To Goa on a bike

Finally after 3 months after the ride, here comes the trip log. Well they say, its better late than never :p

When was the last time you did something for the first time?

– few days before the ride I read this line somewhere on the net and struggled hard to remember one such thing which I did recently. But now after BN second annual meet, I have plenty to say.

  • First ride spanning more than 1000 KMs.
  • First group ride – 13 riders for 350 KMs & 19 riders for 30 KMs
  • First rain ride – soaked in rain and rode for 250 KMs.
  • First ride spanning 20 hours of continuous ride (including tea/coffee, brunch, butt breaks)
  • And lot more :)
