My husband and I (both 30 years old) had a wonderful time biking through the hills surrounding Lake Kivu. We had a wonderful guide, though he didn't speak English, but he was a nice guy. I would just warn people that this ride is no walk in the park. I work out at least 5 days a week, usually more, and would consider myself to be in pretty good shape. This ride is hard! We only did the one day (and even cut it short), but it is an intense ride with some pretty big hills. I walked a fair bit of the hills and I have been an avid spinner for the last 5 years. You should not be discouraged, but just know what to expect.
The other thing to note is that you would really benefit from gloves. I am not a cyclist and didn't think to bring that gear along. The handles made my hands really sore, especially on the downhills when you need to break.
Overall, it was a spectacular way to see rural Rwanda and the views are breathtaking. We would both do it again and highly recommend it.
