I 'The Great Himalayan Trance' 2018 - a cycle ride from Delhi to the pristine mountains of Kathmandu, Nepal
Covering a distance of 1100 kms – The exhilaration of what a cycle ride on the Himalayas has to offer conjures a vast mix of emotions. It is one of the most pristine unadulterated route which will allure every rider while paddling.
Crossing the borders of Nepal and climbing almost 10,000 mtrs on unknown , undiscovered roads & territory, language and culture which may throw up plenty of obstacles!!! But who cares??? As long as it can raise the spirits and evoke a sense of trance and achievement on the Himalayas. It may not be easy but it will be worth every moment traversing through the unknown territories cutting across the dense wooded National Parks of Bardia and Banke on endless straight roads, the numerous gushing streams on the mountains which transforms into lazily meandering wide rivers on the plains, several uphill switchbacks to stunning descents.
5 nights and 6 days of exhilarating experience with warm smiling people full of curiosity while riding through small rural towns and villages from India to Nepal. As Ernest Hemingway said “ It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them.”
We at Delhi Randonneurs would like to invite you to be a part of this epic ride and join in with your two-wheeled beau. The details of the ride, commercials etc are attached herewith for your perusal.
We look forward to forging a long standing association.
