Tour Introduction


Our new bike traverse of Rajasthan is a medley of sights, sounds and other sensory stimulation, as we ride on backroads from Udaipur to the Taj Mahal in a little over a week. After a backstreets city tour by bike, we take the overnight train from Delhi to Udaipur.

Here, in the City of Lakes, we begin with a cycle tour amongst its fabulous landmarks. Then, we set off riding through the rolling Aravali Hills to Kumbhalgarh and the atmospheric lakeside town of Pushkar. Passing farmers working in the fields and the locals travelling to market by foot and oxcart, we get a true feel for the lifestyle here.

Throughout we have the luxury of constant back up from a support vehicle with a mechanic. Arriving at the ‘Pink City’ of Jaipur, we have a rest day to visit the famous landmarks including the fabulous Palace of the Winds and the imposing Amer Fort.

Continuing our traverse of these majestic lands, we journey to the Sariska National Park where we can have another afternoon off the bikes, as we set off on a game drive in search of the elusive tiger. The next stops on our 2-wheel journey are at the Bharatpur bird reserve and at the former Mughal capital of Fatehpur Sikri, before a short, final transfer to Agra.

Here, we walk from our hotel to make a dawn visit to the peerless Taj Mahal and also visit the very impressive Agra Fort, before transferring back to Delhi. If you are looking for a fun and at times quite frenetic biking adventure that’s jam-packed with Indian culture and history, then this is the perfect holiday for you.
