DAY 3

Bharatpur - 50 km

After an early bike fitting today we have a short transfer to Vichupura, where we start on a stretch of countryside road with very little traffic and certainly no tourists! We have a hearty packed lunch at a picturesque stop along the route followed by an afternoon ride on secondary roads, through villages and past ancient temples. Our hotel this evening is in Bharatpur, a bird-watchers paradise, with an optional cycle-rickshaw ride to the Keoladeo National Park, one of the finest Indian water-bird sanctuaries for indigenous bird species.

Ranthambore - 110 km

We rise early again today for a long cycle, departing directly from our hotel towards Gangapur, a town situated on the Delhi-Mumbai railway line.

There are great quality roads all the way to the Tiger Den resort in Ranthambore where we sleep tonight.

DAY 6

Lalsot - 75 km

For those that wish, there will be an optional early morning safari into Ranthambore Tiger reserve, a once in a lifetime opportunity to see this endangered animal. We get back on the road for another spectacular day of cycling, this time through more arid terrain. We continue along sections of typically rural road before finally arriving at our camp site in a beautiful setting against the hills, next to the village of Lalsot.

DAY 7

Jaipur - 57 km

For our last day we cycle through an arid area and a short cycle along dirt roads. The beauty of today is that we will hardly see any traffic along our journey as we make our way towards Jaipur, one of the most important cities of Rajasthan. We cycle through authentic villages and past a beautiful lake, home to crocodiles. We finish our amazing challenge with a lunch at Ramgarh before transferring for the final few kilometers into Jaipur. This evening we celebrate with a classic Indian meal to mark the end of an amazing challenge and sleep well in our comfortable Jaipur hotel.
