The Royal Riders was started by 3 eclectic guys, 2 French and 1 Spanish. Between us we have 4 languages, 3 passionate bikers, one geek, 2 tourism professionals, 3 experienced entrepeneurs and 3 explorers who love India above all else. We all live in here in Pondicherry in the south India. We have all travelled around the world, we all ride Royal Enfields and we are all mad about riding and discovering the roads less travelled.
But there is a big gap between having a blast on solo travels and sharing these adventures with other road trip lovers. Many have tried to bridge the gap but until now, no one has succeeded.
We don’t follow the tourist trail, we follow our favorite routes discovered by us throughout our years of riding adventures. Our goal is to let you experience first hand the craziness of India as seen from the bike and to offer you the opportunity to discover the beautiful culture and diversity of landscape that is Southern India.
All our trips are taken in this spirit, you will pass through crazy busy towns, villages that time forgot, coast, mountain, beaches, highways and bypaths, you will experience markets, temples, history, modernity and many unexpected but wonderful things that India has to offer.
The Royal Riders make this exciting and unexplored India safe and accessible to any one who knows how to drive a bike.
We hope to meet and share our experiences and beautiful India with you very soon.
