2nd October, as we all know, is the birth anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi. He has been one of the most prominent figures in India’s Independence struggle. A tribute to the great man, by visiting his Pune connections on the cycle is what we thought we could do best, this Saturday, 2nd October 2021.
It’s a 40 kms moderate paced ride with a couple of stops for regroups, photo ops and some time to be spent at some of the locations which have a Gandhi Connection. The route is predominantly within Pune City and the traffic on a Saturday morning will be moderate.
Please carry spare tubes, a personal puncture repair kit, at least 2 liters of water, some snacks like biscuits and/ or dry fruits for energy and some glucose powder/ tablets. In addition to this, it’s advisable to carry a rain jacket and a plastic pouch for wallets and phones in case of rain.
Total time taken for the ride will be somewhere close to 4 hours, since we will be taking breaks for regroups, having conversations, spending some time at the different locations/ spots and clicking some great pictures, in addition to breaks that occur due to rains or anything else.
We will be a group of 30 cyclists max. So please confirm your seats at the earliest!
Let’s pedal to happiness everyone!!
