Salt Ride - Iconic Bike Ride in Gujarat, India
Thirty-five years before Dr. Martin Luther King marched from Selma to Montgomery, a 60-year-old Mohandas Karamchand
Gandhi led dozens of his followers on a journey from Sabarmati Ashram to Dandi, in a peaceful protest against an archaic British ‘Salt Tax’ law. Gandhi hoped to bring worldwide attention to the growing Indian independence movement by highlighting the injustice
of Britain’s colonial salt laws, which forbade Indians from producing or selling their own salt. The Salt March, also known as the Dandi March began on March 12, 1930, near Gandhi’s religious retreat in Sabarmati Ashram, and proceeded some 384 KM southward over 24 days toward the coastal village of Dandi. Along the final stretch crowds of thousands gathered to watch Gandhi and his followers deliberately break the law by evaporating seawater to make their own salt.
The Salt Ride provides you with an opportunity to experience & enjoy this rural India and its spirituality firsthand: its rural
culture, folk-life and traditional meals. Join us on this all-immersive 8-day cycling experience, where we will ride
approximately 384 KM, following the route of Mahatma Gandhi’s famous salt march raising awareness and vital funds
