The Tour of Nilgiris is back


One of the most scenic cycling tours in this part of the world, the Tour of Nilgiris covers more than 800 km across South India.

The eighth edition to be organised from Dec 16-23, 2015 covering the states of Karnataka, Kerala and Tamil Nadu will see the riders pass through wildlife sanctuaries of Bandipur, Wayanad and Mudumalai, reports Express Travelworld.

“Tour of Nilgiris has eight continuous days of amazing scenes, routes, etc. The beauty of the tour is that it takes you closer to the wilderness. We are now coming up with a shorter three day tour format covering some of the amazing and exotic locations of India including tea / coffee plantations. Five destinations have already been finalised for 12 shorter routes that will be launched next year,” said Sridhar Pabbisetty, co founder of Tour of Nilgiris and Breakaway Sports which organises these cycling tours.

Five destinations have been finalised and two trails identified. “We are building infrastructure around the trails. It takes us about half a year to set that up,” he added. The new tours will also include some extreme category events that will test the riders’ mountain biking skills.
