KTM Kora Cycling Challenge will be on 16th July
Every year, on the third Saturday in July, riders from Nepal and all over the world gather in Kathmandu (last year there were close to 2,500 riders) to ride a personal challenge of 50 km, 75 km and 100 km around the Kathmandu Valley. This is now popular as the Kathmandu Kora, this year on its sixth edition.
Started in 2011, a modest 35 riders challenged themselves and got pledged of around half a million NPR (Nepalese rupees) for a school and an orphanage in Kathmandu. In its second edition, almost 300 riders turned up and raised close to a million for upgrading birthing facilities in Rukum.
