The circuit is 100km +/- and 1600meters elevations gain and loss. A mixture of tarmac, good road, bad road, and some trail. If you want there is 200m vertical on steep rock trail in the picture above.
John and Amanda meet me at my house and we ride clockwise. I need to mention they are in training for a 7 day race in south america and are very fit.
We have several options for the first section to Monduli town. We choose the very very old road to Monduli town. It gets more washed out each year and this time the washouts were deeper. It took almost 3 hours to get to Monduli town. Next time I will try going way up the mountain into the forest and down as we did a fair mount of route finding and up and down.
Riding through the wheat farms of Likamba. It was greener than it looks and no dust.
We left the fog around Mnt Meru behind.
Friendly kids getting their entertainment.
Next section is riding up a good road through a thick forested valley to Monduli Juu plateau.
Then rolling road on the plateau.
Then long downhill and hairpin switchbacks to Mfereji.
