5 Must Ride Routes - North India

  • Improve your Cycling Experience
5 MUST RIDE ROUTES - PART 1 NORTH INDIA

With ‘bicycle tourism’ gaining popularity in India, we have put together a series of must ride routes across India. While covering the entire country is a dream to many, we have broken this down into 4 parts - with top routes in the North, West, East and South India. Read on for information on must ride routes in North India.

MANALI-LEH

“Dramatically changing landscapes that will have you mesmerized.”

If you are a ‘mountain person’ and have a fair bit of experience on your bicycle, this route is your calling. Starting at Manali, this route covers an approximate distance of 475 kilometers, traversing through some of the country’s highest passes. Though just 475 kilometers, this route will require a minimum of 10 days to cover, given the terrain and that you will need to acclimatize as you ride. This route will take you through the world’s highest transit camping area, at Pang. Should you have a couple days extra, you can go on to Khardung La pass, just beyond Leh - to ride on the world’s highest motorable pass (18,830feet above sea level!). The ideal time to cover this route is in the warmer months, between May and Mid October. This road closes in the winters owing to snow.

SRINAGAR-LEH

“NH 1D all the way!”

An absolute picturesque route traversing through historically significant towns of the Kashmir Valley, the world’s coldest inhabited village and beautiful passes and meadows! The distance between Srinagar and Leh is about 420 kilometers, and the most common route taken is through Sonmarg, Dras, Kargil and Lamayuru. This route is ideal for intermediate- experienced cyclists and can be covered in 5-7 days. Mostly wide, well-laid roads make this a good option for recreational riders as well - slightly challenging, but totally worth it! The ideal time to cover this route would be between April and end-October.

DELHI-AGRA

“Visit places you’ve read about!”

The distance between Delhi and Agra is about 285 kilometers, and can be covered in a couple of days. On this route you will pass the iconic towns of Fatehpur-Sikri and Mathura. If you’re interested in Indian History, you can stop over at Fatehpur Sikri and check out the ‘Buland Darwaza’ which on a clear day is visible from the highway, too. The route is mostly on flat terrain with a combination of head and tail winds. The ideal time to cover this route would be in the cooler months between October and March.

REGAL RAJASTHAN

“A royal experience”

The Aravallis make riding across Rajasthan an experience of a lifetime. With rolling terrain and dynamic landscapes. There are a couple of routes around Rajasthan that are worth exploring on two wheels for an unparalleled experience.

  • AJMER - PUSHKAR - JAIPUR - BHARATPUR: A 350 kilometre route that is a well balanced combination of nature and rich-culture. Starting at Ajmer, a short ride will take you to the iconic town of Pushkar, known for its annual camel fair. Moving on towards Jaipur, the pink city, known for magnificent monuments and forts. To make the most of your bicycle tour, spend a few days in Jaipur and explore the city on your bicycle. Finally, make your way to Bharatpur - a quaint town famous for its bird sanctuary that is home to several migratory birds all year round. Take your bicycle into the Bharatpur Bird Sanctuary and be one with nature! The best time to do this route would be in the cooler months, September - March.
  • JODHPUR - UDAIPUR - MOUNT ABU: This route covers a distance of 415 kilometers, with a combination of varying terrains, including climbs, rolling and flat terrain. Experience all the grandeur of Jodhpur and Udaipur and finish in the serene surroundings of Mount Abu! The ideal time to cover this route would be between September and February.
  • Conclusion

    When it comes to bicycle touring, I feel that you get to fully experience all that a place has to offer by spending a day or two there and exploring it on your bicycle. If you are crunched on time, you can pick a shorter route and thereby spend less time getting from one place to another. Touring on a bicycle is an experience that will be etched in your memory forever if done right, so remember to plan well, and make the most of your time on the saddle! Happy Riding!
