The multi road biking tour is not just for all that cycling but the trip goes through some really gorgeous landscape covering Karnataka, Tamil Nadu And Kerala. From mountains to gurgling streams and vast forests to gentle valleys, you will be traversing a terrain that showcases the biodiversity of Incredible India! Plus, cycling through three wildlife sanctuaries of Nagarhole In Karnataka, Wayanad In Kerala and Mudumalai in Tamil Nadu. Get ready to answer the call of the wild.

The Cause Effect

Meant for those who want to go beyond cycling around the block, this tour tests strength, endurance, stamina and your overall spirit. Also, for those who want to cycle for a cause. You can take up any non-profit cause and cycle for kids, for the environment and for anything that is dear to you.

Roughing It Out

To make things that much harder {as if an almost vertical climb is not enough}, there are individual time trials in different categories — the Kalahatti leg being the most difficult of the lot. Unfortunately registrations are already closed for 2016, but will open in May for the 2017 session. So start training now folks!
