Hit the Lights

February 25, 2023 @ 8:30 am - 2:30 pm

The trails at Kijabe are a hot spot for Enduro racing, where professional cyclists test their skills on steep inclines and high speeds. For those new to the sport, the “Hit the Lights” section is a must-try. This short but challenging course is designed to give cyclists a taste of what it’s like to ride in Kijabe. Get ready to test your limits and have fun!

Hit the Lights, a song by Metallica, inspired the trail’s name.
