What’s so great about this event?
We usually go for our bike trips with as less as two or as much as 50 or more riders. However, in a rally, the present record for a total number of bikes of a common brand taking part is 915. On the other hand, the record for multiple brand bikes in a rally is about 20,000. This event will attempt to break both of these existing records and place a new record. So think fast, you could be one of the bikers contributing towards a new World Record.
Where will the rally take place?
All riders will ride from a stadium within the city limits of Hyderabad. Yes you guessed it right! Each team will be assigned one stadium to start from that makes it 6 stadiums within city limits. All riders from the 6 stadiums will eventually have to ride to GMR ARENA, SHAMSHABAD AIRPORT in Hyderabad.
