Shimla: To take all inquisitive mountain bike riders on ‘a trail like no other’, Being Out There is organizing a two-day ESCAPE – MTB Ride from Shimla to Chandigarh on 4th and 5th May, 2013.
The weekend ride from Shimla to Chandigarh will be a 150kms fun and testing ride through forest trails and back country roads with overnight camping.
The thrilling ride will begin at 9:00 am on the 4th from Peterhoff hotel Shimla. Being Out There, to make the ride mysteriously exciting, has kept the route secret.
However, Hill Post learns that after pedaling their way through dense Deodar forests and back country roads, cyclists will cover almost 70km on the first day before halting for an overnight camp in forest area.
From the campsite cyclists will hit the track back at 7:00 am on 5th morning and riding through the foothills of the Shivalik Hills and the Morni hills will finish their journey at Sukhna Lake side at 17:00 hrs (5 pm) in Chandigarh.
Event organizer and Production head at Being Out There, Dhananjay Ahluwalia said “The ride is almost all downhill with a few gradual climbs.” “It is a ride, a course that will resonate a long time to come”, he added.
Mountain Biking is an awesome way to relish the exciting outdoors, so collect your cycling gear and hit the wonderful countryside in the vestiges of the Kalka – Shimla highway for Rs 3,300/- (support vehicles, mechanic support, nutrition and camping included).
