Tour Of Nilgiris (TFN) Cycling Event: 25th December 2008-1 January 2009
Several cyclists of Bangalore have got together and done a very professional job of putting together a Tour Of Nilgiris event, that will kick off from St Joseph’s at 6.30am on 25th December, and go through 919 km of mountainous terrain until the 1st January 2009.
Details of the Tour Of Nilgiris are at:
I am a cyclist, but I can’t participate, fossilized as I am (it would be, quite literally, the last thing I do!) I am drooling over the mental picture of the cyclists sailing through the incredible beauty of the Nilgiris….I can do *that* quite well!
This is a great initiative which these guys have organized, and they have done such a great job of pulling it all together, involving this list of Bangalore people:
Title Sponsor and Food Caterer: Nilgiris 1905
Official Accessory Partner: Wildcraft
Official Radio Partner: Radio Indigo 91.9FM
Official Medical Assistance Partner: Manipal Hospital
Official Print Partner: Time Out Bengaluru
Official Documentation Partner: Flaunge
So anyone who is cycling out there…do visit the TFN site and register if you would like to participate…and if you can’t, or won’t, do come out, at least, on the morning of 25th of December and cheer these people on..they are a great mixed lot, starting from a 11-year old!
