During the flag opening ceremony, the horse-riding team was blessed by Ladakh-style Buddhist lamas. The riders are made up of people from all over the world, including the Netherlands, Singapore and the Indian cities of Madurai, Kasargod and Sriviliptur, among others. Cyclists will travel along the Jammu-Srinagar route and stop at the Dera Kargil War Memorial to pay their respects to the martyrs.

From there, the team will travel to Leh before cycling to Umm Rinla. After crossing the highest maneuverable mountain pass, the team will proceed to Manali before finishing the journey in Chandigarh. The group of riders will run an awareness campaign for responsible travel.
