Mountain biking is a popular sport in Manali. The destination serves as an ideal mountain biking base for the areas of Lahaul and Spiti, Rohtang Pass and Ladakh. The period between June and September is considered perfect for mountain biking as the roads are clear of snow.
Interested travellers can hire bikes from local shops at the rate of INR 100 per hour or INR 500 per day. Local operators, like the Himalayan Extreme Centre, organise tours according to the needs of travellers. Bikers are recommended to carry first aid boxes, extra air pumps and tubes for their personal use.
