Mekelle, the centre of road cycling in Ethiopia, is where hundreds of aspiring cyclists train throughout the year. Unlike our other tours, this tour is based predominantly in Mekelle, using one hotel as your base, apart from one night away to break up a 285km loop midway through your stay. Over the first three days you will ride on different routes taking you out and back to Mekelle, any of which can be repeated towards the end of your stay. The map shows the spectacular ride through Abala into the Afar region. We provide support for your rides and offer sports massage afterwards as required.
