Mark Faulkner, one of our leaders, travelled on this trip and you can read his article to get a personal viewpoint of the holiday.
No. The leader carefully breaks up the distances covered with refreshment stops and lunch. The terrain will vary but clients are always free to hop on the support vehicle that shadows the whole group, if they feel like a break. Saying that, you do cover more ground than you think, especially with a tailwind behind you!

For British passport holders, it's very straightforward. You need a clean $50 dollar bill (notes issued before 2001 are NOT accepted ) and the window is on the right as you enter the arrivals building. Please note passports and visas are your own responsibility and we cannot be responsible for any problems you may encounter.

Synthetic, cotton or merino wool tops will be perfect for cycling , especially when it's hot . Shorts (could be padded) will also be great as it will almost certainly be too hot for cycling in trousers. Stiff sole shoes are in general better for cycling but you could also go for sandals. A lightweight windbreaker (or water-resistant/proof top) may come handy in the unlikely event of a spell of bad weather ; however, in case of rain you may well go for being wet because of the rain rather than because of your own sweat under a jacket.

‘In-country’ bike hire should be arranged at the time of booking, and the cost will be added to your invoice. Please note that there are a limited number of bikes available locally. We always have to match a person's height to the bike frame size and, as there are a limited amount of each size, we cannot always guarantee availability of the correct frame. Therefore it is recommended you add the local bike hire as early as possible.

Tanzania Specific Questions
US dollars cash is best, and this is changed into the local currency, the Shilling. We price most activities in our trip notes in dollars, simply to make it easier to calculate costs but you will not be spending dollars directly.
Certain optional activities may be possible to pay in dollars but please note that dollars are not legal tender in Tanzania. There are some ATMs in Arusha and Stonetown, but money is best changed upon arrival at Kilimanjaro airport.
