The second edition of the Tour of Nilgiris, the longest organised ride in the country, is scheduled for 15 December. It is also perhaps the most scenic ride as it exposes riders to the incredible bio-diversity of the Nilgiris.
For everyone new to this forum, and there are quite a few, the Tour of Nilgiris (or TFN) is a 900 km bicycle ride over 8 days. It’s the kind of thing that killer bike rides are made of. This year, 70 people will go on the ride.
You can check out the TFN blog at http://www.tourofnilgiris.com/blog09/
and catch up with the action (and there is plenty of it).
