    Thanx SRK, Raj, NKT for the support throughout....

    Dear All, Swaraj has calculated the expenses and the good news is that there is some excess money wth him.Likely that each of us will get a refund of Rs 350/- approximately in case you want it. Please revert to Swaraj on this. In case you do not want to collect it, there is a charitable foundation called' Help Arvind Chenji have a few extra beers ', to which you may consent to donate.
    Or else, we could put it on hold in your name for the next ride.
    cheers, Guys.

    Dear All,
    And as I say this, I really mean the'dear' part of the line. It has been a fantastic two days spent in the company of new friends who share the passion of cycling. Thank you one and all for making this ride so nice. A HUGE round of applause for the principal organizer, motivator, mover and shaker and founder of the ride, Dr Ramana Reddy. an epitome of selflessness if ever there was one.
    Thank you Anil, Komal, Anubhav, Swaraj, Swaroop, Sai Teja, Zuber, Raghu, Raghavan, Chaitanya, Naveen,Nagaphaneender, Dasarai,NKT, Harsha, Gaurav and of course the ever smiling Vishwanath. Have I missed out on anyone? I hope not. May the tribe flourish and again a special thanks to Swaraj for handling the moneys. The warmth of MRK in coming to see us off and the awesomeness of Rakesh meeting us at the other end of the ghat beyond the dam with Manish is difficult to describe. Thank you brothers.

  • simon p.

    hiii i wanna buy cycle which one do i need to buy can u suggest?

    June 20, 2013

    • Arvind C.

      Based on budget and how much you intend to cycle. Starts from below 10k to a couple of lakhs. A hybrid would be good for starting.

      June 20, 2013

  • ramana r.

    Yes your right uday, we need hill practice for srisailam ride with mtb

    hi, are we doing any practice rides around hitech city area? i have been cycling off and on; have an mtb and the longest i've done in the past year is ~100km and the exhaustion nearly killed me then. guess i'll require lots of practice with the uphill component in this.

    June 19, 2013

  • sailesh d.

    hi, i am new rider so pls suggest how to go about all

    June 17, 2013

    • Arvind C.

      Sailesh, Srisailam is a tough ride. I suggest you start getting regular practice rides at a comfortable pace. After a couple of weeks, try and exceed 50 kilometres a day including some uphills.If you are not able to do this, you might find the Srisailam ride hard to finish.

      June 19, 2013

  • Madhu Phani K.

    Hi, Iam starting cycling, pls advise me to get a best cycle.

    June 14, 2013

  • Ajay

    Is there a plan to start some training ride for this? Reason is that i have just started back my cycling after a gap of 2 year. I have 2 cycles "Hybrid" and "MTB", which one would be a better for Srisailam ride?

    June 7, 2013

    • Arvind C.

      Ajay, the Monsoon 100 next sunday is the start of preparation for the Srisailam ride.

      June 9, 2013

    • Arvind C.

      I would prefer a hybrid between the two. The route is tarmac and the difficulty will be in climbing. Lighter cycles will be an advantage.

      June 9, 2013

  • ramana r.

    One way distance: 87 km, Not easy ride with steep hills during entire ride. Return ride would be tougher than onward ride (almost 3200ft above sea level). (Mountain bike advisable).
    Approximate expense per person: Rs 2500/-
    Things to be carried: Helmet & Gloves, Spare tube, puncture kit, water bottles, energy bars, first aid kit, front & rear lights, Sunglasses/wind glasses ,rain ride jacket, some cash for emergency.

    Friends,

    The 75km ghat road ride from Mannanur to Srisailam (https://maps.google.co.in/?mid=1369548295) is very interesting route to cycle - a bit tough at the same time. We have two months time to practice. Dr. Ramana, Event Host for this ride is suggesting Preparatory Rides with hill training etc., beginning from 1st June with frequent interwells. Watch out for practice sessions.
