The bike ride commenced on December 1 and will cover a total of 4,000 kilometres in 18 days. During their journey, they will pass through 6 States, 13 cities and 11 Rotary districts and will visit more than 100 clubs and collect funds from there.

20 bikes and 1 car will be undergoing the journey, accompanied by 4 physicians.

The bike riders from 12 Rotary clubs from the State will travel through Bengaluru, Nellore, Vijayawada, Hyderabad, Solapur, Shirdi, Mumbai, Pune, Ratnagiri, Goa, Udupi, Kozhikode and Mysuru. They will reach Bengaluru on December 18.
