We cycle 220km through a historic and beautiful area, Rajasthan, Northern India. Rajasthan is known for its characteristic painted houses, old forts and maharajah's palaces. Trip highlights include the pink city of Jaipur, Ramthambore National Park - home to tigers - and the old abandoned city of Fatehpur Sikri, before celebrating our achievements at India’s most iconic monument, the Taj Mahal.
India offers a broad diversity of people, landscapes and wildlife, with a mix of colourful cultures and sense of history at every turn. From the most serene landscapes to vibrant, noisy cities – an unforgettable experience!
