MODERN PEDAL POWER MEETS ANCIENT CIVILISATION TO PROVIDE THE RIDE OF YOUR LIFE

27 OCTOBER - 4 NOVEMBER 2007

Our 400 kilometre 5-day River Nile cycle challenge will transport you back to the Egypt of 4500 years ago and a land of pyramids and Sphinx..

There will be opportunities to visit the Egyptian Museum in Cairo, Tutankhamun and the Pyramids before tackling this challenging bike trip down the River Nile, Egyptís main artery.

The scenery on the way is one of contrasts as the fertile vegetation of the Nile delta gives way to yellow desert sand.

The temperatures in Egypt at this time of year can be in the region of 30 degrees centigrade so this trip is a real challenge and not just a sight seeing bike ride. You will need to be moderately fit and have trained before setting out.

The cycles are provided as are all meals and at night you will be eating and sleeping on board a Nile cruise boat.

To take part in this awe inspiring challenge you will need to pay a registration fee of £199 and raise a minimum amount of sponsorship.

And donít worry if you havenít fundraised before, our Challenge Events Team will be with you to help and support your efforts every step of the way!
