A bike ride through the Rwandan countryside

I spent my last full day in Rwanda on a bike ride with this enterpreneurial young man, Yannick, who runs his own cycle touring business during the day and studies tourism management by night. We rode from Musanze (also called Ruhengeri), a city in the north of Rwanda, through a series of villages to the twin lakes of Burera and Ruhondo. 

No one told me beforehand that Yannick used to be a member of the Rwandan national cycling squad... 

The highlights were a boat ride across Lake Ruhondo...

... and the lovely landscape of terraced hills and sweet potato plots that surrounds the two lakes.
