About Ethio Cycling Adventures
Ethiopia is an exceptional country for bicycle tours. The climate is pleasant; the landscape varies from green rolling hills to dramatic mountains with impressive views…. But one of the greatest charms of Ethiopia are its friendly people and many small settlements of some scattered huts with playing children and cattle around them. What better way to experience all of this on 2 wheels!

I went on a trip with Chewy on Saturday and it was the highlight of my trip here in Addis Ababa! I opted for Trip B and it was most definitely worth every penny and much more. As a review for those curious about the level of fitness it requires, I'm a relatively fit person that runs and hits the gym 3-4 days a week, and this program was just right, but you might want to wear a pair of cycling pants (which I did not!) I got to cycle through traffic, climb steep hills (which I managed even though I'm more of a downhill person), see amazing views (along with a hyenas den), and enjoyed riding down fun single track routes. Chewy is a pleasure to ride with and I whole heartedly recommend him to anyone interested in getting outdoors to see a different side of Addis Ababa.

It was such a great experience to go cycling (mtb) in the hills around Addis Abeba with Chewy! It was a real adventure, the views were amazing, and it was great to discover a bit of the everyday life of people living at the outskirts of Addis. Chewy is a great guide, very knowledgeable and attentive to everyone's needs. It's a great (and safe) way to explore Addis/Ethiopia even in covid19-times. Highly recommended!

I had an amazing half-day tour with Chewy climbing the mountain on the edge of Addis. It was a great loop that included some difficult parts climbing and some smoother parts through the forests and villages. He provided a high quality bike and good tips for a newbie biker. Chewy is exceptionally nice and knowledgeable, and a cool guy to get to know. I really recommend his company for anyone who is looking for an active way to experience the country. He has a seemingly endless list of ideas for where to bike and is able to customize around your needs. The price was reasonable too. I will definitely tour with him again the next time I am visiting Ethiopia.

Amazing experience riding on the mountain that overlooks Addis. It’s a beautiful landscape and challenging riding (mostly double track) due to pitch and elevation. Chewy is a great guy and guide - we had a lot of fun together during the day. We visited an overlook to watch hyenas at their daytime den, which was a highlight. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend.

A fantastic day's ride in the mountains outside Addis. Chewy is a great guide - friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable. I highly recommend. I only wish I had more time for a longer ride in other spectacular areas of Ethiopia!
