NOTE:

Fitness Require:

This trip is quite Challenging and certainly, it will test your stamina during the ride, but this doesn't mean that you need a six pack abs or Olympic player to complete this ride. anyone who is physically fit can do it. The only thing that it takes is motivation & practicing a routine prior to your departure because the more you practice, more enjoyable the journey would be. The practice schedule varies from person to person. If you are a complete novice to cycling & haven't cycled before, then it takes somewhat more sweating than the one who is a regular to pedaling. Since the expedition involves high altitude & uphill riding conditions. The majority of the riding is on paved roads or hard packed dirt roads. Most are in fairly good condition but there are also some rough sections. The distance covered varies on each day depending upon the gradient of the route. The longest distance covered in a day is 74 km when its mostly downhill & the shortest is 38 km's when it's a complete ascent. If you are planning this adventure trip with us then you do not have to worry about the practice schedule as at Explore Himalaya we will send you the practice schedule and diet chart 45 days prior to departure. As the trip is 100% vehicle‐supported, there will nearly always be the option to enjoy the scenery from the vehicle. The leader will inform you in advance about any off road sections you will be advised of this in the daily briefing.


Your Bike: 

We recommend that you bring a mountain bike that you are familiar with, i.e. not too new. The bike should have front suspension, As the trip crosses several high altitudes passes, your bike should be suitable for sustained climbing. Tires suitable for riding on hard packed off road conditions are recommended. It is very important that your bike is in excellent running order before the trip. If you have servicing work done before leaving for Manali, make sure you have ridden your bike several times before departure, ensuring everything is working as it should be. We will be carrying tools and some spare parts for roadside repairs. Do not expect to be able to purchase any bicycle products while in Manali. You can also hire a mountain bike in Manali also charges Ranges from 600-900 per day. Make your bike booking in advance otherwise, you will not be able to get a suitable bike for you.

Please note: If you are hiring a bike you do not need to bring spares – just a pump, repair kit and a couple of inner tubes. You should bring the following with you as a minimum. Whilst not essential, it is a good idea that you familiarize yourself with how to carry out at least some basic repairs e.g. fixing a puncture, changing an inner tube. Naturally, our bike guide will always be happy to assist with any basic repairs, but due to the often remote nature of our trips, being able to carry out a simple repair can save time and inconvenience waiting for assistance.


How to Reach Manali:

Being one of the most charming hill stations in Himachal Pradesh, India. Manali is almost occupied by tourists from different parts of the country. Due to day by day growing tourism in Manali, This beautiful hill station is well interlinked with roads to different parts of the state. It's not connected by railway. Kiratpur Saheb in Punjab and Una in Himachal Pradesh are two railway stations around this place, But both of these railways stations are more than 200 kilometers away There is another narrow-gauge line at around 100 kilometers, which is located in Jogindernagar, but it's not recommended except in a scenario when you have enough time and want to experience toy train, which starts from Pathankot and ends at Jogindernagar. The nearest airport is at Bhuntar, located approximately 50 kilometers away from Manali. Domestic flights connect Bhuntar with Delhi and Chandigarh. Best way to reach Manali is to book a cab or Volvo bus from Delhi or Chandigarh. Volvo buses are quite comfortable and they charge from 1000-1600 Inr per seat depends upon tourist season. Most buses start their Journey from Delhi in evening around 5 to 10 pm and reach Manali in between 6 am to 12 Pm. You can check Bus availability Here. If you are bringing your own bike then you have to confirm with the bus operator before booking your seat. they will charge around 100 to 500 Inr.

Me and my sons 19 and 17 years, were desperate to do a cycling tour in India after our Nepal tour with Explore Himalaya.I was nervous doing this kind of trip in India. However, our guide Akshay had planned out the safest tour and he was very safety conscious. It was an enjoyable 8-day trip and though there were some nerve-wracking road rides, most of the trip was awesome with few to no traffic. Would definitely recommend Explore Himalaya to other travelers.

It was more beautiful than I had imagined it. Valley of flowers is simply a delight to the senses. I came to know about this trek through my friend circle. We got in touch with explorehimalaya.org and they arranged the whole trek for us in a jiffy. Uttrakhand is a home to most beautiful mountain peaks and I'm glad I have discovered the cream of it all. Kudos to the team and the support staff.
