The Department of Tourism, Government of Kerala under the aegis of Kerala Adventure Tourism Promotion Society (KATPS), District Tourism Promotional Council Wayanad (DTPC) and Cycling Foundation of India has jointly busted the myth that Kerala is more about leisure than adventure. MTB, a mega mountain biking event into its fifth season this year has thrown the spotlight on the wild and fun filled side of this quaint state.
International Mountain cycling event - MTB Kerala 2018 is the fifth edition of the mega sporting event that has placed Kerala on the global map of Mountain Biking.
The earlier four editions of this sporting event took the riders on a tour of exploration through Kerala. The forests of Thenmala and the beautiful beach of Kovalam held riders in awe in the first edition of MTB back in 2012. In 2014, for the second edition, in 2015 at wilderness of Wayanad, for fourth edition the dense forests of Kottur in Thiruvananthapuram and this year at tea plantations of Wayanad, riders will try their luck.
This year MTB Kerala is back with its fifth edition promising riders an experience all the more thrilling and challenging than ever before. The expansive track stretches for 5 kilometers through the Priyadarshini Tea Plantation is at an altitude of 3000 feet. The track offers an immense thrill during its diver course which encompasses terrains like dirt, rocky and water. It demands the endurance of a rider who would love to enjoy nature in its pristine form.
