The WTH MTB Adventures have not only made MTB cycling popular in the Himalayan destinations but have also helped lots of riders achieve their dream of making a career in cycling. The organization has also sponsored a number of cyclists during their journey of 9 years and has helped cyclists achieve their dreams.


Lately, WTH MTB Adventures has organized an expedition where they plan to undertake a cycling round trip from Manali to Ladakh. Nagaland’s Kevilebo Zhotso, along with two other riders – Rakesh and Anisha, hailing from India and Nepal, will be riding on the highest plateau of India, Ladakh.


“The idea behind doing this expedition was to promote cycling tours across the Himalayan Region so that cyclists can also have a career out of their passion. As an organization, we are closely looking at promoting Cycling Tours in Northeast India, specifically Nagaland, Arunachal Pradesh, and Meghalaya,” the WTH MTB Adventures said in an update received here.


According to them, these states have immense potential, and hence, they want to showcase these locations to cyclists not only from India but also outside India. “We are working with Kevilebo on this plan, and we shall announce our Cycling Tours in these areas very soon,” they added.


It may be noted that the organization has been organizing MTB races in Uttarakhand, with their pioneer race being “MTB Nainital,” which has attracted the top cyclists from India, Nepal, Army, and Navy to come and participate in the race.


“We have also conducted cycling tours across India (Ladakh, Himachal, Uttarakhand, Rajasthan), Nepal, and Bhutan and have also been helping cyclists to get employed for such tours so that they can also be financially independent. We had also organized MTB Meghalaya in the year 2017, which was a competitive race,” WTH MTB Adventures added.


The group now has Rakesh Rana hailing from Uttarakhand since 2013, and he has been one of the best riders in India. Nagaland’s Kevi Lebo has been with them since 2017. Ahondo Menjo and Rubi Lombo from Arunachal Pradesh had been there with them for a period of 2 years and have supported many riders.


“Since inception, we have been helping cyclists achieve their dreams,” ‘WTH MTB Adventures’ stated.
