Lesotho Road Tours
We have called Lesotho the #MountainBikeKingdom for some time now but in actuality the Roads are simply amazing. Crazy alpine passes, smooth surfaces and little to no traffic to speak of. This coupled with the cultural aspects of Lesotho make Road riding in Lesotho simply put: Astonishing!
The Tour of Lesotho
The tour of Lesotho is a 3 day 500km mammoth exploration of southern Lesotho by Road bike. We road this for the first time in 2015 and were blown away by everything Lesotho had to offer on a road bike. Lesotho is one of the few places in Africa you can experience alpine Le Tour De France style mountain passes. And the only place you can do it with so little traffic.
