The Cycle!

Inspire India started conducting Race Across America (RAAM) Qualifier Races in Feb 2014, with the Deccan Cliffhanger. The Race was shifted to November and has been run annually since then. It took 3 years to develop the Ultracycling Community in India before Inspire India introduced a much longer, multi-day race to prepare racers for RAAM, The Ultra Spice Race. First conducted in Jan 2017 it is also an annual event that is timed around the Indian Republic Day weekend of 26th January.

The third race to be introduced to our Calendar was the Great Himalayan Ultra which is usually held Aug-Sept, during the short window of good weather in the high reaches of Ladakh. The fourth race to be introduced is the Dunes 6-12-24 hour Time Trial Championship Race to be conducted in Jodhpur, Rajasthan in mid September.
