Scooter-borne road trip to the Himalayas? You must be a little crazy to think of it as an adventure. Well, think again.

The Wobbly Wheels Rally is a first-of-its-kind scooter rally which will be held in September this year. Commencing from Chandigarh, the plan is to give participants the opportunity to ride across picturesque mountain roads and passes over a three-week course, to explore the Himalayan region on a scooter at their own leisure and consequently test the endurance of both the vehicle and rider. To add a competitive twist, participants will be tested on their navigational, planning, and communication skills.
