A Cycling Tour to explore the Colorful Village life of Rajasthan.

We start riding from the outskirts of Jaipur to Samode Palace. The Palace, built in the 17 century by the rulers of the Amber kingdom (now Jaipur). Above all, the Indo-Saracen architecture of the palace and the hospitality of the people here are simply spellbinding.

The Adventurous Aravallis

Nahargarh Biological Park, situated amidst the Aravali mountain range is now among the most important places to visit around Jaipur.

We ride through the Nahargarh Hills towards the scenic Sisiyawas valley through some of the most  beautiful landscapes in the heart of Rajasthan. Moreover, cycling along unexplored country roads through mustard fields is an indigenous way of fencing the fields.

The Rural India Ride

Enjoy and admire the landscape on two wheels with a mix of everything that India has to offer to a traveler. Also the mighty forts, majestic palaces, the abundant Havelis and Rajasthan Village life. The village folk is performing their arts full of vibrant colors and traditions of one the most culturally rich people in the world.
The melancholy of the landscape elevates as the lakeside is brought to life with the glory of the rising sun. To sum up, traversing through this “royal” state of Rajasthan on a bicycle is an exhilarating excursion.

    Great Biking Tour!

    Myself, my wife and my children (15 and 13 years) did this bicycle tour one morning during a recent visit to Jaipur. The equipment was outstanding and our guide Umesh was excellent. He was patient and very knowledgable. The biking included some road biking and off-road biking as well. More

    Fantastic way to better understand a tiny bit more of Rajasthani rural life

    We opted for the village cycling tour, a whole day activity which starts on the edge of the city. Picked up from our hotel at 6am, we drove around half an hour to the west and started on our ride. Umesh patiently and knowledgeably explained everything to us as we trundled through various villages – we stopped at a ‘Cow Rescue Centre’, a sanctuary for non-productive or hurt cows, where we pitched in to some of the daily tasks of the staff, as well as being offered delicious chai and sweetened yoghurt. more

    No better way to see Jaipur. A wonderful experience.

    We have just completed 3 wonderful days with Umesh and the team. Khush arranged our trip and made some great additions. We started on day 1 with a heart pumping cycle up to Nahargarth Fort. Day 2 was the Village cycling safari and day 3 was our transfer by bike from Japipur, a 33K cross county ride to the Samode Palace. more

    Fantastic bike tour around the villages of Rajasthan!

    You must make time to do this tour!! We had a wonderful day cycling from Jaipur to Sariska through the villages of Rajasthan. The route was great, and Khushal, Singh and the support crew were amazing from the moment I put in a request, to when they left us at our hotel in Sariska. more

    Village cycle safari

    Kushal guided my wife and I on a nice ride through the countryside. We really enjoyed stopping at a home along the way to meet a family and were lucky enough to wish another couple a happy wedding. source
