Why is India an Incredible Cycling Destination?


The image many people have of India is that of a crowded, polluted and hassle-prone destination. But what they forget is India has only 4 major cities that cover only 1% of the total area of India. The rest 99% is countryside with no traffic, scenic route, unexplored regions and some of the world’s most interesting places.

India is a cyclists' paradise. It is a home to various geographical features such as rivers, mountains, valleys, tablelands, seashores, deserts, and flat terrains. If you set out on two wheels, on the diverse topography of this land - the Himalayas, The Peninsular Plateau, The Northern Plains, and the Coastal Plains - there is no doubt that your adrenaline is sure to get pumped up. 

The more you learn about India, the less you know because India is the seventh largest country in the world by area and, with over a billion people, is second in population. Diversity is found like nowhere else, in every nook and corner of this country.


Here are 3 reasons why India is an incredible cycling destination

  1. Challenging Terrains

India allows you to race through its ancient and rich civilization that lead you to challenge your limits. From pedaling to the top of the world at Leh-Khardung la in the Great Himalayan Mountain ranges, to the mesmerizing City of Lakes and Palaces in Rajasthan, from wheeling through water in the beaches of Goa to experiencing the greatness of nature down South India, Indian terrains are definitely the ones to add to your BikeIT list!

  1. Rewarding Landscapes

"Good things come to those who wait, but best things come to those who DO."

You may not be the strongest or the fastest but if you have tried your hardest to accomplish your cycling goal you can expect to be rewarded by nature. For example, when you cycle up to the top of the second highest motorable road pass in India - Taglang La you are rewarded with wonderful views of both the Himalaya and the Karakorum Mountains. Yes! Life is a climb and the view is worth it.
