The State Tourism Department of Uttarakhand has commissioned a team of 10 professional bikers to travel to Kumaon to identify biking routes. Tourism officials said that the idea was to promote Uttarakhand as a popular biking destination just like Himachal Pradesh and Leh. The state tourism secretary said, “We want to build on the potential of Uttarakhand for biking tourism.”
The bikers have started their journey from Dehradun and are headed to Pithoragarh, Nainital, Munsiyari, Jageshwar, Ranikhet and Almora before ending their journey in Rishikesh.
