When Ethio Cycling Holidays reached out and asked if I had ever considered cycling in Ethiopia?
my answer was “No, but tell me more !”
Richard (one of the founders) showed me a few photos and told me about the rich culture and history of Ethiopia. “Wow!” I replied I’d love to make this happen.
It’s the 4th of March. My wife and I are making our way to London Heathrow Airport (Terminal 2) to begin our journey to Makelle, Ethiopia. The capital city of the Tigray region which is north of Addis Ababa. Before our flight to Makelle, we take an overnight flight to the Ethiopian Airlines hub in the capital city of Addis Ababa.

A film by Ryan Le Garrec Produced by Ryan Le Garrec and Lander Deldime. Made with the support of The Race Around Rwanda, Visit Rwanda, and Hunt Bike Wheels.
On February 2020, 65 people lined up at the starting line of what was to become an extraordinary adventure, a challenge through thunderstorms, muddy roads, and never-ending hills, rewarded with stunning views, thousands of cheers and everlasting memories. Each and every participant of this 1.000 km bikepacking race has an amazing story to tell, Tugende shows you some of these stories, from the very first person over the finish line, to the last one to reach Kigali.
I arrived in Rwanda on the 26th of January and was greeted by a spooky line of doctors and nurses wearing masks, they were filtering us before border control, asking us to remain about two meters away from them while they would conduct a short interview.
The world was barely aware of the virus outbreak at that time, Corona was still a light Mexican beer, flying was no biggie and I was just happy I had managed to sneak in business class and have two dinners, champagne, and a screen to watch films.
My only concern was finding the next race I could cover. I hadn’t started enjoying that one and I was already thinking of the void after it.
Tugende is a film about the race around Rwanda, made by Ryan Le Garrec, produced by Ryan Le Garrec and Lander Deldime. Check back here on the 22nd of April for the full feature and photos.
Since 2003, the Tour d’Afrique has brought cyclists out to Africa to ride from Cairo to Cape Town…
Temple Cycles in the UK sponsored a young rider named Jack who wanted to ride self-supported 6000km through Africa. This is his story.
One Bike, a community-based, Social Enterprise of bicycle enthusiasts, located in the vicinity of Mount Kilimanjaro has one mission; to support and improve the lives of people in Tanzania by using bicycles to empower them to live healthy lifestyles, build strong communities, and save our environment.
Each weekend, One Bike holds a Re-Cycling Tour which invites members of the community around Moshi to join in as they ride the roads in town and pick up plastic bottles. One Bike wants to do their part in protecting the environment around the villages of Kilimanjaro, especially in the context of maintaining a vibrant tourism industry.
This came out so rad. I saw one of the rough cuts at Eurobike. Here’s the scoop:
