The total distance will be around 1200 kilometres. I have been to most of these places by car, bus and train and never by cycling. 2021 presented me with one oppurtunity and 2022 another. The ride is going to commence on the new year day of 2022. With only three days to go, i am busy preparing for the ride. Hope i will return with many stories and hopefully will post them here.
I am really super excited for this trip. It was a long awaited one. And i have so much to write. See you all after the trip.
