Taj Mahal Cycle Challenge
If you’re looking for an exciting challenge that will test your endurance and allow you to raise funds for your charity at the same time then look no further than our Taj Mahal Cycle Challenge. The Taj Mahal Cycle Challenge is also an amazing opportunity to experience the real India and interact with the locals at handlebar level by pedalling the rural backroads. With an average of 80km of cycling a day this challenge requires an excellent level of fitness to ensure you reach our goal – the spectacular Taj Mahal.
Along with the cycle challenge, the itinerary provides a perfect opportunity to experience India’s famous ‘Golden Triangle’ cities of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. It is likely however that your strongest memories will come from discovering village India, the real India. The Taj Mahal Cycle Challenge will take you along the quieter country roads through rarely visited villages, temples and stopping on the way to visit the Keoladeo Bird Sanctuary and ancient city of Fatephur Sikri. Combine this with the magnificent Taj Mahal and the ancient desert town of Pushkar, this will surely provide the challenge of a lifetime!
