The mountains provide us with a variety of ecosystems that are able to sustain our lives as we keep taking away more and more from nature. The mountains give us so much, yet we take them for granted.
Every year, the Mount Kenya Trust (www.mountkenyatrust.org) runs an event called the 10to4 bike race (www.10to4.org) on the slopes of the great Mount Kenya in an effort to raise funding and awareness for conservation work on and around the mountain. People from all over the world come to participate in the challenges set out for them.
This year was the biggest event yet and even the weather held up to see this marvelous spectacle of avid riders ride their way through the vast terrains of the Kisima Farm, Ol Donyo Farm, Ngare Ndare forest, and Borana Conservancy.
We all need to do our little parts to conserve the ecosystem of the mountain. This is but one part of it. Please check out the work that Mount Kenya Trust do and support their causes
