We understand that traveling in these times of COVID-19 is not easy. We are happy to announce that Rwanda has opened its borders for all tourists, although with some testing protocols in place.
The situation though, can change quickly. We will provide this page with updates on the situation starting in March, meanwhile you can find up to date answers to all your travel questions on: https://www.visitrwanda.com/rwanda-reopens/

Ride Rwanda and Tour du Rwanda have always been closely linked. RR participants not only have the chance to ride the same rouds as the TdR professionals, but also see their heroes from up close, when they cross the finish line.
The 2021 edition of the event will have to take into account the guidelines and protocols regarding COVID-19. Each rider will be briefed in detail before the start of the event.
In summary, the main implication is that Ride Rwanda will form a ‘COVID-bubble’, that has been tested negative, and will not be in direct contact with the ‘Tour du Rwanda bubble’. This does imply that even though there will still be a finish line tent, it will be separate from the Tour du Rwanda tent. Also some activities such as the photoshoot with the pro riders, will be replaced with other, more socially distanced, activities.
