The third edition of the Kathmandu Kora Cycling Challenge will take place on Saturday. More than 700 cyclists have registered to take part in the challenge that aims to raise 1 million rupees to build a model eco- friendly birthing centre in Baitadi.

The Kora is a circuit route of the Kathmandu valley’s lower hills, sub urban areas and sights. Participants can choose to take on the 50 km challenge or the more demanding 75 km. For each kilometer covered, the Kathmandu Kora requests participants to pledge Rs 100 for support.

If you are not a cyclist, you can help by choosing to sponsor a few kilometers or others cyclists taking on the challenge. Last year’s challenge saw participation of 300 riders and collectively raised over Rs 950,000 which went towards building a birthing facility at Samritu in Rukum.
