Event Description

On May 31, 1868, the world's first organised bicycle race was held at Arc de Saint-Cloud, Paris. Expatriate Englishman, James Moore won it on a wooden bicycle with iron tyres! Bicycling and cycle racing have certainly come a long way since. Famous international racing events like Tour de France, Giro d'Italia and Vuelta a Espana have made the sport hugely popular around the globe. As cycling slowly catches up in India, both as a fitness sport and a preferred travel medium, stage racing events are still few and far between. With the Manali-Leh Open Cycling Championship, we not only aim to popularise cycling culture but also create a racing event that will put India firmly on the world circuit. The route has been chosen for its unparalleled beauty, high adventure quotient and popularity with travellers across the world. Yes! You will finally ride the World's Highest Highway!
