The race will take place on a circuit within Nakhipot’s premises. The 4.35km trail starts from Nakhipot’s basketball court and follows various sections like tight turns, speed bumps where you could jump, singletracks by paddy fields, footpaths, alleyways, small temples, lawns and school building. The trail heads downhill towards Kantipur Colony and then takes the longest steep climb up on paved roads, from where we take narrow trails to then make a power pedal to the finish line.

Cyclists of all experience and backgrounds are encouraged to participate. There are several categories to choose from, including Kids category (i.e., children below the age of 10).

We’re introducing a Kids’ category in the race. Families that come to the event are invited to have their kids (below the age of 12) to participate in a short yet really enjoyable course. Besides being an entertaining addition to the race, the category serves to assimilate a culture of outdoors and sports in kids from an early age.
