“What can I say. A team of 29 people on a cycling adventure on push bikes around the streets and countryside of India.

An amazing combination of sight-seeing and cycling, seeing the best of everything on 2 weeks.

I admire and truly respect the patience, calm and challenge heading the Teens Unite Team around some truly challenging reads, sand and rocky terrain.

The visit to schools planting trees and seeing the true environment was an eye opening and truly wonderful experience.

Puran is one of the most accommodating tour leaders with JoJo being one of the motivating and good souls who wanted to do all he could to give everyone their best life!

I would certainly recommend it to anyone thinking of doing the trip.

Thanks Puran!”

“Expedition leaders have organised an unbelievable trip exploring the golden triangle in India. We have cycled through some amazing villages, learning the culture and supporting the local people whilst raising money for Teens Unite.

There hasn’t been a bad day and the accommodation has been great.

It really has been an eye opening experience and now I will never travel to a poor country again without visiting and supporting people less fortunate than myself.

Thank you so much for such an amazing trip. You should be very proud of the trip and the organisation that you made for this trip.”

"Dear Puran,

Thank you! You have made this experience a joy. Your knowledge + “stones” has been a bonus.

I love India, the people, the food (curry) and the positivism - I especially loved the driving!

Until we meet again,
