900 km in 95 hrs !!!
Hey adventure freaks, cycling enthusiasts and all those reading this, your eyes might have been widen and eye brows up. Yes! It did happen to me as well, when my friend, Extreme Yashas laid his idea about riding 900 kms alone in just 95 hours in 4 days. I wondered, he is crazy, but his craziness is what makes him so determined, and passionate about cycling.
Passion Work Wonders! His, has worked for him immensely that today, he is in the verge of enrolling his name into The Limca book of world records. Not only this, he is one among the youngest entrepreneurs and e-leader of e-cell MSRIT, Bangalore. He also has a Cycling Association by the name Extreme Cyclist Association®. Yashas has a big dream about having Green Revolution and to take cycling sport to its peak, in the country. Hence to spread the same message, he has taken this extraordinary challenge of riding 900 kms in 95hrs in 4 days, through 9 districts of Karnataka.
Yashas was flagged off for this record ride by the Chief Project coordinator & Mentor of EDC MSRIT, Miss Rekha S K in the presence of friends, Extreme Cyclist Association® members and all the well wishers, on 28th January 2010, at 5 pm from Sports Complex MSRIT, Bangalore-54. He will be going through the following route, Bangalore->Tumkur->Chitradurga->Shimoga->Thirthahalli->koppa->Sakaleshpura->Kushalnagara->Mysore->Bangalore. The ride will be completed in the same venue where it started off, ie MSRIT, Sports Complex. He will be received by The honorable Chairman of M S Ramaiah Institute of Technology, Mr M R Seetharam, with all the well wishers. So lets wish Yashas, a good luck & success for his brave attempt.
