Describing her ability and skill ,Sood said that Zoe started cycling on a road bike while attending university but soon she felt the need to go beyond the tarmac.

To better acclimatize to the single track conditions of mountain biking, Zoe shifted to fatter MTB tires and has never looked back since.

Shifting continents, Zoe is planning to move to New Zealand by the end of this year.

Dusty trails, lung busting climbs, epic descents, panoramic mountain views, like minded people and lots of curry!!!”
