Challenge Series No.4 Rhodes

 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.



Looking to challenge your personal limits?

An undiscovered gem for cyclists, Rhodes Island, Greece is our chosen destination for our exciting Challenge Ride No.4.

Known for its beautiful beaches, delicious food and 300 days of sunshine, we are combining this with 4 days of spectacular cycling to create the perfect recipe for our best challenge ride yet.

This trip is being tailored to 2 groups of riders to ensure everyone has the chance to experience the beautiful coastal routes and quiet mountain roads.

Rhodes is home to many testing climbs and both groups will get the opportunity to take on these monumental ascents. Group 1 will take on slightly further distances each day, while group 2 will still experience the same challenge but at a lower intensity.

Whatever group you choose or however you want to mix it up over the 4 riding days, Rhodes promises to extract the very best from every rider.

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.

* 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

* 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.

"Challenge Ride No.3 to Girona was my second trip with Njinga. The location was stunning, the rides beautiful but challenging and a fantastic group of riders. As always Togo and Josh seemed to get that little bit extra out of us all and I was left feeling invigorated. All that riding needs fuel and Leigh provided the most delicious meals for us. Thank you all for a truly memorable trip."
