Mountain-biking is another hugely popular way of touring and exploring the country, and will get you home tanned and toned. Opportunities abound for all abilities and levels of fitness - whether it’s the low-level Laikipia Plateau or a rocky ride down from one of the snowy peaks of Mount Kenya.
under the guise of the ‘Rift Valley Adventures’ Mountain Bike Series, which next month stages the Laikipia 3D, Kenya’s only Mountain Bike Stage Race, mountain biking has suddenly come into its own in Kenya, attracting both amateur and professional racers, side by side and from all walks of life.
Up until about a year and a half ago, mountain biking in Kenya was not such an all-encompassing sport – in fact it was travelling along two disparate routes. Along one rocky route cycled a small clique of local Kenyans, using very cheap, very heavy bikes, and doing amazing things with them. One man - David Kinjah - is the motivation behind this local scene, and he nurtures new riders by training, feeding and housing them out of his own pocket. Many of the riders are from the lower echelons of society but they show natural, raw potential and the will to win. A classic example is Davidson Kamau, an abattoir worker who now rides competitively alongside Kinjah both locally and overseas.
David Kinjah - captain of the Kenya Cycling Team at the 2006 Commonwealth Games and annual competitor of the Cape Epic in South Africa - is all set to prove that with a little support Kenyan cyclists could be as famous as their marathon counterparts, but until recently he and members of his local club, the Safari Simbaz, were struggling to find affordable local challenges to enter.

Mountain biking in Kenya: a brief history

Under the guise of the ‘Rift Valley Adventures’ Mountain Bike Series, which next month stages the Laikipia 3D, Kenya’s only Mountain Bike Stage Race, mountain biking has suddenly come into its own in Kenya, attracting both amateur and professional racers, side by side and from all walks of life.

Visit the Rift Valley Adventures website for information on each of the remaining four races in the 2009 Series. The ‘Laikipia 3D Stage Race’, taking place on 12th – 14th June and promoted as the ‘ultimate ride’, is a 180km challenge through Northern Kenya’s stunning high country. RVA is making it a family affair by providing a package which includes accommodation at a community-run lodge, guided walks, swimming, canoeing and other great activities for those not riding.
