Dear MOUNTAIN BIKE FRIENDS!
We are delighted to invite you back to our beloved mountain to take part in this unique mountain bike safari competition.
Taking place once again on the slopes of Mount Kenya and the beautiful Borana Conservancy, this is an amazing opportunity to enjoy the outdoors and fresh air, whilst supporting and raising valuable funds to protect the ‘water towers’ of Kenya.
On the 18 & 19th February 2022 will be the main races that have become a core part of the Tropic Air 10to4 event the EXTREME, CLASSIC, RUSH & SLIDE.
The MINI 10to4, supported by EastAfrican.com, will be held on Sunday 20th February and is the perfect opportunity for budding cyclists (under the age of 13 years old) to get involved too.
What to expect in 2022?
Once again, pre-event registration will be available for ALL EVENTS and is GREATLY encouraged, full details can be found on the Event Schedule (which is subject to change, so keep checking back!).
To speed up the registration process further, this year all Riders will be encouraged to complete and submit Waiver and Medical Forms online – more details on the website.
We will once again be offering camping at Borana Race Village, and the Bike Drop service will give your bike a lift to the Race Start Point ready for you to ride on Saturday morning.
The 10to4 MINI Mountain Bike Challenge will also be back at Borana for 2022.
We hope the 2022 event will be a return to the 10to4 format we all know and love, though obviously we’ll be following Government Covid-19 guidelines in whatever form they take at the time and closely monitoring the situation. For up-to-date information, keep an eye on the Covid-19 section on our Essential Info page which will be updated regularly.
We are also offering a Virtual Event again this year for all our international friends who cannot join us for the weekend. More information to follow.
Stay fit and well!
