One of the best-kept secrets on Africa’s adventure tourism calendar is the 10 to 4 Mt Kenya mountain Bike Challenge which raises money for the Mount Kenya Trust. Held annually since 2002, it is the major fundraiser for the Mount Kenya Trust conservation NGO which has since raised over $500,000 and has thus contributed to planting more than half a million trees, building and maintaining a 14km elephant corridor through farmland, returning over 450 hectares of bare land to indigenous forest and helped 50,000 Kenyans with health care.
Last year, under the radar, Vicky took part in what only can be described as the ultimate bike safari. Not only did she take part but she also won her race, the first female to finish the classic race – quite an achievement!
This year we sponsored four local boys and girls from Nanyuki – the ‘NANYUKI Mambas’.
And more success came – this years ‘Queen of the Mountain’ was Joyce who was the overall female winner over the 2 day race and David and Joseph finished 8th and 9th in the mens race and Asmin 4th in the Rush – a brilliant achievement all round!
