Cycling in India: A new opportunity for India Tourism gets attention


Cycle tourism, organized tours to include cycling, is gaining momentum worldwide.

India seems to have been a late starter in this adventure activity.
Now, efforts are being made to make special cycle tracks to cater to the expected rise in cycling.

A 200-km stretch is being built to connect Agra with Etawah.
Attention is also being paid to the diet needs of the cyclists, says Nitin Yadav, a photographer, who is turning attention to cycle
tours. Tourists coming from Sweden, the UK, Singapore, and Australia enjoy exploring places like Kulu, Manali, Leh and Rajasthan.

Attention is being paid by the travel and tourism industry to having experts deal with ground arrangements required by the cycle enthusiasts.
