Leave the rain behind and set off on a unique ten day African adventure!
Cycle across lush highlands and vast open savannas and descend into the spectacular Rift Valley on this unmissable cycle challenge which includes a trip to one of our projects where you can see the difference your support makes.
Departing from London on 26th November 2012 we'll be cycling 400km from the foot of Mount Kenya to the shores of Lake Victoria- riding across the equator along the way!
* The chance to see Zebras, Giraffes, Elephants, Antelopes and more in their natural habitat
* Pass through some of the last remaining rainforest in East Africa and meet friendly local communities
* Feel like a superhero as we complete the ascent of the Elgayo Escarpment!
This incredible challenge is suitable for both experienced cyclists and those of average fitness (with training!) and everyone is welcome from individuals to teams of friends, colleagues or clients!
Computer Aid will be there every step of the way to support you in your fundraising and training and the trip includes everything from flights and hotels to bike hire and full back up from an experienced and ATOL accredited tour company.
