half a day of riding

As you leisurely cycle through Uganda’s beautiful countryside, stop to enjoy a typical Ugandan snack at one of the food stalls and chat with locals, you might forget that the bustle of Kampala is just 30 minutes away across Lake Victoria. This cycling tour leaves the city behind and covers 20 kilometers of quiet island roads, offering a tour that truly gets you off the beaten path. You will cycle through rural area and see small farmers cultivate their land, ride through vast banana plantation, dodge pigs that are running loose and will greet many enthusiastic kids. The route also passes through small trading centers and a pristine section of rain forest that accommodates a family of monkeys.


The distance, climbs and technicality of this exciting tour can easily be adapted to your preference. It’s possible to add extra distance in order to visit the beautiful Ssezibwa Falls or combine cycling with lunch or a visit to an adventure park with  a high rope course. Need a pick up from your hotel or guesthouse? Ask for possibilities.

We will gather at Ggaba Beach House gardens at 8am. A 30-minute boat ride will take you across Lake Victoria from where we will start riding. The ride will take about 2-3 hours depending on your skill and fitness level. During the trip we will stop at a typical Ugandan trading center for some local snacks. You will be able to buy water and other things there if needed. To return home you will have to pedal the last stretch of 2 kilometers to find the boat waiting to take us back to the starting point.
