Join us on a 10-day
circumnavigation of Mount
mountain bikes, designed as an encounter
with the people, the environment and the
wildlife of this famous mountain. This
trip is for active people who are
comfortable exploring new cultures and
environments. While not an extreme physical
adventure, participation on the trip does
require that you be physically fit,
culturally adaptable and have some current
experience riding a mountain bike off-road.
On this trip, we will cover about 20 miles
per day on our bikes, in order to complete a
100 mile circumnavigation of the mountain in
about 5 days of riding.
On the trip, we will
be supported by a full camp crew and two
dedicated support vehicles with on-board
radio communication. Riders will be in
regular radio contact with the support
vehicles, one of which will follow behind.
Those that wish to take an occasional break
from riding will have the option of riding
in the support vehicles.
