13 Year Anniversary Challenge

Every year in August, we take a short pause as we fondly look back to the day in 2009 when The Bike Affair was born, then based out of a 2 bedroom apartment at Whitefield, Kondapur (In Hyderabad, India). Since then, it has been an exciting journey, and all of you have been an integral part of this journey.

Last year we decided to do a bit more than just looking back - we celebrated our 12th anniversary with a distance challenge . We are extending it this year with another distance challenge, but this time we have a twist.  And we want to invite all of you to be part of this.

Lets do it together!

The Challenge

1. Complete 1000km total ride distance with total elevation gain >= 7000m between 01 Aug and 31st Aug to finish the challenge
