I will be sharing detailed information of this event as we proceeded day by day...Shavan Rishi Temple @ Kullu-Sarahan.. This village was at 3250 meter height and we had our third halt here.. It was a lovely village surrounded by snow covered hills.. Mornings and evenings were chilling out there, but temperature during the day time was ok...New rider on every turn - On Every turn, you have a challenger to overtake...There were 76 riders in this event and I am fan of all of them by seeing their passion about cycle riding... Everyday they used to ride 50-90 kilometers... If there is some problem on the way, they fix it themselves and move on... Every night they used to service their bikes and do some test rides around camp side... Most of them were expert in repairing their machines ... Heated Ride - Riders crossing chilling Forests on Himalayas... On second last day we were crossing through a very dense forest and everyone was shivering with the cold... I mean all photographers... We were enjoying this fire in woods and saluting these riders who were not wearing anything warm.... Wondering Souls...Clicked near Shavaad village in Kullu Districts where two folks were sitting on the road-side to see this rally of riders from various parts of the world.... Peer Group @ Kullu-Sarahan, Himachal Pradesh, INDIA ... Man at Work : Real men behind excellent infrastructure in Himalayas... Solar Kick - Wohooo... Side please... I enjoy down-hill rides... Explosion - Come on... I am fastest element on this earth... Rest time... Blowing with the wind - About to hit the car on a sharp turn.. But MBT Riders are extremely talented to handle all these situations.... Silhoutte of a Rider against mountains and sparkling water stream...

Explosion - Come on... I am fastest element on this earth...
