I had to undergo strict training regime, immaculate planning before event and relentless efforts by my support crew members. It tested my determination and all the endurance cycling experience. It was a wonderful event and the complete team had a wonderful time covering the length of incredible India i.e. from the beautiful valleys of Kashmir to sun-soaked beaches of Kanyakumari.
