Pedalyatri epitomises the sort of fun-loving, exciting groups where members have a mutual interest (in this case, cycling and exploring the outdoors), and have married this interest with their day to day city lives.
Pedalyatri is not made up of a bunch of road-runners or cycling pros. The crew “running” Pedalyatri includes Anand Sinha, Manish Gahlaut, Jasbir Singh and Rajesh Kalra, all stalwarts in their professions, with full-time jobs. The cherry on top? These rides end with some good old halwa, chai made with milk straight out of a cow, buttermilk, parathas, laddoos, and samosas, from food stalls tucked away in obscure villages. They’re inviting everybody interested to join them on these jaunts…as long as you can make it in time for a 5.30 AM ride.
What started seven years ago as an endeavour to bring together people with a passion for cycling, today enlists a community of over 2,000 people! Members embark on 50-60 km trails on the weekend, and trails covering 25-30 km on weekdays. The routes take them through villages, wilderness, and sometimes even up to Damdama lake.
Pedalyatri is a community of cycle riders based in Gurgaon. There is no membership fee; you just need to really enjoy riding in the outdoors!
