One of our favourite cycling spots in Lesotho is in Roma. The Velosolutions Pump Track in Roma is the first #pumpforpeace track in the world. It was completed in April 2017 and has become a hotspot for cycling culture in the Mountain Kingdom.
The track is operated by Sky Adventures and is home to the Lesotho Sky Cycling Club.
The monthly Sky Cycling League takes place here and riders train hard for the annual Red Bull Pump Track World Championship Qualifier.
There are more pumptracks in Lesotho! Click here for more information.
