The seventh edition of the biggest cycling event in Nepal, the Kathmandu Kora Cycling Challenge was organized on 15th July 2017, Saturday. About 2500 riders registered to cycle the 50km, 75km and 100km routes around Kathmandu for charity.


Since 2011, this event has fundraised over Rs. 4.5 million for investment in health and education in Rukum, Baitadi, Dolakha and Kathmandu.

This year, the event was organized for two objectives. First, to bring cycling tourism into Bungamati and Khokana by supporting the Bungamati Trails Initiative, a local youth led initiative. This initiative aims to maintain trails and bring in cycling tourism to rebuild with pride. And second, to bring more cyclists into the Nepal Cycling Association as members, with an aim to expand cycling community and drive more services into the cycling industry.
