The Big Five Cycling Ride Mabira Forest

The Big Five Cycling Ride Mabira Forest

On Saturday 26th of September, the fourth event of our series The Big Five will take place. This time we will ride from our capital Kampala to Mabira Forest. We will start at 8 am.
THE TRAIL
We will ride mostly on unpaved trails and there will be some technical sections and some hills to be cleared.
EASY RIDE
It’s possible to do an easier version of the original ride. This route will be shorter and contains less climbs.
GUIDING
We provide experienced guides who will lead the way. If you join a guided group the pace will be set by the guide and the group will stay together. Alternatively, you can also ride by yourself using a GPS unit. GPS tracks can be provided 2 days before the start of the event upon request.
INCLUDED SERVICES
Water and snacks will be provided by our support vehicle at rest points. Basic bicycle maintenance support and a medical kit is also available there. For cyclists who can’t or don’t want to continue anymore, these rest points offer a bail-out option. Cyclists can make use of the support vehicle and have themselves and their bikes transported to the endpoint for free.
OPTIONAL SERVICES
For an additional fee, it is possible to rent a bike and helmet. Need transport for you and/or your bike back to Kampala? We can help you. However, space is limited. Oh and don’t forget to check out our awesome T-shirts!
FOOD AND/OR ACCOMMODATION
We will partner with a guesthouse lodge to support us with lunch and accommodation.
FAMILY & KIDS
The Big Five events are ideal for a day out with your whole family. Let them spend a lovely relaxing day at the final destination of our ride while waiting for you to arrive. Or better, enjoy some quality time by staying the night over.
