Chandigarh is a city and a union territory in India that serves as the capital of the two neighbouring states of Haryana and Punjab. It was one of the early planned cities in post-independent India and is internationally known for its architecture and urban design. The master plan of the city was prepared by Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier. In 2015, a survey by LG Electronics ranked it as the happiest city in India on the happiness index.
Solan is at an average elevation of 1,600 meters (5,200 ft). It is known as the “Mushroom city of India” because of the vast mushroom farming in the area. Solan is crowned as the “City of Red Gold”, in reference to the bulk production of tomatoes in the area. The Kalka-Shimla narrow gauge heritage railway line, built by the British passes through Solan and is a recognized World Heritage site.

This is the third time I did Chandigarh – Solan – Chandigarh with Dare2Gear. Each experience was different and came with its own set of challenges but one thing has never changed…. Team Dare2Gear. Their help, support encouragement, their constant presence around the riders…this has never changed, and the standard has never dropped. I am proud and happy to be a member of this group…. A proud Merakian!.
Thank you Team D2G for making each experience memorable!
I feel totally blessed and lucky to have been able to pull this one off. What an experience!!!
I am forever grateful to dare to gear – a cycling community which helps us ride and go one step ahead of what we think we are capable of doing. Thank you is just not enough for Tarun bhaiya , without you GTO and CSC were just a dream which was next to impossible. You make difficult sounds so easy every time. Talking about ride plans to routes, from technical support to guidance, from marshals ensuring each one of us are safe and fine to our beautiful stays, from yummilicious food to our recovery on point. Not only do we ride together, but we also make friends who care just like our own family. I am truly grateful and indebted beyond words.

Chandigarh-Solan was on my bucket list since the year 2020 when D2G launched Meraki 3.1. I couldn’t do it that year but was able to do it 2 years later with one of the best lots.
Special thanks to Divya ma’am for playing a major role in convincing my mother to join this ride.
This was my second Meraki after Meraki4.2 (Bhimtal-Binsar-Bhimtal) which was in the year 2021. D2G is best in their service be it Technical support, Hydration Support, Nutrition support and Marshall support. Planning was on point with the amazing off-road ride. Technicians- Abhijeet bhaiya and Gurpreet bhaiya were taking care of my bike like their own bike. Tarun Bhaiya is always there to ensure that we are on the route and not deviate from it and keeps an eye on us like a big brother and this personal touch makes me and my parents choose D2G for all my cycling expeditions.
Eagerly waiting for another masterpiece by D2G to again add bag full of memories with friends ❤️

I have been associated with the dare2gear cycling club for the past 4 years and wished to do Meraki with my friends. Also always I had it in my mind to ride a cycle in mountains.
So this Meraki came as a blessing. With old friends and new ones we make on the ride, it was an awesome experience.
The support provided by the crew throughout the ride from start to finish was on point. The crew is so helpful and motivational that they won’t at any point discourage you from stopping the ride and hopping into their support vehicle. They always encourage and stay right behind you to complete the ride.
Kudos to the team for organising and planning the route keeping in mind new riders that also finish this ride.
Looking forward to exploring the world in cycle with team D2G

It’s my first Meraki with D2G it would be a wonderful experience I enjoyed a lot. Thanks to the D2G team, technician team and photography team. They help me during the entire journey. It’s not a ride it’s more than a joy ride…..

Such a wonderful experience, which would have never been possible without the expertise of Dare2Gear. The route was absolutely unique and breathtaking. Three cheers to Tarun (D2G) for finding this route. Chandigarh to Solan is a must-do trip for any adventure cycling enthusiast. I loved every aspect of the tour and team Dare2Gear was always available for any support that was required. This was my first Meraki, but I am sure I will do many more after having done this trip.

Meraki Dosti hai…. Really happy I signed up for the amazing trip and came back with a bag full of memories and amazing pictures 😍
Thank you so much for the excellent support team D2G.❤️

Although another Meraki is over, the fun, thrill, and everlasting memories will always remind you and set the mood for the next one!
Having said that, I must admit that Dare2Gear’s support, assistance, guidance, help and effort were exceptional. During the ride, they provided everything that one could possibly imagine, including travel, food, medical care, photography, and a lifetime friendship.
When it comes to riding, I suggest enjoying the scenery, the fauna, the gushing river, the birds chirping, and the never-ending thrill of mountain biking.
As a rider, I suggest keeping it simple and steer clear of any sort of race. Stay true to yourself, follow your body, and enjoy the ride. Remember we have to “RIDE BACK HOME” safely.

This was my third Meraki with D2G and I must say it was really awesome, unbelievable and definitely a new experience to add to our memories. Throughout the journey, I have enjoyed bits and pieces whether it’s off-roading, uphill or downhill. D2G support is just fabulous. They helped in the entire journey with technical support, nutrition and photography. Looking for a more adventurous ride and trip.
You can see it’s me 👉🙂 happy and smiling after the trip.

Chandigarh Solan… A place jiske saath 22 years ka relation hai.
I have been visiting Barog Heights since 2000…
22 years is a long long time…
Hence, this is the very first thing that makes this Meraki special.
2nd… It was also my first Meraki 2 years back when I became a part of Dare2Gear… I mean, Dare2Gear became a part of me💛
All of this can never be possible without the support of the technical team, photographers and our Lead Tail Marshalls… @Gurpreet Technician @Abhijeet Technician @Saurabh Photographer @Ritesh Harjai Photographer @Tarun🌻Pushap🌻Wadhwa
You all are the backbone of every expedition.
