Discover India’s desert state by bike

Rajasthan has landscapes varying from green rolling hills to barren deserts.
The whole state is dotted with dramatic fortresses and the countryside is a
patchwork of villages and towns where we see the timelessness of rural India.
From the captivating Mehrangarh Fort at Jodhpur, the lakeside palace of
Udaipur, the holy town of Pushkar and onto the superb ‘pink city’ of Jaipur,
each place has its own story to tell. A fitting way to finish the trip is at
the magnificent Taj Mahal. Cycling is the perfect way to explore Rajasthan,
offering a fascinating insight into the traditional way of life here.

What’s included

* All breakfasts and 4 lunches

Food:
All breakfasts and 4 lunches included.

Breakfast on day 1 of the Land Only itinerary in not included as you should

approximately £5 (US) at the hotel in Jodhpur. You should allow at least
£15 (approx. US) per day for lunch and dinner. You can eat out very
cheaply in India, but if you go to the more expensive restaurants most of the

Cycling profile

Day 1

The group flight arrives in the afternoon. Those who have made their own
flight arrangements will join us at the hotel. The rest of the day is used to
assemble the bikes and explore locally before an evening briefing about our
cycling adventure.
*Standard Hotel*

Day 2

We start cycling early in the morning in order to get used to the Indian
weather. We have a short ride in the bus to the outskirts of Jodhpur, from
where we cycle on quiet roads on to Kailana Lake. From sunset point, we leave
the lake and cycle through an area of scrub bush where there is chance of
seeing Blue Bull and Wild Boar. We then cycle through huge sandstone mines.
The stone is used for building the traditional Jodhpur houses. We stop to see
a cow shelter, a place where unwanted street cows are well looked after by
well-meaning individuals or the government. After a stop for a local snack,
we climb up to Mehrangarh Fort. The views on the way up are well worth the
effort of the climb. We leave the bikes in the car park and have a guided
tour of the Fort. Jodhpur was founded by the Rajput chief Roa Jodha and was
formerly the capital of the State of Marwar. The city is surrounded by an
immense wall almost 10km in circumference and is dominated by the massive
fort that stands on a rocky hill commanding the surrounding desert. After the
tour of the fort, we walk down into the old city with great views of the blue
houses painted to distinguish them as those of Brahmins. We have time to
explore the old city before returning to our hotel.

*Standard Hotel 
*

Day 3

We start our day with a transfer of 92 km (approx. 2.5 hours) to Jatpura
circle. En route we can visit the interesting Omm Banna Bullet Temple, the
only temple on earth dedicated to a motor bike! From Jatpura circle we cycle
mostly on backroads with less traffic and a fascinating insight into rural
life. We pass through several villages and finally arrive at Ranakpur, where
we visit the stunning 15th Century Jain Temple. The main temple, beautifully
carved from marble, is dedicated to Adinath. It has 29 halls supported by
1444 pillars, each delicately carved with a different design. We then cycle
2km to our hotel. 
*Standard Hotel*

Day 4

We leave early and have a challenging uphill 15km ride through a magnificent
gorge. The road climbs, steeply in places, up through forested hills to a
small temple. From here we have a beautiful descent of 10 km to our bus. We
drive the rest of the way to Udaipur. Known as ‘The Pearl of Rajasthan’, the
‘City of Sunrise’ and ‘Venice of the East’, Udaipur is a beautiful place
regarded by both Indians and travellers as the most romantic city in India.
Situated on the east side of Lake Pichola, the main palace commands an
unsurpassed view across the shimmering lake to the dusty Aravalli Hills with
the luxurious Lake Palace hotel adding to the scene. Lake Pichola has two
islands, each with a palace to rival that on the mainland; Jag Mandir and Jag
Nivas (the latter is now the luxurious Lake Palace Hotel) rise out of their
own reflections in the waters of the lake. This afternoon we visit the
wonderful City Palace, still the home of Maharana.
*Standard Hotel*

Day 5

After breakfast we set off on the bikes and spend the morning exploring the
countryside around Udaipur. We leave the city and busy roads behind. First we
come to Dudh Talai, and a little further on we come to Lake Pichola, the main
lake in Udaipur. We cycle along the lake shore for a while to a 500 year old
Lord Shiva temple. We continue on quiet backroads past farmland and small
villages and head to Tiger Lake. According to locals many years ago there
were Tigers in the surrounding hills. Further on we have a chance to visit
Animal Aid, a local NGO run hospital for injured animals. We then ride to
Lake Fateh Sager where we have lunch overlooking the lake. We end the ride
back at the hotel and rest of the day is free for individual exploration, or
you can simply relax by the hotel pool. 
*Standard Hotel*

Day 6

It’s time to leave this beautiful city and turn north as we cycle to
Kumbhalgarh. The route stays away from the main road and follows a less
direct but quieter series of back roads and allows us to see the fascinating
rural life of India. It can be hot cycling in India but the vehicle support
will be on hand if required for a four-wheeled break. We arrive in
Kumbhalgarh for a late lunch and in the late afternoon there is a chance to
cycle to Kumbhalgarh Fort, a challenging 5km uphill ride (there is an option
to take a jeep). Kumbhalgarh has one of the finest examples of defensive
fortifications in Rajasthan with a lovely temple and palace with panoramic
views. 
*Standard Hotel*

Day 7

It’s back to the desert scenery today as we make our way to the holy town of
Pushkar. Our route today follows rural backroads to the main highway from
where we transfer in the vehicle. Surrounded by the desert, the little town
is a holy site on the fringes of a lake. Before going to the hotel we visit
this bustling town, which boasts one of the only Brahma temples in India. The
bustling bazaar is also interesting. 

*Comfortable Hotel*
PUSHKAR CAMEL FAIR DEPARTURES: The itinerary for these departures is slightly
amended to spend two nights in Pushkar and one night in Sariska N.P, this is
done in order to maximise time at the Camel Fair. Accommodation in Pushkar
during the festival departure will be provided in en suite Swiss Cottage
Tents (canvas tents designed to emulate Swiss cottages) with attached
bathroom and all meals will be included.

Day 8

We leave Pushkar on our bikes travelling through desert backroads and small
villages to the town of Rupnagar; a marble working centre. There is the
option to extend the ride by another 34km to the Naraina railway crossing,
from where we transfer by vehicle to Jaipur. 
*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 9

For those who are up early we have an optional heritage ride around the
wonderful Pink city.  A great way to discover the life of Jaipur is cyling
through its fascinating narrow laneways. Passing havelis (private mansions)
and sacred temples we will head for the majestic Albert Hall which was built
to welcome the Prince of Wales on his visit during the 1870s.  Along the way
we wil stop at some of the popular food stalls where you can sample what the
locals enjoy for breakfast. After the ride you will have time back at the
hotel to freshen up before we head out for a wonderful day of sightseeing. 
We will visit the majestic Amber Fort and enjoy the fine museum within the
City Palace, former residence of the Maharaja.  A trip to Jaipur must
include a photo stop at the iconic Hawa Mahal, or Palace of the winds. This
city is the centre of many handicrafts such as woven rugs, carpets, printed
cloth, semi-precious stones and leather ware.  During our stay there will be
time to visit the markets and possibly pick up a treasure to remind you of
your stay.  

Optional cycle approx. 12 km / 7 miles.
*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 10

A combination of cycling and transfer as we leave the ‘the pink city’ behind
us and return to rural India. We transfer to Jamwa Ramgarh and then cycle to
Sariska via Pratap Garh and through the beautiful landscape of Aravali foot
hills. 
*Standard Hotel*

Day 11

Before breakfast we have an early morning game drive. We use open jeeps to
take our morning game drive into the park. The park itself is very beautiful,
interesting to explore and there is an abundance of wildlife. Leopard
sighting is a possibility, besides Deer, wild boar, Antelope, Jackal, hyena,
Jungle cat and other wildlife. A large variety of bird species are also found
here. We return to hotel for a late breakfast and in the afternoon there is
the option to do a cycle ride to the near-by Siliseth Lake. The ride is
approx. 36km and takes us on backroads through rural villages and farmland.
We can have tea at the Lake Palace Hotel with stunning views across the lake
to the surrounding Aravali hills. For those who don’t want to cycle they
can enjoy the garden and swimming pool at the hotel. 

Optional cycle approx. 36km / 22 miles.
*Standard Hotel*

Day 12

After breakfast we begin the day’s ride from our hotel to Muhwa where we then
take a short transfer to our lunch spot. Another short transfer takes us to
Bharatpur N.P. This park is renowned for its UNESCO World Heritage listed
bird sanctuary – the Keoladeo Ghana National Park. This entire region was
originally semi arid and only received rainfall during the monsoon season.
The Maharaja of Bharatpur diverted water from a nearby irrigation canal and
it was converted into a bird sanctuary in 1956. On arrival in Bharatpur we
visit the bird sanctuary on our bikes, home to an array of egrets, ducks,
coots, storks, kingfishers, owls, eagles and harriers. There are now over 360
species of birds to be found here. 
*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 13

In the morning we leave Bharatpur and cycle on backroads passing through
Fatehpur Sikri, the emperor Akbar’s deserted royal city.  Later we transfer
to Agra in time to see the sunset over the stunning Taj Mahal.  This
romantic monument was built by the Moghul Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his
beloved wife, Mumtaz Mahal, who died in 1631. The Taj is serenely beautiful
and never fails to amaze a first time visitor; the white marble exterior
changes colour according to the position of the sun during the day and is
matched by the rich interior detail. 
*Standard Hotel*

Day 14

We set off for our drive to Delhi arriving in the afternoon when we check
into our hotel. The rest of the day is free to explore this fascinating city.
Recommended sites are Humayun’s tomb, India Gate, Jama Masjid and Raj Ghat.
You are free to explore on your own or if you’d like a guided tour your
leader will organise this for you. We will have our last night group dinner
in one of the local restaurants close to the hotel.
*Comfortable Hotel*

Day 15

For those who are on the flight inclusive package we depart for Delhi airport
in the morning for the day flight back to London. The arrangements for those
not flying with the group ends after check out.

Cycling through Rajasthan

Summary:
A fantastic whirlwind assault on the senses – incredible sights, smells and
wonderful children waving us on throughout the villages.
Delhi was very smoggy and choked to death with traffic, but still amazing
views from the coach window as we battled the congestion, but after the
overnight train, the visuals start.

Rating: 4

Question:
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:
We were invited, or press ganged into a wedding, which was a real feast for
the eyes, to see how a diiferent culture celebrate here – horses, parades,
fireworks and entire banquet filled the hotel grounds.

Of course the Taj is an excellent feat in building, but Udaipur palace
interior was filled with impressive craftsmans skills. Though ultimately,
its the people, the smiles, the friendliness that catches your heart

Question:
What did you think of your group leader?

Answer:
Manu and Rigsin were exceptional, the knowledge of India and its people, a
question was never unanswered. Whilst we were there, we had the problem of
the ‘black money’ – which caused a huge problem for everybody, and given the
circumstances Manu helped out wherever he could, and even beyond his duties.
Ali and Ramu always helped with water and the bike maintenance, and Mr Singh
an amazing driver through those conditions

Question:
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Answer:
Check the weather before you go – it was much hotter than the average
temperature on Exodus website
If you see something, buy it, as youll never have the chance to buy it again
– we found Johdpur market (clock tower) wonderful, but held out for Jaipur,
which was disappointing and a very long day on and off the bus.
Its a great holiday, but be prepared for non stop adventure – rest when you
get back home!!!!

Question:
Is there anything else you would like to add?

Answer:
The Jaipur day out was laboured, too much to see in a short space of time,
therefore withered with the guide, as you really had to listen hard to
understand, plus added trips to the factories, were not for me
Udaipur looked wonderful, but no chance to walk around as on a very tight
schedule, we cycled, then straight out to eat later that evening

Food at times went from fantastic at the lakeside in Udaipur, to very
expensive roadside cafes, and uninteresting western style restaurants

A great 2 week trip visiting many cities, Palaces and Forts in Rajasthan.
Great accommodation, variety of activities and fun guides. Cycling is varied

What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:
Cannot say just one as many days were varied and fascinating places to visit.
Agra, for Taj Mahal and the Agra Fort. Ranakpur was incredible,
Jodhpur,Jaipur, Udaipur and Pushkar all different….

Question:
What did you think of your group leader?

Answer:
Bhupesh ( Boo) and Anand (AK ) were very amazing! Very knowledgeable, fun and
went out of their way to ensure we had all that we needed!( Including
pharmacy, iPhone shop for smashed phone, birthday fireworks treats!)

Question:
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Answer:
There is some time for shopping built into the trip, however not specifically
in your free time, which might be better as not everyone in the trip found
this time well spent…

Question:
Is there anything else you would like to add?

Answer:
Standard of accommodation was one of the best for this type of trip and very
well received. Would like to see this more often!

Cycling Through Rajasthan

Summary:
Enjoyed it a lot – amazing forts and palaces and mostly good cycling (we had
one day on really bad roads I could have done without).
Only criticism was lack of free time on our own. As we were a small group (6)
it was hard not to join in all the time. On the Kerala trip we had whole
days free in Cochin and Varkala but there was nothing similar on this trip.
I did get tired of the food – chili with everything.

Question:
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:

I loved Udaipur and the hotel there.

Question:
What did you think of your group leader?

Answer:
Very competent and caring.

Question:
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Answer:
Take your own saddle – women especially.

Question:
Is there anything else you would like to add?

Answer:
Some, in fact all, the local guides were not especially interesting – their
English was generally laboured. They often managed to say a lot of words
without clearly conveying much. I do appreciate that we should be using local
guides.
More detailed and accurate notes on where we were going would have been
helpful. The names of our hotels? in case we got lost.
Advice on background reading? I picked up a second hand Rough Guide to India
but not really appropriate.

Cycling in Rajasthan

Summary:
A fantastic experience that lets you get up close to the real India with all
its sights, smells and sounds. A great way to have an active holiday whilst
a packed itinerary allows you to see many of the iconic sights of India.

Rating: 5

Question:
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:
Riding through the villages where all the children would come out to line the
streets and wave. Wherever we stopped a crowd would gather round to inspect
both us and the bikes. I guess strangers, and especially European strangers
are a very rare sight in some of these places. Whilst it does take a bit of
getting used to, everyone was always really friendly.

Question:
What did you think of your group leader?

Answer:
Everything worked like clockwork, which given my previous experience of India
was probably a minor miracle and a testament to the efficiency of our group
leaders. Nice guys, always accommodating, flexible and willing to help.

Question:
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Answer:
It can be smoggy in Delhi (they appear to have a real problem with this these
days) and it can be dusty in places on the road so do ensure you have
something to cover your mouth. A buff kept round my neck worked well for me.
Cycling in the cities is not for the fainthearted. Whilst there is a
notional drive on the left rule, Indian traffic, people and animals come at
you from all directions, and it can be very busy, although generally slow
moving. Some element of confidence on a bike will help greatly.

Question:
Is there anything else you would like to add?

Answer:
If you don’t like curry you may have a problem. Most of our group got a
touch of Delhi belly at some point, but nothing serious, so do take plenty of
pills with you.

A great mixture of cycling and sight seeing. A great deal was packed in so
not one for those wanting a relaxing holiday. Once again Exodus combine well

Question:
What was the most inspirational moment of your trip?

Answer:
There was more than one! The Taj Mahal, the fort at Kumbhalgarh, Pushkar (if
you stay off the special Lassi’s!!) but above all the assault on the senses
that is the cmlexity of India.

Question:
What did you think of your group leader?

Answer:
Our leader, Anand Kapil worked his socks off to make sure we got the very
best from this trip. He was really well supported by Sunil and the ‘boys’
(cycle mechanic and the drivers). Top marks to Anand and the team!

Question:
Do you have any advice for potential travellers?

Answer:
If you like some cycling and sightseeing, then include this tri on your list.
It is moderate for cycling (but you can burn the calories) but action packed
given the itneery. You will come away with a real feel for what makes
Rajasthan tick!

Answer:
Would seem more sensible to start holiday from central hotel and finish at
the hotel nearer the airport.
Need at least one free day ( Udaipur would be perfect )
More shopping opportunities.

Activity Levels


Activity Levels range from Leisurely to Tough, the grading takes into account the daily cycling distances and terrain, as well as any technical riding skill required. We also consider the number of cycling days as there can be a cumulative affect from tiredness on a longer trip and the type of accommodation used, as this can also influence your day to day recovery.

If you are in any doubt, please give us a call on +353-1-607 9900 or email us.


Activity level 1 - Leisurely Activity level 1: Leisurely

If you can ride a bike and enjoy gentle exercise, these are an ideal introduction to a cycling holiday. No routes are entirely flat, so expect some short climbs and descents. Maximum daily height gain is approximately 250 metres and daily distances rarely exceed 50kms (32 miles), any longer days are often optional.


Activity level 3 - Moderate Activity level 3: Moderate

Most people who enjoy a weekend riding at home will enjoy a Moderate trip. You need to be in good health and reasonably fit. Ideal for occasional cyclists, or as a more relaxed trip for fitter riders. Moderate off-road trips require no previous experience. Distances rarely exceed 70kms (43 miles) per day.


Activity level 5 - Challenging Activity level 5: Challenging

For any ride at this level, fitness is important. Challenging trips require confidence in your ability and physical condition. They are equivalent to an extended period of cycling at home. Previous mountain biking experience is essential for Challenging off road trips as they will involve some technical riding.


Activity level 7 - Tough Activity level 7: Tough

Previous experience of the cycling style or surface is a must as these routes have long cycling days and tougher terrain on both road and off road trips. You need complete confidence in your fitness and technical ability to cope with difficult or steep terrain, rough surfaces and longer distances. Ideal for those seeking a challenge!


Split grades

In order to provide more accuracy, where a trip falls between two grades we use an intermediate or ‘split’ grade, for example 2: Leisurely/Moderate.
