adventure on wheels
A mountain biking expedition that spans 80kms through the challenging trails of the Kumaon Himalayan range. Set up camp and live at different locations everyday. Experience multi-terrains as you cycle through the rolling hills—on roads, off-road tracks and dense forest trails. Slush, rocks, mud and dirt.
Learn the technicalities of riding in the wild—how to regulate speed over turns and balance your weight going up and down hills. Get real familiar with your bike…dismantle it, maintain it and even learn how to fix punctures! An intensive session to plan out everything—from menus, ration and utensils to contingency food plans—before we pack and load the jeeps. Learn to share the responsibilities of cooking, cleaning, firewood collection and resource management along the way.
This is the best summer camp that I have ever gone for. It’s so good I’ve been to their camps for 6 straight years and no matter how many times I went, there was always something new to find out, experience and learn. INME has not just given me wild and fun experiences and lessons but also a few best friends who I would have never met if I hadn’t gone to camp. So grateful that I was given the opportunity to go for INME, life wouldn’t be the same without them.
