RouteEdit

The complete route of the 2021 Tour du Rwanda was revealed on 29 November 2020. The eight-day stage race covers 913.3 kilometres (567.5 mi) and over 16,347 metres (53,632 ft) of elevation, with 29 categorized climbs and many stages ending with a summit finish. Like in previous editions, the Rwandan capital Kigali features heavily in the race, being a start and/or finish location on all but one of the eight stages.
