Overview

Once you indulge in hiking and cycling, your blood flows well, and your heart pumps better. This adventure we need daily to boost our good health. A good diet is good, but hiking and cycling are better.

Hiking and cycling require good preparation, both mental and physical. Therefore, it would be best to have an adventure bike on top of everything for backpacking. Even the specialized frame, handlebar, and seat bags will be an extra expense compared to a regular backpack you need for hiking and cycling. Plus, you must carry tools and materials in case something breaks on your bike.
Cycling allows you to explore a much wider area. Even those boring parts of a hike along the road can be fun cruising on a bicycle. Racing downhill on a bike, over stones, and through puddles is a thrill you won’t experience on foot. But there’s an apparent drawback; you can only take your bike in some places. The wildest areas and the most beautiful mountain-top views are often inaccessible even to the most adventurous backpackers. It’s all a matter of preference.

Cycling and hiking have a lot in common. Whether hiking or backpacking, you can explore beautiful nature and disconnect from the modern world. While cycling burns more calories on more challenging terrain, hiking burns more during the more manageable parts. They are excellent if you want to stay in shape and manage weight. Even though bike-packing tends to be more expensive, you can enjoy both with essential gear that will remain in the bank. If you want to go far, choose a bicycle; if you want to go to wilder places, go on foot. Anyway, you will likely enjoy yourself no matter the choice.
Many people do cycling for just an adventure, but there is more than just adventure travel; cycling is good for your health. It can help you lose weight and build your muscles, brain, and mental health.

On a hiking and cycling adventure, you increase protein production, which is essential to create new brain cells that slow aging and improve memory. It also stimulates our brain to stay alert.
Anyone can get this good habit of hiking and cycling, and the results are unbelievable.
Once you start the adventure, do it at your pace, with no competition; relax and do it at your limit; the benefit is more than just a ride or hike; good brain, better sleep, and relaxed muscles.

Itinerary

After breakfast, pick up from your hotel and drive to Hell’s Gate National Park along the great rift valley. After you enter the park, the fascinating landscape unfolds, and you are transported to semi-arid cliffs, open plains, and deep gorges. You can do many activities within Hell’s Gate, including walking, cycling, rock climbing, bird watching, and trekking through the valley amongst the geysers – the choice is yours. Cycle back to the gate and proceed to Else-mere home to the late Joy and George, A damson of Born Free fame, for lunch. Lunch is served, and you can enjoy a boat ride to the other side of the lake island. You can look out for some of the hundreds of bird species and the hippos (which you may hear at camp tonight!). You may even have the company of black and white Columbus monkeys during lunch.
