Welcome to the MTBX off roading cycling trip series around the outskirts of Tiruporur this weekend. We will be riding through some of the village roads near Thirukazhikundram, ride over the off-roading trails near the lakes, enjoying the wonderful scenery.
Plan is to start early morning from Thiruvanmiyur, reach Tiruporur by sunrise, take breakfast and jump into the off road trails, come back to Chennai by evening. Road coverage will come around 70KM and off-roading 30KM.
This ride is open to all those have basic fitness level. MTBs are preferred as most of the trails will be on off-roads, Hybrids will find it a bit hard. We will be moving at a slow pace in off-roads.
Make sure that the cycle is in good condition as mechanical problems can make delay.
Cost 200rs (food- breakfast ,lunch and snacks). We will take food from small hotels on the way. Carry some extra cash in case of emergency transport required for you along with your bicycle. Puncture kits, hand pumps and essential tool kits will be taken care by organizers.
