There is something magical about riding in the Night time. Kathmandu by day is a busy, crowded city full of visual stimulation. Sometimes its nice to switch off from the Hulla Bulla (Noise and distractions) and ride off into the sunset … so to speak.
At night time on the fringes of the Jungle along the Kathmandu Valley Rim, we ride a network of single tracks and walking paths. Surprised locals come out of their houses, unaccustomed to seeing cyclist at night. Dogs bark, they are duty to look at for leopards, but when they know we are cyclist, tails wag with happiness. The Jungle sounds cut through the silence of the Night. An ocean of lights below us forming a tranquil halo above the Chaotic city. It gives us a chance to fill our lungs with fresh air and watch the moon playing hid and seek with the rain clouds.
Riding seems easier at night, the air chilled and fresh. The climbs seem less steep and long. Our focus is only on the funnel of light in front of our bikes. There are no distractions, we just ride.
Himalayan Single Track operates night rides every-week. So if you have a spare evening and want to experience a different vibe in Kathmandu Valley then join us for a 2 – 3 hours night ride followed by the local delicious Momo’s.
Night rides can be custom made to suit groups and skill levels.
