I want to ride this route as it is very scenic , Beautiful , and most challenging route touching western most border and eastern most part of Arunachal Pradesh border of India with huge distance 3800+ km appx.
I have used two bikes Merida road bike and Merida Hybrid and used Garmin 955 solar and 735 for GPS tracking.
I use to take small brakes for hydration and refueling myself with coconut water, Butter milk, cheese , peanut, Cadburys, protein shakes, Dal rice, etc.
The best part is I am able to finish strong inspite of very bad road conditions full of gravels in AP , elevation, weather , Headwind , terrain etc.
The Hardest part of ride was last 2 days in Arunachal as sunsets by 4 pm so days were going shorter and have to ride most of the time in dark with very bad roads and ups and downs. I have finished strong @Maj Bipin Rawat Dwar kibithu Arunachal Pradesh India. Dedicating this ride to all women who dare to dream something diff and challenging unbelievable in her life .
