7 Reasons Every Cyclist Must Have Tour De Chhattisgarh on Their Bucket List!

We love cycling- It’s fast and fun. The amount of independence it gives is simply endless and can be enjoyed by all. Whether you’re a father, mother or a kid, cycling is liberating. There is no age to kick-start the pedalling hobby.

And if you are looking to ride across highways, forests, historical monuments and get sightseeing, a cycling tour is the right way to go!

You will get to eat the best food, explore different locations and get to meet people who share the same hobby. Don’t worry about not completing the distance or getting a flat because all this will be taken care by Cycle Safari at the Tour De Chhattisgarh.

Don’t believe us?

Here are 7 reasons why the Tour De Chhattisgarh should be on your bucket list-

Powered by the Chhattisgarh Tourism:

In an endeavour to promote and attract adventure tourism in form of ‘Bicycle Tourism,’ the Chhattisgarh Tourism Board (CTB) launched the campaign ‘Tourism on Wheels’.

Under the campaign, Tour-De-Raipur and Tour-De-Chhattisgarh play an integral role. Along with Working Elements, Tour De Chhattisgarh would be highlighting the tourist destinations of the State across the country and abroad.

Meet like-minded people:

Love being a nomad?

Come, ride with many others who share the same feeling. Here, you will only meet friends who don’t mind talking about cycling 24/7.  Trust us, unlike your non-cycling friends, they are certainly entertaining and have a lot to share about the velo.

Live in some of the finest hotels:

After a long day of cycling, all you need is a good food and a warm bed. Cut away from the city madness, the Tour De Chhattisgarh offers peace of mind that only takes you to Nirvana. Chhattisgarh TourismCAC AllRounder, Working Elements & Cycle Safari certainly know how to keep their guests happy and jolly.

Stunning weather:

Our daily jobs definitely make us ‘break a sweat’. However, at the Tour De Chhattisgarh, the story is different. As the tour starts by the end of January, you are sure to experience the cold weather at all times. Whether day, noon or late evening, there is only one weather- chill. Just ensure to carry enough warm wear. The scenic view and pleasant weather will only leave you wanting for more.

Bicycle friendly:

We never expected the people and the city to be so kind. No matter which direction we pedalled, we were always welcomed with the friendliness of the villagers. Their warm smiles and curiosity definitely make Chhattisgarh a bicycle friendly state. Besides, even the forest guards and the local police were kind enough to escort us outside the city.

Sightseeing with family:

You obviously will enjoy the view while cycling through, however, cycling with your family is a different experience.  But that’s not it. Cycle safari ensures you and your family make memories worth taking home. The 400 kms cycling tour takes you through Sirpur’s Laxman temple, Gangrel’s Dam, Kondagaon, Chitrakoot Waterfalls, Tirathgarh, Kotumsar Caves and more.

Good break from your daily hassle:

The 4- day Tour De Chhattisgarh breaks through this all.  By participating in the Tour De Chhattisgarh, you can break away from the monotony of life and spend some quality time with your family. Not to forget the endless cycling that gives you another high.
