The journey started when three of us left one morning for a 100 km ride on hired cycles to Cauvery Fishing Camp (off Bangalore), we came back surprised, out of our comfort zones, enthralled by the outdoors and moved by the simple living in the countryside. We had ridden out of the city for 60 km and were sitting under a statue of Mahatma Gandhi discussing the ride till then. Then we realized for some bicycle is a utility, for others it is a revelation of human potential and endurance, and for many more it is a new and unique experience – a perfect way to discover the heart of the country.
