Why do Njinga's Summer Solstice 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.

* Our Ride Captains 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.

"I loved it! Tough and challenging but so, so rewarding and great team spirit. Togo’s enthusiasm and encouragement pushed me to reach levels I didn’t think I could." Sophie Dale

Camaraderie and Support

* Our number 1 consistent feedback is the support and encouragement of the Njinga community that keeps everyone coming back. Not only from the friendly and supportive staff but the riders themselves, driving each other on to tackle the challenge.

* The difference is doing a challenge with new and existing friends that are all there to keep you going during your dark hours in the hurt locker.

"Great few days away with excellent coaching and support and fantastic food. Highly recommended" Tom Ashworth

Family Feel Accommodation

* We want you to "feel at home" when away on one of our trips! We look for spacious and super comfortable accommodation so you can kick back and relax after a good day out in the saddle.

* We try our best to ensure everyone has access to an en suite bathroom, there is plenty space for bike storage and a great place to gather around for evening drinks and dinner.

* We have been told it’s the community feel, camaraderie and group support, no matter what level of rider, that keeps everyone coming back.

"Stunning scenery, empty roads, a challenging few days riding and food and hospitality second to none. An excellent highly recommended weekend." John Sawyer

Highly recommend a long weekend with Njinga. Will definitely do another. Leigh and Togo are incredibly accommodating and giving. We got fantastic coaching tips all weekend. Great food and great company.  We enjoyed everything about it, even the rain. Your planning, organisation and hospitality was once again faultless.

It exceeded all my expectations. The team had prepared great routes and although the rides were challenging, everyone was really friendly, the atmosphere was relaxed and we had plenty of time for coffee and cake stops!
