Last updated on: June 21, 2011 19:21 IST

Roads, these are the places which give us a chance to enjoy our beautiful machines. But the world is so big and the roads are so vast, we simply can't know which is the best road to ride our performance bikes. So what do we do? Well, nothing much really as Shell has announced the hunt for the ultimate riding wonder of the wonder.

What is it? Basically The Seven Riding Wonders of the World poll gives a chance to biking enthusiasts around the world to vote for their choice. It gives them an opportunity to decide which road, track or riding experience is the best in the world.

This contest is open till August 31, 2011.
