The challenge is to cycle 395km over 6 days through this fascinating region. Each day will provide us with an ‘off-the-beaten-track’ adventure through some of the best hill and desert landscapes that Rajasthan has to offer.
This charity bike ride will give us the best experience India can offer - we’ll have opportunities to explore the amazing painted “havelis” (mansions) of Shekhawati – a remote area where rich merchants once aimed to outdo each other by painting their homes in ever more exuberant styles. Time has largely stood still since this extravagant heydey, making this a fascinating area in which to hold this charity challenge.
From Shekhawati, we head further into rural Rajasthan - an area of stunning desert landscapes dotted with villages of vibrant colour – a complete contrast to the world-renowned sights of Delhi and Jaipur. We end our time in India visiting the must see Taj Mahal.
