The Nigeria Cross Tour

The Nigeria Cross Tour

The Nigeria Cross Tour requires participants to ride to each of the towns at the tips of the Nigerian Cross namely: Ikot Abasi (Via Ikot Akan) Akwa Ibom State; Katsina, Katsina State; Okuta, Kwara State and Yola, Adamawa State.

From lowlands in the south to mountains in the southeast, central hills and plateaus, and plains in the north, The Nigerian Cross Tour will push your endurance and skills to the very limit. You will experience the equatorial climate in the south, the tropical climate in the central region and it will get semi-arid as you ride into the north.

You will be expected to cover a minimum distance of 2700km within 10 days! This does not include the ride to the start point and the ride back from the endpoint. (We told you this is not for the faint-hearted 😉).

Once your registration is successful, you will receive your Participation Pack, which comprises – the set of rules, Tough Tourer duffel bag, Tough Tourers patch, and sticker.

The clock starts ticking after you make your first “log-in” using the TT App.

The Nigeria Cross Tour is not the same as The Nigeria True Cross Tour, and both tours cannot be done concurrently.

After you complete the tour, it will be reviewed and verified by the TT Board before you are declared a Finisher and awarded with your Nigeria Cross Tour Pin, which validates your ride completion.

Sounds tough enough for you? Then sign up right after you read the rules and procedures.
