Vandit gets some tune up down. Boni, Saravanana and Sumit completes the gang. Later in the day, I came to know boni's had small accident ( he is all fine) that broke is RD hanger.
The much awaited first support station at around 80 km mark. Stocks a bike pumps and lot of gooodies like biscuits, chikkies, maaza, minute maids, enerzol. And the volenteers were owesome.
I happened to ride with Kumar ( rides a KHS) and his friend for around 15-20km. They took a break before the 3rd support station, and I carried on.
Sunil had taken a wrong turn somewhere in the first 50 km, and wandered off quite a bit. He caught me up at the 3rd service station, where we reached just at the right time for lunch. We met randel too there who was riding his bianchi via nirone 105. But it started pouring and we had a tought time getting a shelter. We set off when the rain eased off. I managed to hang on to Sunils wheel for the next 35 km till our final destination.
