Mountain Biking through some of the most scenic places in Southern Africa, this has to be one of the most exciting events you can do, testing your skills against the terrain and keeping your senses sharpened for any encounters with the local wildlife!
This event comprises a combination of single track, rural roads and a small amount of tar (near town). Note that most of these areas are not generally accessible to the public and as such are unique to this event, which is fully backed up and marshalled.
Whilst the Victoria Falls Mountain Bike race is a challenge for the fast, competitive riders, it is also a great event for social riders. There are well spaced refreshment points along the way, good marshalling, sweep bikes and cars, as well as some spectacular, un-ridden sections will allow riders some great views of one of Zimbabwe's most scenic areas.
This tough 3-day event is going into its fifth year and is operated by the same organisers as the Victoria Falls Marathon and the Kilimanjaro Marathon Travel Packages - Vic falls Moutain Bike Booking for the race, lodgings / transfers etc over the weekend.
