Walk to Himalayas Biking Challenge grew out of a passion for the outdoors; mountain biking, climbing, cycling, free riding, trekking, and trail running. These are all silent sports. None requires a motor; none delivers to the cheers of a crowd. In each sport, reward comes in the form of hard-won grace and moments of connection between us and nature.
Our sheer passion and love for this sport has stimulated us to pedal and chart out many unmapped, unknown routes in Maharashtra where we currently stay and in Uttarakhand where we originally belong.
Our mission: “Is to start Kumaon’s first Mountain Biking trail”
Quite frankly, this is why WTH Biking Challenge was born! Uttarakhand, this Celestial state has always poised to become India’s year-round center for adventure. Since long, skiers, hikers, and whitewater enthusiasts have indeed made their mark—and now mountain bikers are starting to do the same.
Uttarakhand has huge potential as a world class mountain bike destination and showcasing to the world one of the best natural mountain biking trails. The Kumaon region is admist sky-beating mountains covered with glazy white snow, stretched rivers and spectacular virgin surroundings. The recent bikers’ attention that has drawn to this verdant landscape has dramatically increased interest in the sport. WTH Biking Challenge has potential to stimulate an increased participation and standard of mountain bike racing in this belt as the most recognized cycling destinations in the country over the next 5 years.
For WTH team, the love of wild and beautiful places demands participation in the fight to not only preserve them, but to develop them responsibly.
Our mission:“Is not only about living life more, but it is also about helping others who are less fortunate”
As WTH Biking Challenge pedals through the toughest terrains and explores the depths and mysteries of the majestic Himalayas, we also patronise cycling as a sport amongst the local youths of Uttarakhand.
The local youth have shown tremendous commitment and drive to progress and achieve drastically with very little means. They have done so without any of the funding or expertise that comes with a high performance programme, and without any opportunity to pursue this sport. We believe that with assistance these riders have what it takes to perform alongside the best cyclists in the country. We have been and will continue to sponsor these riders for major national level competitions. Their dedication and enthusiasm has stirred us to buy high-end bikes for these boys.
To introduce the regions youth to the skills required for trail riding and racing, we also plan to provide regular youth mountain bike clinics conducted by highly experienced and renowned bikers of the country. These sessions would encompass sessions on safety, trail awareness, the power stroke, balance, track stands, wheelies, overcoming and riding obstacles and more and then head out on the trail to put the abilities to use.
Please join us, so we may reach our goals in making Uttarakhand a land of opportunities for the local youths.
