Our guided Moshi Bike Tour is popular for a reason. It’s 20km so it’s long enough to be an adventure but it’s not exactly the Tour de France. And it’s the best way to see the true Moshi. This fascinating tour takes you from the colorful, bustling Moshi town roads to nearby picturesque villages, through forest trails, and along tiny farmland paths. You’ll get an authentic flavor of this little typically-Tanzanian community nestling in the green and fertile foothills of Kilimanjaro, through first-hand experience of town and agricultural life and of its colonial history. And you’ll enjoy a few drinks, too!
You’ll start your bike tour around 9:Am. You will get enough advice and instruction on how the Tanzanian roads works so that you can be safe when out riding.
You’ll ride along the Moshi places, and see how native people their daily life is. Cycling at Majengo district of Moshi, which is the heartland of Moshi craft. From here you’ll pass through the small farms and family houses of the Msaranga area.
You will have an opportunity of helping out the local field workers. You’ll certainly gain an appreciation of how much hard work goes into a sack of rice as you will pass along the rice fieldwork so that you can experience how much work is done at the field, and that field workplace is at Mandaka Village. After short labor you will enjoy a delicious lunch, hosted by a friendly local family. You’ll enjoy pilau, a traditional rice-based Tanzanian meal, as you chill out with your host family on their shady verandah.
Once you’ve rested and fuelled up, it’s time to continue your bike ride through the Rau Forest, a jewel of protected tropical woodland, alive with birdsong and the calls of animals. Keep an eye out for the black-and-white faces of colobus monkeys peering curiously at you as you go by. You won’t be the first to wonder just how fluffy a monkeytail can be.
Then if the weather will be as good then you will be able to have a great view of Kilimanjaro while sipping a cold beer from the railway station bar(Kona Bar), and that will be the final stop before your ride back into the town.
