India is a country of gigantic proportions well suited to biking holidays. With over a billion inhabitants from the Himalaya in the north down to the steamy coconut groves on the Keralan backwaters in the south, it is thriving with life and action. You can ride the back roads between Rajasthan’s remote villages, observing daily life along with the incredible Moghul architecture. Or you can ride an epic journey across the ceiling of the world in Ladakh’s mighty Himalaya. You can also take it in at an easier pace and bike the Malabar Coast and sleepy tropical backwaters of Kerala.
