The Laikipia XC takes place in the heart of the Laikipia plateau, at the foot of Africa’s second highest mountain, Mount Kenya. You will ride through the Mount Kenya forest, along the foothills of the mountain, into wildlife conservancies, private farms and ranches and have the opportunity to see lots of wildlife along the way. It truly is an experience of a lifetime. You will be staying in a safari style camp in the complete wild, miles from the nearest form of civilisation. Hot bush showers, amazing food, the African night sky and animal calls await you at the end of a long day in the saddle. You will experience true hospitality from our professional and welcoming crew each day.
“The Laikipia XC is more than just a bike race, it is also a life experience and safari rolled into one”
Justin Price, professional New Zealander mountain biker
Laikipia XC 2014
The race route has been carefully thought out and will provide you with varied, challenging riding each day. The altitude and heat also plays a serious factor in the course difficulty – it is the toughest race in East Africa yet! The course is fully marked and we have great support from rangers in the wildlife conservancies.
