Cycle for Safe Water
3-12th November 2022 – sold out!
This unique cycle challenge follows a new, spectacular route through India’s Madhya Pradesh. The nine day trip is delivered together with our friends at Holidays in Rural India and starts and ends at the lovely Shergarh Tented Camp.
Sorry! This challenge is full. But there’s still time to register for Cycle for Safe Water #2 which will take place from 17-26th November 2022.
This trip is about seeing landscape and wildlife and meeting local people without the barrier of a jeep or car. The cycling will be mainly on flat or rolling countryside. It is not an extreme sporting event, and support will be available throughout. The group trip will cover approximately 350km over different terrain – from smooth tar to bumpy forest tracks. Whilst the distances aren’t overly strenuous, there is much to stop and see along the way, including villages where you’ll meet people whose lives have been transformed with safe, clean drinking water and sanitation. We want this to be a time to get to know rural India, and Frank Water’s work, not simply pound through it.
Accommodation will include very simple guest houses, a camp out on a friend’s beautiful veranda, the luxury of Shergarh, and one other very special lodge.
With an optional night or two in Mumbai at each end of your trip and the option of a first-class overnight train ride in both directions this makes for a truly immersive fortnight long Indian adventure.
Our short film was shot on our 2018 cycle challenge in India’s Andhra Pradesh. Whilst this year’s route is different, we hope it gives you an idea of what to expect.
