As a resident of Kampala I am always looking for activities to do. Weekends can be a bit challenging for "out of the ordinary"... I contacted Uganda cycles and was offered a range of tours... The legs being rather creaky I took Bert's advice and signed up for a 4 hour "Tour de Gabba.". This was a gentle peddle through the lanes that rim Lake Victoria and a boat trip across the lake stopping off at various points including the fruit seller, a school and the fish market at Gabba.
Bert was a great host ensuring that the bike was set up for me, giving good safety advice and led me out of the traffic and onto fairly quiet lanes. Having lived here for while I experienced and saw a different perspective of kampala life that you cannot get from a car.
I was really impressed by the way that the tour benefits the stop off spots and that the tours have an impact on the people that Bert engages with.
The trip on the long boat allowed me to see Kampala from offshore and a good break from the cycling.
There are lots of high end tours in Uganda but Bert is a new breed of operator offering great value experiences that show a different slice of Kampala/Uganda and I would recommend this to local or drop in tourists alike. it will be on my intinery when I have my family and friends over.
Bradley Wiggins ...... Do not worry I will not be challenging your yellow jersey ..... However a great experience and has even made think about getting down to the cycle shop and getting my own bike!
