Tks for you update. Let me introduce my self, I am retired bloke age 61 fairly good health.i own a brompton (folding). I ride every week to Manori jetty from Mira road.about 50klm up and down. Like to join on some trip.
Thanks a lot for your comment for my blog. I am just back from Kanyakumari. I pedaled aroond 800 kms from Bangalore to Kanyakumari alone from 15.12.10 to 22.12.10 creating Polio Awareness amongst people en route. I was representing Rotary International Dist 3190 and Rotary Bangalore Whitefield Central club in particular. It was a wonderful & memorable journey. Regards, RG Bhat, Bangalore
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".
Hi Rudolph 2yrs back ie in 2007 when I heard about Jean Baptist French Cyclist missing from India Mumbai Andheri I was Shocked & Indian Police are the 2nd No in world to find missing /culprits Last month his Father/Mother were in city to find their son returned with no hopes this is verry verry bad this should not be happen it is shame on Indian govt, my friend Mr Rajesh Khandekar of Thane had gone for World cycling tour in 19 july2009 about 21 countries he is going well no Problem ,if this happens to him How we/Indiancyclist & their family will feel. Iam verry sentimental It hurts me when I think about it this should nat be happen to any one.Thanks
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
