This ISN’T necessarily road biking territory – but nevertheless a lot of road biking is done by the club. The options for road biking are relatively limited by the lack of paved roads, but this being said, Arusha is endowed with more options than most cities in Tanzania. So we count ourselves lucky. We have uploaded a reasonable number of routes – ranging from 65 km to 150Km plus. There are three basic options – eastwards to Moshi, westwards to Makuyuni and beyond, and northwards to Longido and Namanga. This latter route is currently being repaved and therefore is not useable.
Please read the cycling safety page – as unfortunately drivers on paved roads in Tanzania can be high speed maniacs, with little thought given to the lives of others using the road. Thus far we have not had any major accidents – and we hope it stays that way!
