- Days 1 - 2 : Flight to Kilimanjaro International Airport in Tanzania then transfer to the hotel. The second day will be spent preparing for the trip; there will be a briefing, checking that the bikes are ready, and the sorting out of backpacks.
- Days 3 - 7 : It’s a five-day climb to our Basecamp. Overnight stay in the camp at 2980m above sea level, then afterwards a climb to Horombo, at 3700m above sea level. We’ll have a day of rest at this altitude with only a short climb during the day and then return to camp. We’ll reach the Kibo Hut on the 7th day and will then be at 4700m above sea level. The climbs may be manageable on a bike but sometimes we’ll need to push them.
- Day 8 : We`ll spend an further day acclimatising at Kibo hut – climbing up to Hans-Meyer-Cave – whilst mentally and physically preparing ourselves for summit day.
- Day 9 : The ascent will start shortly after midnight. The bike must be pushed and carried to the summit. We will proceed to the main peak: Uhuru Peak. After this we will be rewarded with a 2200-meter-long descent on gravel and single tracks. We cannot ride for around 100 metres, but for the rest we can use our bikes.
- Day 10 : Going down is sooo much easier! Awaiting us is another 2000m of downhill. We will know the route well from our ascent. Dinner and shower at the hotel.
