We are happy to announce CyclingMonks’ association with AdvenThrill for their ‘Foothills MTB Challenge’ in April.
This is a hill climb mountain bike race which starts in Dehradun.
The race is conducted by AdvenThrill, a Dehradun based adventure organiser. They specialise in treks and bicycle tours. They also organise bicycle races and have been doing so for the last couple of years.
The Foothills MTB Challenge will be held on the 14th of April 2021 in memory of Tanishk Chaudhary. Tanishk was a young dynamic talent from the city who tragically lost his life in a road collision.
The best way to remember a racer is to race in their name and this is what the cycling community of Dehradun hopes to do on the 14th.
This hill climb race is open only for MTBs and sees you climb around 600 metres in 21 km on broken gravel roads.
The route passes through scenic Garhwal hills, along less used roads and makes for an excellent challenge for cyclists of the city and even outside.
For outstation cyclists, Dehradun is a lovely place to pitch camp and go riding around the surrounding hills. Before and after the race.
You can Register for the race on this link: https://forms.gle/EiRGnJh4o83DYyyy5
