New Delhi, April 7, 2016: Candida Louis, supported by CEAT, who embarked on an intriguing road trip to promote road safety awareness, reached the Delhi pit stop today. The thrilling solo ride that commenced on 5th April 2016 from Chandigarh will cover 13 cities across 8 states to end in Siliguri.

Taking this message, Candida will cover over 4000 KMs of challenging terrains in different places across Punjab, Rajasthan, Gujarat, Rajasthan, Delhi, Uttar Pradesh, West Bengal and Assam. During her journey she will engage with the local biking communities to educate them on the nuances of safe driving as well.
