Who can do this tour?

The Rajasthan Bike trail is a moderate intensity tour and ideal for a habitual cyclist. The vistas are pristine and culturally rich and the trail in Rajasthan is a mix of gentle climbs, steady descents, combined with plenty of flat roads that makes it a delight for a biking enthusiast. Cyclists should be in relatively overall good physical shape with at least a moderate degree of cycling experience. Being physically fit will be a huge asset but as the tour is fully supported and a support vehicle is always close, if needed. We will be cycling through off terrain paths in parts, prior medium to long (50km to 80km) distance cycling is recommended, if not one must make the effort to put in some practice rides before joining the trail.

Tour Inclusions

Some of the spaces are off the “touristy” route and take you through the rich history of the Rajputs, Bishnoi community and many other prominent historical and cultural aspects of the region.

This 11 day-expedition begins in Jaipur and ends in Udaipur. This includes visiting some of the “must-see” palaces and forts, along with experiences that connect you as a traveller with the local people and their way of life. The bicycling leg of this tour covers up to 400km, through villages with rolling and flat terrains.

Difficulty Level: Moderately challenging due the long distances.

Preparedness – Physical & Mental

Our Rajasthan Bike Trail is a good blend of food, nature, culture, history and real-world experiences of Rajasthan giving you a unique experience of “The Land of Maharajas” on a cycle and by foot. Whether you are a seasoned cyclist or a regular city commuter, this trail has a good combination of challenging climbs to rolling hills through country-side roads, villages, forts and palaces; with enough opportunities for you to trail leisurely and interact with the locals.

Group Traveller

I had gone on a Rajasthan Bike tour with the Unventured team in December 2017. It was a group of 8 cyclists and 2 Unventured team members (Gurudeep and Tejaswini).
It was a 11 day tour covering 7 cities.
I would like to highlight the following points about the tour:
• The Unventured team had a complete and 100% idea of the terrain, the hotels, the restaurants we stopped at and the bikes we rented.
• The accommodation chosen was very comfortable. Hotels in 3 cities were nicely done boutique hotel type properties
• The best part of the tour was that we don’t bike on the highways and that ensures safety to a great extent.
• The dhabas(local resturaunts) we stopped at for lunches had good local food.
• The cycling used to end by early evening and post that we had ample time to do sightseeing and relax. It was a good mix of cycling and sightseeing
I have been on a few bike tours with other tour operators earlier. But the knowledge these guys have about their bikes and it’s maintenance is beyond comparison.
I would definitely recommend Unventured team not just for the Rajasthan tour but for all the tours they organise.
