Have an incredible Indian adventure and raise vital funds for Acorns on the 2013 Acorns India Cycle Challenge. Exclusively for Acorns supporters, participants on this 400km cycle challenge will see a different side to Rajasthan, the ‘land of the kings’ as they weave through the back streets, small villages and desert landscapes. Days in the saddle will be long and hot but one of the Seven Wonders of the World, the Taj Mahal, will be your target, pulling you onwards towards the finish line.
For those wanting to give something back there is also the opportunity of extending your stay to include a community project working towards improving the lives of local children, further information available soon.
