- Saturday night will have a night ride open for all those with headlights.
COURSE DETAILS: Trail terrain is generally smooth but can be raw and technical in some parts. While the altitude is not extreme, the hills on Stage 2 are tough expect to feel like a dead fish if you are out of shape.
NAVIGATION: Adventure and self-reliance are at the heart of all RVO events. Riding this unmarked course requires a Garmin GPS for self-navigation. A Kenya Road map is available for purchase from RVO (pre-loaded onto a micro-SD card ready for use in your Garmin).
