Here’s a list of the best bicycle races in Gujarat, where you can work on your skills and competitive spirit. The list comprises both road and mountain bike races.
Amateur races are arguably the purest form of racing. You spend money, time, energy and for what. Just for pride. To beat your competition. And feel that adrenalin rush.
You don’t win big prize money, no photographs in the newspaper, no adulating fans.
There is only one reason why you go racing at these amateur races. For the love of the sport. Because from the racers to the organisers to the volunteer marshals, every single person is there because they are brimming with passion for the sport.
These amateur races are also an excellent testing ground for the competitive folk to sharpen their skills. It lets you push yourself to the limits, with nothing at stake, but pride.
There is no quicker way to get fitter on a bike than racing. Having your ass whooped by your riding buddy, will make you pull out all stops to extract sweet revenge in the next race. In the process you and your buddy, will get faster…
The race organisers’ list below is not exhaustive. If you feel we have missed out on any bicycle races, let us know in the comments below!
