overview

This stunning 350km cycle challenge takes place in Kerala, one of the least discovered jewels of India! Sign up for yourself or to fundraise for a charity and experience great group camaraderie, fantastic leadership and our unmatched support leading up to the challenge. 

The sun bleached seashore, incessant blue waves, green coconut groves and lagoons are all part of the essence of Kochi, our starting point for the challenge. As we move westwards on our bicycles we see more of the interior with its lush land of rivers flowing through hills and paddy fields and emptying themselves into the backwaters. And finally we arrive at the once far off dark blue mountains, with their hill stations and cooler temperatures. Only when you have been to Kerala can you understand why it is named "Gods Own Country".

This adventure begins as soon you register; you will receive access to your trip App, which includes all of the challenge documentation you'll need to prepare. If you are fundraising, we will sort out all charity formalities for you. As this is a Land Only event, you're responsible for booking your own flights to Cochin, although we can help with airport transfers!
