The 10to4 Mountain Bike Challenge has been held annually since 2002 when a small group of enthusiastic mountain bikers cycled from 10,000ft above sea level down Mount Kenya to Il Ngwezi at 4,000ft, and with it came the name – The 10to4. Now held over two consecutive days, routes are designed to challenge the most ardent mountain bike riders, while providing options suitable for everyone, including beginners and children. The 10to4 raises funds for the conservation projects of the Mount Kenya Trust including the reforestation of more than 2000 hectares of Mount Kenya’s National Reserve.

This race has become one of Kenya’s best and most widely publicized sporting events in support of conservation and will this year be held on February 14th and 15th, with all details available from the website:
