Free Rider Offer for Groups on Indian Motorbike Expeditions

Save Almost $4000 

Motorcycle expedition company, Extreme Bike Tours, is offering Australian business and leisure groups the chance for one rider to travel free when 10 thrillseekers book one of their adrenalin rides along the world’s highest roads in the Himalayas in 2013.

Under the special offer, one person in each 10-strong group will ride for free – saving up to $3930 – on Extreme Bike Tours’ Mighty Himalayan and Rajasthan trips this year.

Up to 80 per cent of riders who hit the road with India-based Extreme Bike Tours are Australian and almost two thirds of riders return for another trip with the company, owned by Englishman, Zander Combe. “Our tours are a great way for groups to bond as they cope with the extreme altitude and environment in which we operate,” Mr Combe said.

Featured recently on the ‘Top Gear’ TV show, Extreme Bike Tours will offer a range of guided tours in 2013, including a 16-day, 1300km ‘Mighty Himalaya’ tour opening the throttle on July 11 and 30 from US$3848, and an 18-day ride through palace-rich Rajasthan on October 25, 2013, from US$3930.

The tours will take licensed motorcyclists as well as pillion passengers along rugged and twisting roads to  remote, high altitude destinations and over some of the world’s highest mountain passes including the highest motorable pass on the planet – the 5600m-high Khardungn La in India. Riders visit nomadic tribes, gushing waterfalls and ancient monasteries and camp in lunar-like, high altitude deserts surrounded by soaring, snow-capped peaks.

Riders explore the mountains on renowned Royal Enfield 500cc Bullet motorbikes, which were once manufactured in the UK but are now made in India and tailored to handle the rough and winding roads of the Himalayas.  Each tour includes all meals and sees riders stay at a range of hotels, guesthouses and campsites along the way.

Tours and fares are subject to availability and conditions apply.
