the great american bicycle ride

800 kms of pure wheel power

just you, your cycle across New York State

Imagine the roar of the Niagara Falls fading away, the skyline of New York City looming ahead and a crisp spring air on your back. A thrilling adventure of discovery and endurance, and an opportunity to really stretch your boundaries and see what you are made of.

Cycle from Buffalo to New York City along the Empire State Trail in USA. Camp in state parks, cruise past tranquil lakes, stroll the historic canals, and witness the most amazing views ever.


lead and take ownership

Over the 15 days, ride for more than 800 kms across New York state. Carry your belongings and equipment in panniers as you ride along the coastline, set-up camp at state parks, and cook your food. Roles and responsibilities like cooking, cleaning, packing are shared and rotated over the days. As the days progress, the instructors take a step back to let the group lead the program. They brave diverse weather conditions together and also discover different facets of each other's personalities along the way.

"The high point of our journey with Inme was last year when Arjun did GABR. Being the youngest in the group, we were little anxious about him completing the ride. Sarabjit and his team were a great driving force. They kept him motivated till the end and he came back a refined teenager."

fitness requirements

The Great American Bicycle Ride is gruelling journey that will take some real physical and mental preparation. We strongly recommend you follow Inme's eight week fitness plan and prepare for the program. Other than a reasonable level of fitness, cycling is the best way to prepare. If you have access to a bicycle—ride it daily. If not, substitute it with another form of cardiovascular exercises such as running, football or swimming.
