Hi Pradip.
I have personally done "Solobackpacing trips" in India and abroad, later writing blogs on my experience for the benifit of future "Backpacker tourists". Travelling alone in either a foreign country or India is dangerous, akin to "Cycling" alone in unfamiliar terrain and country's as there is no "GROUP SUPPORT" akin to "Package Tours" or " Peloton Cycling".A person should religiously study the "Culture", "Political climate"" terrain" and "social customs" of the country's to be visited to avoid tragedies or mishaps, the rest being "Destiny".Sad about French cyclist Jean Baptist going "Missing" in India and these incidents are not rare as some foreiners have been found "Missing" during "treks' in the "Kullu Valley" and beaches of Goa.Similarly "Indian Tourists" have gone missing in Foreign country's proving that such incidents occur all over the World.Ultimately, its destiny and a thorough study of the visting country's or places that can offer a safe journey to either a "Solo Cyclist" or a "Solo Backpacker".

Cycling is great Cardiovasculor exercise & a perfect attention who do not like Walking Jogging or who have Orthopaediclimitation with regard to weight bearing exercises this is because cycling is easy on joint beside being a great help in promoting cardio respiratory healthy cycling helps decreasing body fat strengthens lower back muscles & increases the stability quotient of the upper body.Iwish to explore more places &KEEP MY BODY FIT &HEALTHY THROUGH OUT MY LIFE.THANKS
