The rural cycling tour was conceptualised to experience rural life through the eyes of a friendly
local. On this bike tour, you will plug in to the local culture and explore the authentic off-beat
path.  Stay with a local, sample their cuisine and experience true Indian hospitality.
The pace is relaxed, and you will feel, you are on a casual bike ride with friends. Best of all, if
you don’t own a bike, we will arrange a Multi Terrain lightweight bicycle for you.
You will cycle a total distance of 80 km over 2 days. The tar road right up to the village is mostly
smooth and very scenic. Short breaks will be taken en route, giving you lots of photo
opportunities. Sign up today for a new adventure!8655261360 / info@grassroutes.co.in
