Red Rocks Wooden Biking
Go back in time and try your hand at riding the ingenious wooden bicycle, an icon of Rwandan craftsmanship. Enjoy the beautiful scenery and take time to talk to the villagers as they go about their daily lives.
Explore the rural landscape of Rwanda with Red Rocks aboard a hand-crafted wooden bike. A favourite with tourists, the ‘coffee bike’ was developed out of the need to transport heavy goods, including potatoes, beans, lumber and coffee. Modern vehicles are beyond the financial means of many locals, so the wooden bike has been and will continue to be a practical and sought-after alternative for generations. Ride your coffee bike through rural Rwanda and into town, where you can stop at one of the local artisan shops to grab yourself a bargain. Then head back to camp to plan your next trekking adventure.
