EXTREME

Distance: Approx 80KM on Day 1 & 62KM on Day 2
Minimum Age: 17+
Date: 14th & 15th February 2020
Entry Fee: Ksh 30,000 / $300 / £225

Extreme, adj. exceeding what is usual or reasonable.

Held over two days, the Extreme combines both the Hardcore and the Roller Coaster Classic. This event will challenge the fitness and technical abilities of seasoned mountain bikers and elite teams.

Covering approx. 80km on Day 1, riders will face an elevation gain and loss of nearly 2000m with fast technical sections and single track all on Borana Conservancy. Day 2 follows with the Roller Coaster, a 62km race, that has become synonymous with the 10to4.

The Extreme is not for the faint of heart. If in doubt over either your endurance capabilities or technical riding prowess perhaps the “Classic or Rush” is the answer? You must be a seasoned mountain bike rider to take part.

The ride is not, however, all downhill, featuring some vicious climbs when the body least wants it. Estimated ride time between 2 and 6 hours depending on ability. A high level of fitness and experience is required.

ENDURO

Distance: TBC
Minimum Age: 17+
Date: 14th February 2020
Entry Fee: KSh 10,000/ $100/ £80

Enduro is a type of mountain bike racing where the downhills are timed, and the uphills are not. Riders are timed in stages that are primarily downhill, with neutral "transfer" stages in between. The transfer stages usually must be completed within a time-limit but are not part of the accumulated time.

Enjoy the trails, have fun, meet people, ride great technical trails. Be happy to take responsibility for yourself and anything that happens on the Trail. Bicycles must be robust and in good working order. Tubeless tires pretty much a must. Come prepared with: Spares, mini pump, multi-tool, tubes, zip ties, puncture repair kit, phone, spare hanger, tire levers, first aid kit, water, food & snacks…MUST have experience on technical trails.

Come for a real “adventure” ... It’s going to be a great ride! Keep the rubber side down!!

HORSE RIDING

Altitude Ride in the Wild on Borana Conservancy

Date: 14th-16th February 2020

Altitude Ride in the Wild_Sponsorship Form_2020

Following the success of the 2018 and 2019 Altitude Horse Ride, this year we are offering two horseback experiences as part of the 10to4 Mountain Bike Challenge.

These two rides will take place on Friday 14th February and Sunday 16th February 2020; one will offer a slower ride (min. age guide 10+) and the other a faster ride (min. age guide 12+). However, both offer something slightly different to those who enjoy exploring the beautiful savannah of Borana Conservancy on horseback (rather than 2 wheels) whilst raising valuable funds for mountain conservation.

For full details on the ride offerings and how to get involved please click here to view the Altitude Ride in the Wild_Info Sheet_2020
