Once again, the Race Around Rwanda, is a self-supported bikepacking race, over 1.000km and a time limit of 6 days (but a finish party only on day 7, even if you miss cut-off, you can make that one). 

40% of the race is over gravel roads, so a gravel bike and good tires is a requirement!

  • 1.000 km
  • 15.000 m of elevation
  • 9 gravel sectors for a total of 400km gravel
  • 600 km of incredibly smooth tarmac roads
