Event Description

LEVEL 4: If you can thread sheer vertical ascent, handle dire acute descent and manoeuvre extremely confined bends then you would’ve conquered Kalhatty.

There ain’t many who are not familiar with Ooty (Udhagamandalam), a popular hill station located in the Niligiri Hills (Blue Mountains) which is considered the Queen of Hill stations. The beauty of this place is the entire package of fresh dew drop canopies, lush wide spread tea estates, adorable Niligiri Mountain Toy Train, its ever pleasant weather which even during the peak of summer sends a few chills down your senses, the gardens, flowers & lakes, but of course not to forget the reason Ooty is famous for – the hill station that it is, with at least 24 peaks above 2000 meters (6600 ft) this provides cyclists a paradise to hustle and glide.

Brace up for some heavy duty cycling trek, Conquering Kalhatty is a level 4 cycling trail that is going to test even regular cyclists to the core. The roads are predominantly good, meandering through tranquil dense forest region leading to one of the steepest climb you can confront with numerous hairpin bends. Cycling to Ooty is an expedition that is exasperating yet worth every drop of sweat expended.

MTB’s are suited best for this terrain to tackle and grapple through the uphill and downhill deftly. (ICYCLE.in recommends Parvath for its superior grip and aerodynamics for this trek).
Event Start: The event starts with the assembly of the cyclists at Sadashivnagar Swimming Pool at 08:00 PM the previous day, from there we take off to Bandipur in our transit vehicle covering a total transit distance of approx 270 kms overnight, we reach Bandipur by mid night and stay the night at Hotel Bandipur Plaza.
