At the start line of the event the weather was so pleasant.

During this ride we had a simple rich food theory . Which is lighter in weight but sufficient to full fill need of energy like for carbs we have boiled potato or sweet potato / veggies rice / breads for fiber and calories we have different type salad and juices like sugar cake juice / mix fruit juice / dates sandwichs / for energy we have ice cream/ chocolates / protein bars / cookies and to keep hydrated we have lots for water some times mixed with Ors or gulucone d sachets

The hardest part is the flyovers we covered near about 400 bridges and the hot weather because the temperature goes upto 38 degree in day time and we also faced harsh head wind that is the toughest thing on a long journey
