BCMTouring Group Ride to Ladakh

In September 2007, BCMTouring conducted its first official group ride to Ladakh, comprising of 12 BCMTians from across India. This 16 day group ride to Ladakh covered Manali – Leh Highway, Srinagar – Leh Highway, Khardung La, Nubra Valley and Pangong Tso, and gave a chance to members to ride along with fellow BCMTians, who had similar interest and passion for travel and photography.

BCMTouring’s Group Ride to Ladakh was also featured on the front page of leading Hindi daily in India, Nav Bharat Times.
