Ride The Rift has today announced plans for a special Timkat tour that allows cycling enthusiasts to enjoy some spectacular cycling in the awe-inspiring scenery of the Jamma River Gorge. The tour will take place over the long Timkat weekend (15-19 January 2021).

Coming together as a group of four travel companies who last month delivered the charity bike ride from Afar to Ankober, the organisers which include Ethio Cycling Holidays hope that this Timkat tour will similarly attract large numbers and a wide range of abilities and give participants chance to marvel at the beauty of this land of canyons less than 4 hours’ drive from Addis.

Included in the itinerary is also the opportunity to view the highland night skies using telescopes from the Ethiopian Space Science & Technology Institute whose experts will also be on hand to give advice and talk with participants. The tour ends with a special celebration with local communities based around the second campsite used for the tour.
