Kintu Trial

The Kintu Trial is a 5-day event set in Uganda in which mountain biking and adventure are key. In 5 days the participants will ride a total of almost 500KM with an average of 1800 altimeters per day. The route is put together by local mountain bikers in the months prior to the event and is therefore unique. In the Kintu Trial, the routes are always 95% off-road with as many single tracks as possible. Every participant will be pushed to the limit, so definitely don’t underestimate the event. Each edition will have a different route and the event will therefore never be the same.

The Kintu Trial guarantees for adventure and challenging mountain biking in stunning natural setting!

During the challenge the time will be measured and a ranking will be maintained. However, the Kintu Trial should not be seen as a race, but as an item on your bucket list, a lifetime experience that you can brag about at home. Participants cycle in teams of 2 or 3 people at their own pace using GPS navigation. There will be announced and unannounced checkpoints along the way. There is a time limit per checkpoint, if you arrive late you will be transported by bus to the end point. You can simply participate again the next day.

Highlights include:

  • 5 days and almost 500 KM of mountain biking through Uganda on challenging and unique trails put together by local experts
  • well organised all-in adventure with overnight stays at special places
  • beautifull trails through national parks such as Bwindi Impenetrable Forest and Queen Elizabeth National Park with wildlife encounters
  • no exaggerated luxury, but with the comfort of a coffee in the morning and a campfire with a beer in the evening
  • a different beautiful environment every day
