Read an in-depth article in "Humaneity Magazine" that sheds light on RRI's our behind the scenes work experience in the field.
For two weeks we rode incredible Marwari horses across the desert, volunteered at remote hospitals and schools, and met the most appreciative, gracious people. We enjoyed daily siestas, delicious food and fireside chats with our fellow riders ! I signed up for an adventurous vacation but somewhere in the Rajasthan desert found myself on a magical journey. I returned stateside to find myself forever altered precisely because I did step into the uncertainty. And I came home feeling more alive because of it."

The RRI Mission
We have successfully completed our 2010 Relief Rides!
Our journey this winter took us through a remarkable new region in Southern Rajasthan with stunning landscapes and abundant wildlife.
These rides, our first since 2007, brought together a new, dynamic Relief Riders team whom along with our riders delivered much needed help to rural villagers. RRI also marked the successful debut of its dental surgery program.
Please look forward to our next newsletter as it will include a colorful and informative account of our Relief Rides as well as a vibrant and heartwarming slideshow. For those of you were not able to join us, we hope to give you a small taste of what we experienced on our Relief Rides this winter.
To give you ample time to organize your schedules, we are excited to announce the dates of three Relief Rides in 2010/11.
This year we are providing you with a greater range of opportunities to ride with us in India. We have scheduled one Relief Ride a month starting in December 2010, January and February, 2011.
Have you made plans for the New Year yet? Consider joining us on an unforgettable, heartwarming and fulfilling New Year’s Relief Ride as we ride into 2011 while helping others.
Luni New Year’s Relief Ride:
December 28th, 2010 to January 12th, 2011.
Narlai Relief Ride:
January 25th to February 9th, 2011.
Sadarsamand Relief Ride:

For 2010-2011 we’re limiting the number of riders per Relief Ride to 12.
There are still spaces available on all of our rides. We are encouraging riders to reserve their spaces soon as the rides tend to fill up quickly.
I hope all of you have a wonderful summer.
