Eventbrite - #kora17 | Kathmandu Kora Cycling Challenge 2017

kora17 | the cause

This year, KORA will be looking at using the funds that the cyclists will raise to kickstart a wonderful project that will finance cycling trails in the Bungamati Area of Kathmandu valley, making the area perfect for families, amateur riders, and even professional riders wishing to improve their biking skills.

The collective benefits of this fund raising will benefit cyclists themselves, and each contributor can be glad that their contributions have helped Nepal have its first Cycle Friendly Zone – with trails for each type of rider.

At Bungamati, the Bungamati Trails Initiative is led by a group of youth representing different local clubs, working together in this initiative that will lead to more people visiting the place, and create employment opportunities for the locals as cycling guides, repair centres, coffee shops, handicraft centres and also eventually overnight stays. All this will contribute to the reconstruction efforts of this area.

Each contributors contribution will be.recorded as part of this initiative, and each funder can be happy that their contributions has kickstarted something innovative in Nepal.

A Synopsis of the Cause

The Kathmandu Kora Cycling Challenge 2016 aims to raise funds for the following causes:
1) ‘Medicare on Wheels’ An ambulance for the village of Gatlang,Rasuwa
2) ‘Help a Child get education’ A school at Sikherbesi, Nuwakot
Karma Foundation the philanthropy wing of Socialtours along with Cycle City Network Nepal will be co-organising the Kathmandu Kora Cycling Challenge 2016.

The project ‘Medicare on Wheels’ will be carried out in close coordination with our Kora partners Cycle City Network Nepal. This project is expected to provide direct health access to about 1900 people of Gatlang and to approximately 400 other people from the neighboring villages of Chilime and Syabrubesi.

The school at Shikherbesi, Nuwakot will benefit children from roughly 600 families. Working with Nepal Cycle Ride to Rescue, The Karma Foundation hopes to raise enough funds to complete the school this calendar year. NCRR is building schools in Nuwakot under the slogan ‘7 schools in 7 weeks’. So far 5 of these schools have been completed and handed over to the concerned authorities. The building of the 6th school will be undertaken from the funds raised by Kora 16.

Over 2500 cyclists have registered for the event and will aim to complete the 50Km, 75Km and 100Km Kora challenge. The event encourages all to be a part of the challenge to raise funds to help people out in far flung villages, have access to healthcare and education.

The day of the challenge itself: Kathmandu, July 16, 2016:
The event got underway on the 16th of July, 2016 with over 2000 riders gathering at Patan Durbar square from as early as 6.30 AM. The area bore a festive look with a mosaic of colors and riders from varied backgrounds assembled and eager to take on the challenge head on.

Raj Gyawali from socialtours one of the co-organizers flagged off the 100KM riders at 8 AM, followed by 75KM and then 50 KM. By 8:30 AM all the riders had left and the place bore a deserted look. The riders followed their respective trails with the help of international standard trail markers on the route or on an application specially earmarked for the event on Android. Both of these were a first in the history of cycling in Nepal.

Amongst the riders were also certified first aiders, mechanics and medics to make the riding experience safe. Water points along the route made sure the riders were hydrated all the time thus preventing fatigue and dehydration related cramps.

Riders began pouring into Samata School from 1200 hrs onwards, where a special Kora food court was organized to refuel the riders. Food ranging from hot dogs to meat wraps was available to suit every palate.
Around 2 pm the first riders began to trickle into Patan Durbar Square once again transforming the place into a festive ground. The riders were presented with a gold medal each to commemorate their success thus proving ‘Everyone is a winner’.

The event was a great success and the organizers would like to take this opportunity to thank the riding community for their participation and enthusiasm. Adieu!!! Till Kathmandu Kora cycling challenge July 15, 2017.
