every Sunday. The Red Dirt Sunday ride will be part of their usual riding scheme, but always focussed on beginners.
