Pedal To Jungle –Reliving the Legacy of Maharana Pratap

One of the bravest kings of Mewar and a greatest source of motivation, Maharana Pratap is revered as one of the strongest warriors India has ever seen. His determination, fearlessness and a strong love for independence continues to inspire the ages till now.

Remembering the extraordinary personality of Maharana Pratap with respect and adoration, we present our 3rd edition of Pedal To Jungle. The journey that celebrates the fortitude, valor and irrepressible courage and confidence of all across the nation in the same way as the legacy of Maharana Pratap has evoked admiration on all hands.

The total trip will be a cycling of around 150 km spread through 3 days starting from Fatehsagar to Gogunda (a town where Maharana Pratap’s coronation was performed) via Badi Lake and Ubeshwarji.

With the evening filled with enjoying the culturally rich food and programs, the next day we ride to Kumbhalgarh, a Mewar fortress of historical importance. The third day we ride to Thandi Beri for the closing ceremony followed by a visit to the century old famous Ranakpur temple.
