Ride East Africa is a once-in-a-lifetime, guided and fully-supported 800 kilometre charity cycle challenge along Africa’s iconic red dirt roads from the plains surrounding Mt. Kilimanjaro to the volcanoes that separate Rwanda from the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). It is an opportunity to see and truly experience some of Africa’s most magnificent landscapes and meet some of its wonderful people.


Our Guides in Tanzania

Leading the ride is Oli Broom, founder of The Slow Cyclist, and John Douglas the Director of Charity (Adventure) Links. Oli recently spent two years living and working in Kigali, Rwanda’s vibrant capital while John led KiliRide2015  the first UK charity cycle circumnavigation of the base of Africa’s highest mountain.

Oli and John will be joined in both Tanzania and Rwanda by a fantastic team of local guides, cooks and drivers, all with their own skills and interests that are bound to leave a lasting impression long after you have conquered Ride East Africa.


Route varies from Tricky to Smooth

Participants are encouraged to take on the entire challenge, or alternatively choose between riding either the Tanzania or Rwanda leg only.


The main African Ride starts in Moshi Tanzania on Saturday 18th November.
