Welcome to the first ever Red Island Ride – a stage race in the wilds and highlands of that mysterious country called Madagascar.
You will travel through the mountainous region of central Madagascar, into remote regions where the communities are not familiar with vazaha (foreigners) and drop down into the world famous rain forests to see the unique wildlife that exists hidden from the average tourist’s eyes.
Some of you will test yourselves against the clock and other riders but most of you will test yourselves against the terrain. You will experience true Malagasy hospitality, not the usual tourist fare or experiences. It is a poor nation but the people do not have impoverished spirit. You will leave a bit of your soul behind and carry a part of Madagascar with you when you leave. You will be the first generation of the Red Island Tribe and as such, will carry the flame with you always. Together we will build a community around the world of those who have been touched by their Malagasy experience.
