Come December 2017 and a lucky bunch of cyclists will usher in a decade of cycling for Tour of Nilgiris (TfN) by pedaling around 1000+ kms across the Nilgiris Biosphere Reserve in the Western Ghats
The 10th edition of the annual flagship event of RideACycle Foundation (RAC-F) is scheduled between December 10 and 17, 2017, wherein the selected riders will pedal 1000+ kms across Karnataka, Kerala and Tamilnadu. Starting from Bangalore, cyclists will pedal through Mysuru, Madikeri, Sultan Bathery, Udhagamandalam (Ooty) and finish the tour by riding back to Mysore. Cyclists pedaling TfN 2017 will get to ride through amazing terrains including plains, mountains, coffee & tea plantations and three wild life sanctuaries.
Registrations are open and RAC-F will shortlist riders based on their cycling profile and fitness to ensure the chosen cyclists endure 1,000 kms+ of pedaling across some of the most difficult terrains in the Western Ghats.
From a humble beginning TfN has come a long way and has emerged as the largest and most loved bike tours in India that has put India on the global cycling map
