THE STOKE

It’s all the Lesotho Sky stoke on one page.

The Lesotho Sky is a sacred mountain bike experience for many riders who return each year to fall in love with mountain biking again. It’s a true ride of passage for any person who longs for old school MTB. We don’t build little bridges or manicure any trails. Riding takes place on ancient trails made by rural life in Africa and Mother Nature.
