I love Rwanda, and I can't wait to start taking Slow Cyclists there next year, off-road all the way from Kigali to the border with Congo. I love to wax lyrical about the country's appeal as a cycling destination; its stunning scenery, rolling hills and inspirational cycling team.
Yes. Rwanda has a cycling team and it turns out they're pretty damn good. Towards the end of our tours of Rwanda we even offer our guests the chance to meet and have dinner with some of the riders who are working hard to make it to Rio in 2016.
Team Africa Rising, formerly Team Rwanda, was founded with the aim of unifying African countries through the sport of cycling. To see the team in action and to further whet your appetite for riding in beautiful country, check out this trailer for the incredible film Rising From the Ashes.
If you would like to come to Rwanda with us in 2016, drop us an email and we'll be in touch. We're launching the trips before Christmas.
