FUNDRAISING: This charity challenge will be announced shortly.

Together, our goal is to raise USD 20,000. To ensure we achieve our targets, we request each individual to fundraise USD 2,000 so that together, we can succeed.

FITNESS LEVEL: This is a demanding test of fitness and determination and requires experience riding a bike off-road in varying terrain for up to 5-7 hours per day. It is achievable by anyone in good health. Walking your bike is allowed! Support vehicles with us along the route at all times.
