Forest Trail XC is an off-road bike race with a circuit inside the Kereita Forest following the dedicated single track around The Forest Adventure center.
The 1st edition of the Mountain Bike event will be held at The Forest which is an adventure center, offering numerous adventure activities. It is just a 1-hour drive outside of Nairobi.
The clean mountain air, high altitude, and undulating terrain make this an ideal location for the mountain bike race.
The race will be a test of speed in an individual time trial format, with a staggered start; sending off riders one at a time. Riders will be allowed 2 laps around the 20kms loop, with the best time between the two laps picked. The racecourse covers 90% of single-track Trails.
The race is designed to test all-around strength, stamina, and mental grit but overall is to have a good time with family and friends. A full range of rider abilities will be accommodated in the race for both men and women, a short kids race will also be organized to keep the young ones occupied in addition to the interactive activities on offer at The Forest Adventure Centre.
