Amazing ride through breathtaking landscapes

A memorable ride with undoubtedly tough sections that will test your fitness and determination to the limit. The spectacular landscapes and sheer challenge of getting to the top of those passes kept me going.

MANALI TO LEH RIDE

Some real challenging cycling in an unbelievably beautiful part of the world, that can best be experienced on a bike. The scenery changes daily, and it would be difficult to find a more amazing landscape to cycle through anywhere else in the world. You get a real sense of achievement making it over the top of the passes, and seeing other group members win their own battles. You really need to do this!

MANALI TO LEH RIDE

A trip of a lifetime. Agonisingly hard at times on the way up. Joyful and endless descents. A challenging but totally amazing trip. The scenery on the clear days was stunning.

MANALI TO LEH RIDE

This is the ultimate cycling challenge with progressively higher passes, stunning Indian Himalyan panoramas  fast-paced, white knuckle downhills and diverse culture. Mountain bikes have the edge over any other form of transport for this route and, although the weather is famously unpredictable, we were blessed with blue skies and warming rays above 5000m entire ride. Expertly led and the group more resembled a team by the end with great moments of comraderie ontop of the passes.

MANALI TO LEH RIDE

It is important to understand in advance just how physically gruelling this trip is. I cycle 500-600 km per month but only managed to cycle up 2 of the 6 passes without assistance, and had to sit out one day completely due to a combination of altitude, heat stroke and diarrhoea. The scenery is great but you spend a lot of time looking at your front wheel.

MANALI TO LEH RIDE

Our trip was reversed due to a land slip near Manali to give chance for the road to be repaired so we flew into Leh and cycled to Manali.  This is a classic trip along one of the worlds most awesome roads.  Not for the faint hearted - cycling days were long and the temperature varies from boiling hot to freezing and can change rapidly, and of course the altitude makes it feel that much harder, but a must do for anyone who loves cycling and is confident about their fitness.
