I cycle almost daily, morning and also for short distances whenever possible, and specially on Sundays from Colaba to Bandra. Do let me know if anyone is interested ion joining me for these rides. Cheers!!!
Hi Jitendra :) great to hear from you. I have worked on our African trip from Cairo to Cape Town since 2005.. mostly as photographer/web writer/supporting the crew and clients... and have seen much of the route. Being African myself, I am probably biased, but I think it's the most awesome ride on the planet :) The sheer diversity of travelling through 10 African countries makes every day of it an incredible adventure. There is no doubt about it that's is challenging... average daily distance is around 110 km's...for 100 days if you do the whole thing... but many of the riders do a section or sections if they can't take four months out to do the whole thing. Great challenge brings huge reward... so for many of the riders it's a life changing experience...and many of them make a difference through using the ride to raise funds for particular causes. Over the past 7 years, over $1 million has been raised for various causes around the world.. with a fair chunk of that money being invested in various projects in Africa... so that's way cool. Hope this helps somewhat? Let me know if you have any other thoughts or questions.
Just wanted to know how you plan, (if you do plan to come) to travel for the Vasai ride...Let me know where you plan to start your ride from or if you will be coming to SGNP or taking a train to Vasai...Will help in planning the event...Want to make sure that no one gets left behind...Thx
