With 5000 riders expected it will be India’s biggest corporate cycling event with a social edge.

As is the tradition for the past 3 years, the ride will happen on January 26 on the occasion of the Republic Day with distance options of 100Kms, 50Kms and 5KMs / 10Kms.

In fact, encouraged by the growing numbers, we foresee the highest participation so far of 5000 riders this time from 50+ corporate houses.

But what truly sets this event apart is that this is a socially-driven cycling event. The goal is to raise awareness and funds for the education of under-privileged students, such as -

1. Anjaiah Nagar Government Primary School

It also donated 400 bicycles to various schools in the city. It also works to promote cycling for better health and greener environment.
