Join us on this exciting charity challenge as we ride the tribal trails and royal pathways through India’s colourful “Land of the Kings” – Rajasthan. You can choose to support any one of our hospitals - just let us know which once you have registered.
 
Our Indian charity cycle challenge will provide us with an ‘off-the-beaten-track’ adventure, through some of the best hill and desert landscapes that Rajasthan has to offer. We’ll cover a total distance of 400km over 6 consecutive days in the saddle through this fascinating region of India. Experiencing India at it’s best on this charity bike ride, we’ll have opportunities to explore the amazing painted “havelis” (mansions) of Shekawati – a remote area where rich merchants once aimed to outdo each other by painting their homes in ever more exuberant styles. Time has largely stood still since this extravagant heyday, making this a fascinating area in which to hold this charity challenge.
 
From Shekawati we head further into rural Rajasthan, an area of stunning desert landscapes, dotted with villages of vibrant colour – a complete contrast to the world-renowned sights of Delhi, Jaipur and the Taj Mahal; with which we end our charity challenge!
 
There are two funding options for this challenge:
 
Option A - Minimum Sponsorship
 
You pay a registration fee of £299 then must raise a minimum sponsorship of £2700.  This amount covers your tour costs with the remaining money coming direct to your chosen hospital.  This may seem like a big sponsorship target but our team will be here to provide help and advice to ensure you reach your goal.
 
Option B - Self Fund
 
You pay a registration fee of £299 and then pay your own tour costs of £1349
 
Although there is no minimum sponsorship required, you can, if you wish raise additional funds in support of your chosen hospital.
