Kathmandu Kora Cycling Challenge 2013

Every year, on the third Saturday in July, riders from Nepal and all over the world (ok, that sounds glamorous, but riders from different nationalities do participate) gather in Kathmandu (last year we were close to 300 riders) to ride a personal challenge rider of 50 kilometers around Kathmandu Valley. This is now popular as the KATHMANDU KORA, this year on its third edition.

Started in 2011, a modest 35 riders challenged themselves and got pledged of around half a million Nepali Rupees for a school and an orphanage in Kathmandu. In its second edition, almost 300 riders turned up and raised close to a million Rs. for upgrading birthing facilities in RUKUM.

THIS YEAR, its going to be BIG. As part of the EVERYONE CAMPAIGN, we plan to build a birthing facility in Sharmali VDC, Baitadi. This will be a Eco-Designed building, providing the best facilities to the women and children in this remote VDC. The principle is simple - no more minimum standards for our women and children. They deserve the best standards. They deserve a birthing facility that is beautiful, secure, earthquake proof, welcoming, warm and everything that we expect facilities to be like in the city. And this is what we aim to do.


How do we achieve this?
Easy. We register. We share. We talk to people about what we are doing, and get pledges from them for each kilometer we are riding.

The registration form for the Kathmandu Kora Cycling Challenge 2013 is here. Please fill in all fields and read the small print before you press submit. We shall contact you via email (so please make sure that the email is accurate) to confirm your registration.


You just need to register thats it! IDEALLY, we will ask you to please raise Rs. 100 for each km you ride by asking friends, family, companies to pledge the amount for the BIRTHING FACILITIES we are raising this money for. This is voluntary, and you are not bound to raise this money.
