6 women among 61 motorcyclists set to cover  Himalayan Odyssey

New Delhi, Jul 8 (UNI) The 14th edition of Royal Enfield’s 'Himalayan Odyssey' was flagged off here today from India Gate, with 61 motorcyclists, including six women riders, embarking on a journey where they will be traversing some of the roughest terrains and highest mountain passes in the world. The contingent which was flagged off by Rudratej Singh, President, Royal Enfield said in a statement, "Considering the holy grail of motorcycling, the riders will cover a distance of over 2400 kms in 18 days on their Royal Enfield motorcycles." As a long standing tradition, the Lamas chanted prayers and blessed the riders at the flag-off ceremony at India Gate. “The Himalayan Odyssey is more to us than a marquee ride event. It represents a clarion call to get on a Royal Enfield and kick-start a lifelong journey towards self discovery. If the Himalayas are our spiritual home, then the Himalayan Odyssey is a pilgrimage to our purpose of kick-starting explorations through pure motorcycling. Each year, we have a growing number of riders that traverse the Himalayas," Mr Singh said. He said the riders were their true brand custodians, who nudge others to ride along with them while charting new courses. The participants for the 'Himalayan Odyssey' have gathered from across India, including cities like Ernakulam, Dindigul, Calicut, Vidisha and Vellore to be a part of the expedition. The riders will reach Leh on July 12 and will proceed to Khardung-La on July 14. They will be going through Keylong and Kaza, reaching Narkanda on July 22 before finally culminating the ride in Chandigarh on July 23. From the mighty peaks, down to teasing mountain curves, the riders will face the most challenging riding terrains in the world. During the ride, the weather is likely to shift remarkably from scorching hot to icy cold. UNI PY RSA SB 1333
