Bucket List: Pony Trek – Malealea, Lesotho, Africa

Kelly of Beafunmum.comThere less words and more pictures in this post. It’s taken me a while to sort through the photographs from our trip to Africa in July this year. And before I could share our adventures,  I had to tell the story of what took me to Africa; a hard, yet beautiful story to tell.

Malealea Monster MTB Challenge

Mountain biking (MTB) is in its infancy in Lesotho and only a select few cyclists take advantage of the conditions and terrain across Lesotho to hone their off-road skills.

In order to get Malealea on the proverbial MTB map, we are hosting a MTB event in September 2011. This will be a ride from Matsieng (the home of the King of Lesotho). This incredibly scenic route is approximately 65km of single track, jeep track and gravel road. In addition, a shorter route of 33km is also on offer for those less adventurous, and a short sprint for children will be arranged.
