2023 TROPIC AIR 10TO4 MOUNTAIN BIKE CHALLENGE
Brought to you once again by the Mount Kenya Trust
THE TROPIC AIR 10TO4 MOUNTAIN BIKE CHALLENGE RETURNED TO MOUNT KENYA ON
FEBRUARY 24TH TO 26TH 2023
AND WHAT A GREAT WEEKEND IT WAS!
The 2023 event was better than ever, with great routes, spectacular scenery, lots going on at Borana Race Village and, of course, the ever-present possibility of coming face-to-face with some seriously amazing wildlife! What's more, this year we had a brand new race combo on offer - the Wild - which, by popular demand, ran alongside the Extreme as a two-day challenge. It featured a new route entirely located in the striking landscape of the Borana Conservancy and gave those riders not feeling quite up to the rigors of the Extreme the ride of their lives!
HUGE CONGRATULATIONS TO THIS YEAR'S WINNERS WHO ARE ...
About the Cause
The Tropic Air 10to4 Mountain Bike Challenge, now in its 21st year, raises funds for Mount Kenya Trust (MKT), a Kenyan based charity that aims to drive collaborative action for the sustainable management of Mt Kenya’s biodiversity and natural resources through partnerships with government, communities and civil society.
Since the event was established in 2002, over $600,000 has been raised to support the MKT in their work. This includes planting more than half a million trees, building and maintaining a 14km elephant corridor through farmland, two elephant underpasses, returning over 450 hectares of bare land to indigenous forest, tree nurseries nurturing hundreds of thousands of seedlings, and helped 50,000 Kenyans with health care and thousands of children understand conservation better.
