The '10 to 4' Mountain Bike Challenge
The Mount Kenya '10 to 4' is a downhill mountain bike race and fun ride, organised by residents from the Nanyuki and Timau area and the Executive Officer of the Mount Kenya Trust. The event is now held annually to raise funds for local communities and conservation efforts on Mount Kenya.

The proceeds of the 10 to 4 Mountain Bike Challenge are divided equally between community schools and projects in the vicinity of the 10 to 4 route, and the Bill Woodley Mount Kenya Trust.
This event needs sponsorship from corporate organisations and individuals in order to raise funds.
