About: Hinterland The Recce
We’ve had two previous recce rides that were an absolute success. What do i mean by that?
Our very first recce ride back in 2014, despite being formidable, we all got through it safely. That’s the No.1 priority. Everyone that took part booked another as soon as they got home and others a bit later.
Everyone came back to ride again.
Such is the impact that this type of ride has. It is motorcycle adventure in it’s purest form and there’s nothing else quite like it.
They can, and usually are difficult, challenging, demanding and character testing. They will push you to your limits.
You will be frustrated, uncomfortable and at many times you will be way outside your comfort zone. This doesn’t appeal to everyone and if it doesn’t appeal to you then don’t book this recce ride as it’s not for you. We have easier rides to choose from.
The route and all the accommodation will be planned in advance however none of us, not even me will know what the terrain is like or what our lodgings will look like.
Our plan is to start the ride in Calcutta, West Bengal, drop down into the beautiful and relatively undiscovered state of Odisha, cross by boat into the tiger infested Indian Sundarbans and finish back in Calcutta.
We will have our usual and trusted support team travelling with us.
We will ride this as one big team, winning together and failing together. If this type of ‘balls out’ ride appeals to you then you need to book now as it’s almost full.
One final point: I get ask many times, ‘what do you need to take part on these rides’? My answer is the same every time. A sense of humour and a positive can do attitude. Simple!
For those of you that want to take part but don’t have a motorcycle licence or you want to invite someone along then you can. There will be a dedicated vehicle with driver available.
If you are in any doubt as to whether these trips are for you or how totally life changing this type of adventure can be then have a read of some of the previous riders experiences on the testimonials page.
