https://bikepacking.com/routes/trans-uganda/. I will be bikepacking the Trans-Uganda 2,111km route starting mid August 2021. Interested in joining me? The Trans-Uganda route was created by Logan Watts (creator of bikepacking.com) and his wife Virginia to take in as much of the incredible parks and landscapes within Uganda as possible. The route delivers an unforgettable experience via a mix of singletrack trails, jeep tracks, and the most rugged dirt roads on the continent… all the while connecting the sights, places, people, and fauna (like mountain gorillas 20m from your tent) that makes Uganda ‘The Pearl of Africa’. To get excited about doing this trip with me read Logan’s Trans-Uganda summary route guide and his more detailed trip stories 1 The Call of Mzungu , 2 Quazi-Survival and 3 White Man, Wild West, and also Evan Christenson’s impassioned story Wild Times on the Trans-Uganda. The route by numbers: Distance 2,111km; Days 40; % Unpaved 92%; % Singletrack 15%; Difficulty 7/10; % Rideable 99%; Ascent 26,030m; High Point 2,487m.
