Former cycling world champion Hans Rey will lead a select group to Kenya in support of fundraising for conservation. The group will be attending the Bill Woodley Mt. Kenya Trust '10 to 4' mountain bike challenge down Mt. Kenya in February. The challenge will cover 56 kilometers through some of the most spectacular scenery in Africa. Beginning at the 10,000' level (the mountain is over 17,000' high), the participants will descend 6,000' to end in the bushland, home of the Masai people.
In addition to the race, the tour participants will visit the famous Mt. Kenya Safari Club, track elephants in Samburu, dine with world-famous conservationists, stay in luxury tented camps and lodges, and enjoy some of the best mountain biking on the continent. The race is being organized by Friends of Africa International, based in Colorado, and affiliated with The Bill Woodley Mt. Kenya Trust, Save the Elephants and the African Conservation Foundation. Travel arrangements are being made by Abercrombie & Kent travel, safari specialists.
