LBO is at Tour of Nilgiris 2018 sharing all the live action from Mysuru. It’s almost time for the tour to come to an end. Everyone has mixed feelings, the happiness of completing the bike tour and the sigh of leaving. The riders have had a time of their lives these 8 days. Read on to know more about the last few days.
Ooty to Kalpetta
The riders went whirling all the way down today. Heading towards Pykarra with the wind blockers on, it was an epic downhill ride. They rode the gradual Naduvattam – Gudalur rolling terrain instead of steep Kalhatti. Leaving behind the tea estates of Ooty, the rider’s rode around 140 kms back to Kerala. It was admirable to see how skilful the riders are in tackling the downhill ride.
Kalpetta to Mysuru
This was the last stretch and the riders went back to from where they started. Covering a total of 66kms today, they cherished this last ride as they were passing through teak forests and riding parallel to the river Kabini. They let the fresh air filter their minds and the happy vibes soak in as they headed back. At the lunch point the cycles were wrapped up and the cyclists were taken via a bus to Mysuru for the cool off party.
It’s Party Time
The riders can hardly get out of their beds; some of them are battered but celebration are in order and they are all up for the madness ahead. It has been a hell of a tour and after tonight, each one of the them has a marvelous story to tell. The riders were felicitated at the award ceremony and infinte pictures were taken. Everybody indulged in a lavish dinner and dancing, remember these guys have controlled their diet, maintained their nutrition and now it was time to indulge in the feast! And then hit the dance floor. The whole experience of sharing memories with the riders and core team has been splendid. We’re taking back a box of memories with us which kept us warm in the cold winters. We learnt, we worked, we lived, this couldn’t get better. Looking forward to next TfN tour; until then it’s a wrap!
