Why do a Njinga Challenge?

Challenge your Boundaries

* Our Njinga challenge rides are that little something extra- that trip that will create a life changing experience, provide lasting memories and take you on a journey that challenges your boundaries.

* We are there every step of the way to provide the right amount of support to push you that little bit further than even you thought you could go.

* We want you to come away from each Challenge with that feeling that brings a smile to your face for days after, knowing that you have achieved something incredible.

Camaraderie and Support

* You have trained together, now ride together! Our number 1 feedback is the support and encouragement of the Njinga community that keeps everyone coming back.

* Not only do we provide excellent support with ride captains, support van and our #fuelsmart feedstops, the difference is doing a challenge with friends that are all there to keep you going during your dark hours in the hurt locker.


The Details

* Why stand when you can sit, why sit when you can lay down”. We take care of everything, from daily luggage transfers and logistics to finding the right restaurant for dinner. We want to ensure riders have no excuses but to concentrate 100% on riding and pushing themselves physically.

What an amazing week of hard riding through beautiful scenery! We worked hard but had a great time doing it -- the support crew were great! Getting to know fellow Njinga riders better made it lots of fun!
