The Kintu Trial is a brand-new 5-day bucket list event that takes place in the stunning nature of Western Uganda. Breathtaking panoramic views are alternated with eye-catching natural elements and you can certainly expect encounters with wild animals. All of this is drenched in African red dirt.
The Kintu Trial is a challenge specifically designed for the die-hard off-road cyclist. Participants will ride a total of almost 500KM with an average of 1800 altimeters per day. The routes are 99% off-road with every day as much singletrack as possible to push every participant to the limit. Each edition will have a different route and the event will therefore never be the same.
Because of the diversity of Ugandan nature, every cycling day is a gem in itself. With the dense tropical rainforests of Bwindi to the vast savannas in Queen Elizabeth NP, the hilly tea plantations around Fort Portal and the steep climbs at the foot of the Rwenzoris, Uganda has a lot to offer.
Discover the best that Uganda has to offer and spend the night at wonderful lodges each situated on a superb location. Extend your challenge with a couple of days gorilla trekking, drive safaris to spot the big five in one of the many National Parks or a thrilling adventure on the Nile river.
