This is one interesting race format that one must try out. The Rugged Sahyadri is a self-supported adventure race that has a mix of mountain biking, trekking & navigation. The race is held in outskirts of Kolhapur and the route will be revealed only at the time of bib collection to keep up the element of surprise till the very last moment. As the name suggests it is an off-road race where the participants will peddle and trek through gut wrenching uphills, exciting downhills, village backroads, thick vegetation, jeep tracks, single track, muddy trails, bike& hike and savor real mountain biking. This is not a casual cycling tour. It’s a self-supported race. Rugged Sahyadri brought the cycling culture back in Kolhapur and the event is much awaited year after year and attracts huge crowds from every corner of India. Prestigious brands like Radio Mirchi, SLK Global, Dena Bank, Star Group, Fiat Aaron, Firefox Cycles, and Gold’s Gym support the race
