About Chakra Fest
Chakra Fest is where cycling meets entertainment, in short. With Chakra Fest we want to celebrate cycling. So we thought, why not combine cycling with some fun and hence we teamed up with The Gig Night to offer you a first of its kind cyclation – a short cycle vacation.
Who We Are
We are ‘Delhi By Cycle’, India’s first City cycle Tour Company established in 2009. We organize and operate city cycle tours as well as long distance cycling tours. Since we are celebrating our 10 year anniversary this year, we are organizing an array of cycling events.
After the successful completion of our first event ‘24 Spokes‘ which had participants from all over the world cycling for a cause on World Bicycle day, we are looking forward to making Chakra Fest yet another hugely successful event.
Chakra Fest is a designed with the elements of long-distance cycling, bonfire bonding, night camping and many other cool activities. So you are sure to have a lot of fun, some cycling and a good deal of partying, if you decide to join us.
We start cycling from Delhi at 10 am. If you do not have your own cycle, we will provide you with a good quality cycle at an extra cost. Depending on your pick-up point, you will join the Chakra Fest convoy.
On the way, we will stop for a brief period of time for a tea break. After that we will get back on our cycles and continue the ride until we get to our lunch point. These breaks are strategically designed to make this ride more enjoyable to riders of any experience level.
After having a delicious lunch and getting to know the participants, we will hit the road again towards our beautiful camping site. The total distance we ride on the first day is about 50kms.
Once you reach the camp, the second stage of fun begins. The campsite we have chosen for you has a lot of fun activities lined up for you. Live music, BBQ, movie screening to name a few.
At the campsite, we will be welcomed by the friendly host as soon as we arrive. Then its time for you to explore the camp area. After the introduction sessions and relaxation, there will be a screening of an interesting movie. It is also time for some snacks and light eats.
By then it will be time for the main event you all have waited for, Live Music by an uber cool artist! You can step forward, sing along, dance along and chill. The fun continues till its time for dinner. After a delicious dinner, the fun continues as the post dinner jam session takes place. Then its up to you to call it as a day whenever you feel like. Our only friendly advice – while you are having the time of your life – is that please don’t forget that we have a riding day ahead in the morning.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the accommodation facilities available?
The idea of Chakra Fest is Cycling and night camping with some music and fun. So the night accommodations are arranged in Swiss tents. If you aren’t familiar, run a google search on Swiss tents. You will see that they are quite spacious, unlike the usual dome tents. They even have an attached toilet inside. Also it can actually fit at least 6 people easily. But we are limiting the number to 3.
So your accommodation will be in Swiss tents on a Triple sharing basis.
What is the total cycling distance?
From Delhi to our night camping spot, it is approximately 40 to 50kms. Depending on from which point in Delhi you are starting, you will have to ride close to 45km on an average, but mostly not more than 50km.
Next day we ride back similar distance. If you are taking part in any of our special cycling activities you can add another 10-20km. So in total about 120kms in 2 days. But it won’t be in one stretch. So even if you are starting out to cycle, you can join this ride.
