Just back yestaerday from this trip. Take lots of warm clothing with you, its unseasonably cold and very very foggy. I wore 8 layers on 2 of the days. Take the biggest padded gel seat you can find as the roads are not good and the rides are long on some days and make sure you take something to cover your faces. We all suffered with a chest virus made really bad by the pollution which can be bad even in the backroads.Other than that its brilliant. You will have one of the best guides ever called Sanjay who has a great sense of humour.Just ask him each morning how much "uppy uppy uppy there is". Its all go with usually 45 mins to get ready for dinner as you arrive at every stop. Take plenty of anti-bac hand gel which seemed to work for us as only one of us got the dreaded belly upset. Also take plenty of tissues and wet wipes and a torch. The food is great throughout and the Chai stops addictive. Enjoy it all
Its a brillaint trip but we all suffered chest/cold infections which was not helped by the pollution. Most of us wore the multi way scarf that can be used to keep your head and ears warm as well as protecting the mouth and nose. Heavens knows what we would have been like without them. Also if your doctor will let you have any i was helped by taking antibiotics with me. The bizzare things is on the odd afternoons the temp must have hit 25-26c and that was after a freezing morning and the sun not making an apperance until 1130ish. The temp starts to drop in the evnings about 4pm and you can sometimes be cycling till 6pm but there is plenty of opportunity to stip down or add layers at each stop as the coach is always behind the slowest rider and there is no pressure on anyone to be ultra fast apart from the afternoon ride after the Jain Temple as you need to get to the end before dusk as it would be quite dangerous. Thats lots of uppy uppy uppy and downy downy downy :-)
You will love it i am sure, i did.
