Rajasthan Cycling Challenge

Day 1: Delhi to Bharatpur
On arrival at Delhi International Airport, we will meet you and assist with the vehicle transfer to Bharatpur - the eastern gateway to Rajastan. It is famous for the Keoladeo Ghana National Park; a World Heritage site is one of the finest water-bird sanctuaries in the world. Its shallow, fresh water marsh attracts thousands of migratory birds. After we reach our resort we will have an opportunity to visit the National Park on cycle rickshaws. 
Day 2: Visit to Agra
Today we will visit one of the most awesome and extravagant monuments ever built - the Taj Mahal. It was constructed by Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his beloved wife in 1631-1653 with thousands of semi-precious stones inlaid. The rest of the day can be spend exploring the city of Agra, before we return to the hotel for an event briefing followed by dinner. We will have cycle fitting session either on the first day or the second day depending on the time. 
Day 3: Karauli
Today we will have an initial transfer in coaches to the start point of cycling at Bayana. We will start cycling from here and pass through many small villages as we can see and experience the way of life around this region. The route is scenic passing through agricultural fields and is free of traffic until we reach Masalpur after which we will be passing through the busy town to make it to the Palace. 
Day 4: Rathambore
We will continue cycling to Ranthambore National Park, one of the prime examples of Project Tiger’s conservation efforts in Rajasthan & a favourite haunt of wildlife buffs & professional wildlife photographers from around the world. The park is famous for its tigers, one of the most magnificent animals of India, which has long fascinated people with its awesome power and beautifully striped coat. There are also many other species to see including samba, cheetah, wild boar, leopard, sloth bear, jackal and hyena among others. The park itself covers 1334sq km and its scenery is beautiful. 
Day 5: Talabgaon
Today your destination will be Talabgaon, a city that inherited the rich culture of the Rajasthan region, reflecting the ancient Indian way of life. There are rich and varied cultures within the villages which are often depicted as symbolic of the state. This region is rich in music and dance culture with its own distinct style that plays a major part of the local traditions and celebrations. We will be staying overnight at a 200 year old castle. 
Day 6: Dausa
Today our destination will be Dausa, an ancient town of archaeological significance. The city which was the first capital of this region is now a silent spectator of the bygone glory with an old fort in one side and small havelis dotted all over the terrain. Experience the stunning countryside of Rajasthan as we cycle through these vibrant villages to make it our hotel for an overnight rest. 
Day 7: Jaipur
Today will be the last day of our cycling and also the shortest. By now we would be well accustomed to our saddles and should be able to swiftly make it to Ramgarh hunting lodge, our finish line for the day. After our brief celebration and a scrumptious lunch, we head towards the vibrant capital of Rajasthan and popularly known as the ‘Pink City’. 
Day 8 : Free Day at Jaipur
We have a full day to explore the fascinating city of Jaipur. For things to see and do, you need at least a lifetime in Jaipur. In the heart of the old city, is the City Palace, an incredibly well preserved and interesting palace to view with museums and artefacts. Jaipur is the place to shop until you drop, you cannot beat its variety. There are many handicrafts ranging from papier-mâché puppets to exquisitely carved furniture. Jaipur is well known for precious and semi-precious gems, marble statues, costume jewellery and textile prints are other specialities. You can shop in the Johri Bazaar selling local handicrafts, jewellery and sweets. There is a timeless appeal to Jaipur's colourful bazaars. You will have some time in Jaipur to explore the city or shop.
