…………….the countdown begins , 10 days to go until the migration !
The Elephant Epic MTB cycle from Lusaka to the lower Zambezi ! This cycle race is scheduled to take place on the 16th August 2014 . The event is fully subscribed , with just under 100 cyclists from all corners of the globe cycling with one objective – to explore remote and beautiful Zambia , raise funds for wildlife conservation and primarily to have fun and enjoy the day .
A destination ride is always a challenge – not only for the organizers – as the start and finish are in different locations – but also for the cyclists . It feels such a great accomplishment to cycle from one point to another , in this case from Lusaka to the lower Zambezi , a mere 72.5 km.
The Elephant Epic is a popular event , as the non cyclists and families have an opportunity to meet on the lower Zambezi , welcome the cyclists home and join in the festivities on the river .
At this stage we would really like to thank our sponsors , as without their amazing support and enthusiasm we could not pull off such a popular event .
