Arjun Sehgal, Regional Lead - North India
+91 99105 75971
Arjun has had wings, wheels and sails on his feet for decades now! Someone who eats, sleeps and breathes travel, you will find him a knowledgeable leader and a fun co-traveller with plenty of stories from the road. Not only is Arjun excited to share his experiences from his vagabond days on the cycle in Austria, Belgium, France, Holland and Italy, he is rapidly collecting new ones from meandering through India for a while now. Always keen to explore untreaded paths, unearth new routes and feel amazed at every new experience, a journey with Arjun is sure to be an exciting one. And if you are an Arsenal fan, the high fives are sure to come your way!
Dibin Devassy, Regional Lead - South India
+91 82816 32776
After six years, Dibin was happy to leave Dubai’s clinically clean environs and come right back to exploring the wonderfully unkempt and thickly green landscape of good old Kerala on his cycle. Amongst the diverse Kerala experiences, Dibin loves the traditional cuisines and organic farming methods the most! If he’s not scouring through the Kerala trails, you will find him hooked to movies with an intellectual tug; Into the Wild is his favourite! Oh not to forget he has cycled from Bangalore to Ladakh in one month.
Ehlin Olufs, Director of Business Development
+91 89719 04351
Ever since her training wheels came off (literally and figuratively), the explorer in Ehlin found herself travelling extensively through four different countries, finally landing in India, where she is happy amidst the untidy, quirky and mind boggling environment. Nothing makes Ehlin happier than seeing a steadily growing culture of ‘burning fat not fuel’, via cycling, in cities like Bangalore. With 9 years of international work-ex and four languages (German, French, English and Frisian) to her credit, you can be sure that she will be able to explain the nuances of this complex country with ease. After all she has covered plenty of urban and nature trails in the country, and is ever eager to pedal her way through some more. It’s been a while since she left Germany and still misses some good old "Schwarzbrot" and "Bratwurst" from time to time.
Poonacha Cariapa, Tour Operations Manager
+91 81052 89167
The lush coffee scaped hills of Coorg in South India must have induced the ‘outdoors’ gene in Poonacha quite early in life! With a definite soft corner for the wilderness, Poonacha ensured that he eliminated the four walls of an office early in his life and spent most of his time working with wildlife resorts and projects related to child labour. An avid reader, you will either find him buried into a book or planning the next cycling tour for Art of Bicycle trips. Besides hitting some of the best Indian trails in India, he has cycled extensively in New Zealand.
