Along the way we get to meet nomadic herdsmen wandering from village to village with their flocks of sheep and camels, tribal women in brightly colored saris and intricate jewellery and spot wildlife like the blackbuck and the bluebull. Everyday we see the geography change before our eyes as we ride from the mountains towards the low land past pushkar and some amazing interior country landscapes.

Detailed Itinerary

Arrival Note:
Arrival from Delhi or Mumbai: Take a domestic flight to Udaipur. During peak winter season (Dec-Jan) in Delhi, many of the domestic flights get delayed or cancelled from or to Delhi due to heavy fog here.

Arrival from Jaipur: By non-stop flight (1 hr) to Udaipur or an early morning train (7 hrs) to Udaipur. We can help you with train booking.

Meeting Time and Location:
Meet your Trip Leader at 7:30 am at our Udaipur shop. We recommend to do bike fit at least a day before departure. Please contact your trip consultant for a list of suggested hotels at Udaipur, if required.

Day 1: Udaipur to Kumbhalgarh 
We ride in the mountains on this day. The Aravallis are one of the oldest mountain ranges in the world and its rugged, worn down hills are thickly wooded and littered with numerous mountain streams and brooks. The terrain is slightly challenging and offers excellent opportunites to experience at close quarters the lifestyles of the Bhil tribals – an indigenous tribal people of India and one of the oldest inhabitants of the subcontinent. Later in the evening, we climb the rugged Kumbalgarh Fort, surrounded by a 35km wall with 365 temples within.

Distance Cycled: ~50km / 30mi*

Day 2: Deogarh
This is one of the best cycling route of the trip. The undulating ride adds a marginal challenge for biking, but you have the company of beautiful landscape.

Meals: Breakfast
Distance Cycled: ~50km / 30mi*
Shuttle: 1hr

Day 3: Deogarh

We take a break from bike and on a little tour of a nearby village on foot, to get upclose and personal with rural life of Rajasthan. Hanging acacias, small shrines and village huts of the hamlets close to Ghanerao are extremely picturesque. Back at the hotel, you can relax, browse through books and know more about the history from the host itself.

A half day trip can also be taken on the meter gauge train that still runs through beautiful countryside.

Meals: Breakfast

Day 4: Nimaaj

We ride through a quiet and narrow backroad that offers ample opportunities for spotting wild animals like the black buck,blue bulls and if you’re lucky, the shy but extremely graceful Indian Gazelle too.

Meals: Breakfast
Distance cycled: ~ 45km / 27mi*
Shuttle: 1hr

INCLUSIONS & MORE

we go the extra mile

Beautiful Hotels

On this Casual Inn tour, experience the best of small boutique hotels at each destination. They are chosen carefully so that you are well rested, get a drift of the local character or an enthralling view from your verandah! Under circumstances of non-availability of hotel, we will put in equivalent or a better hotel. Any extras at hotel are at your expense.

Quality Bikes

When you have a road and the thrill of a journey ahead of you, it’s imperative to have a good bike to enjoy it. Most of our tours in India run on some of the best hybrid bikes in the cycling tour industry. Upright position, good traction and optimal balance between performance and comfort are some of the characteristics.

Outstanding Food & Refreshments

Local food plays an integral part in experiencing the culture of region and we make sure that you get plenty of this. The inclusion of daily meals is highlighted in detailed itinerary. Drinking water and soft drinks such as juice, tea/coffee is included while riding.Fresh fruits, cookies, salted chips & water is provided while cycling.

Charming Guides

Our most visible and perhaps most important role is played by a Trip Leader, the folks who make a trip exciting, comfortable, knowledgeable and who are able to steer you towards the real experience! In most of the trips, we have two guides riding with you. One is leading the group of riders and other is closing at the back.

Comfortable Support Van

A Van follows the group of riders throughout the trip and carries all belongings. If at any point riding seems a little hard, the van takes you for as long or as little as you wish it to. It also provides you refreshments along the way and sometimes a chilled beer.

Guaranteed to Depart Tours

We run most of our tours with minimum 2 people traveling and sometimes even with 1 person, without any extra fee. Rest assured, your trip is always guaranteed to depart. If for some reasons you don’t wish to join a tour then you can always transfer to another trip or we’ll give you a credit which you can settle against any future trip.

Entrance Fees & Transportation

Entrance fees to historic sites, museums, temples & other exclusive events and transportation from rendezvous to final drop-off is always included in your tour price. Our tour designers give as much focus on non-cycling activity as on cycling.

Deep Local Knowledge & Presence

Presence of operations in Rajasthan, local associations and ad-hoc field network allows us to leverage local know-how and deliver on what is promised to you without any culture and communications barrier.

Singles Friendly

It is applicable in cases where you want to opt for a room alone or we don’t find a room partner. In other cases, we will try to club you with another person, preferably of same sex.

REVIEWS

from our friends

“The trip was an extraordinary way to experience rural Rajasthan, get up close to farming and rural life as well as get some good exercise in amongst the holiday.”

Isobel ParrishUK

“Kamal was a wealth of information – incredibly intelligent and a very strong rider. Pancheet (Sp?) was a very energetic and wonderful person who was always willing to give his insight and inspired us all along the way. We truly loved both of them and the trip was truly fantastic, Thank You.”

ErinUK

“We enjoyed our Udaipur to Jodhpur cycling trip immensely. Everything was well organised and hotels and activities planned were very fascinating. A great experience overall.”

AnshaAustralia

“As cyclists, this bike tour was one of the highlights of our India trip. Started in Udaipur with GOOD bikes (and we did bike tours everywhere, these were the best quality by far) I got a brand new Giant hybrid and my girlfriend had a Scott. We rode 50ish km the first day finishing with a really fun ascent to the first luxurious hotel (which was like a private resort). The second day we cycled some hills to get to a beautiful town called Narlai. The town has a huge rock called Elephant rock which is a must see and must climb (I did Sunrise and sunset). Here we stayed at a royal guest house. Was beautiful and also had great food. From here we cycled to a royal palace where we were the only guests for the night. Which was quite amazing. Food was okay, but palace and location was beautiful. The final dag rode another 50km and were dropped off in Jodhpur.

I was initially shocked at the cost as my girlfriend organised it. Cost about $1800usd for four days, but included three nights accommodation and meals in very nice places, as well as quality equipment a support vehicle and a great guide Qutub (I think his name was). The only other thing I paid for was beer… Was a really good experience and would highly recommend!”
