About this Cycle Tour

A beguiling land of forts and palaces, Rajasthan will be sure to enchant you with its splendors. Riding through the former princely states will provide an insight into a majestic world as Rajasthan remains a land still connected to its regal past. The vibrancy and colours of Rajasthan will be ever present on this amazing cycle journey as we ride from the once powerful Raj state of pink-hued Jaipur, through the sandy-coloured land dotted by the vivid splashes of turbans and the skirts of villagers, to the blue city of Jodphur and end at the alabaster 'City of Lakes', Udaipur.

Day 1

Arrive in Jodhpur airport and transfer to the hotel. We meet for dinner and a trip briefing.

Day 2

We tour Jodhpur, including Meherangarh Fort, after which you are free to explore the town and lunch on your own. In late afternoon, we have an orientation ride around Chandelao.

Day 3

We ride through small towns and farms; terrain gets drier and more arid. We stay in Luni, known as a hub of artisans who possess skills passed down from generation to generation.

Day 4

Following on a road parallel to the Luni River, the terrain gets more arid, covered by acacia and prosopis trees. We may see the rare Black Buck antelope that is luckily common in this area. We overnight in a big house owned decedents of local aristocracy who share their experiences.

Day 5

Today's ride is for the remote Bhawrani village. The road is mainly dirt tracks with some unique sites. We end the day with dinner on a sand hill outside town with sights of nomadic herder camps. Then we head back to Rakhi for one more night with the Singh family.

We head towards Bhawrani town, riding through the farmlands and old stone quarries.

Leaving the dry Thar desert behind, we ride into the greener area of the south east, where the Aravalli mountains come into view. We overnight by the foothills at Jojawar.

Day 8

We loop around the Aravalli foothills near the village, exploring remote villages and shepherd settlements.

Day 9

The Aravali range will always be on our left as we ride towards the Jain temples of Ranakpur where every of the 1,444 marble pillars are carved in exquisite detail.

Our Riding Rajasthan experience was very positive. Our guides, Jehan and Felix, enhanced the enjoyment for our group by keeping us informed, entertained and safe the entire time. We've had excellent tour guides in the past but Jehan and Felix stand out and were a pleasure to deal with over our two week trip.

  1. Our guide - Jehan was fantastic! He was competent, knowledgable, authentic and so enthusiastic. Moreover, he has a wonderful gentle sense of humour which became increasingly evident throughout the tour, both through his anecdotes of life, history and culture of India but also in the manner in which he interacted with all the guests on the tour.
  2. The other guests (a couple from the UK) who were a joy to be with for almost two weeks. We shared the 'journey' in so many ways but always in good spirits with lots of friendly banter.
  3. Accommodation - All great with a few through the middle of the tour being exceptional.
  4. The route - Th cycling days averaged 60km with one day of 90km. Mostly flat terrain but there was one day of 50km riding that was quite strenuous. However, with the cohesion of the group, the riding on all days was enjoyed. Most particularly, I enjoyed the morning rides through villages where day to day life unfolded before our eyes.
  5. The food - Much to Jehan's credit, we enjoyed a rich array of coal delights for every meal. To my knowledge, nobody experienced the slightest touch of 'Delhi Belly'. On the contrary, the dishes were always fresh and served with complete hygiene.
  6. The extra bits that make all the difference:
  7. great bikes that were perfect for the conditions
  8. fantastic bus/support vehicle with two team members that were very friendly and efficient
  9. great pre tour information and liaison particularly via heaps of interaction with Penchudee who has always been friendly an efficient in responding to my queries
