In the quest to explore new location and try something different I took up this event as a challenge which after completing got to say that was challenge worth to be accepted. I know you will be eager to know what the event was; so this tour was 80km cycle marathon. Not exactly a marathon where we had to win by completing the circuit but rather it was more of a team event where all the fellow cycle mates were to drive in co-ordination to reach the
destination and keep on exploring the beauty of nature along the route.
This tour also helped me to test my ability and limits while at the same time I kept pushing my limits to achieve the goal (80km cycle drive and trek to Neelkanteshwar).
