SpiceRoads Cycling launches East Africa tours

The Bangkok-based provider of cycle tours in emerging destinations thinks the tours are unique.

SpiceRoads Cycling, which calls itself one of the world’s leaders in cycle tours in emerging destinations, has just launched three new countries in its line-up of adventure cycling destinations.

The launch in Tanzania, Rwanda and Uganda covers two new adventure cycling tours – Cycling Kilimanjaro to the Indian Ocean, which is a nine-day Tanzania tour, and Cycling Uganda & Rwanda: The Heart of Africa, a 15-day off-road tour.

Bangkok-based SpiceRoads says that both tours “capture the essence of the destinations – amazing landscapes, unparalleled wildlife experiences, authentic local encounters”, while providing SpiceRoads’ “signature of fantastic cycling”.

“Africa is a fantastic adventure destination – amazing cycling, so much to do and see, so much to change your mind about,” enthuses Patricia Weismantel, product manager.

“These two new tours showcase the absolute best of Tanzania, Uganda and Rwanda – and they do it all on two wheels.”

“We’ve identified East Africa as the perfect region for high-quality adventure cycling experiences,” says SpiceRoads’ managing director, Daniel Moylan.

“To our knowledge, there is no international cycle tour operator offering similar cycling itineraries to ours in these destinations. We’re confident that cyclists and active travellers will love exploring East Africa by bike with us.”

Fast-growing sector
Adventure tourism has been described as the fastest growing sector of the travel industry, and cycling is emerging as one of the most popular ways for adventure tourists to experience a destination while staying active.

SpiceRoads also recently launched e-bikes in Vietnam and Sri Lanka, and the East Africa launch is part of a wider plan “to deliver eye-opening and pioneering cycling experiences in emerging and challenging adventure destinations”.
