The rider who writes the posts has started going to the gym from today and is unavailable to write captions. So we thought we will run a small contest this time. Nothing lucrative - "Best caption for this picture" will get a postcard from the postbox nearest to the Fuji mountains. We will ensure it will be filled with fun and love. Btw, this was taken moments after all 3 met together for the first time. Guess we liked each other. Some of us did atleast, as evident in the pic ;) . #postcard #fuji #meeting #firstmeeting #caption #contest #worldonwheels #roadtotokyo #olympics2020 #tokyo #worldbybike #bikewander #bikecamping #biketour #slowtravel #explorebybike #pedalforever #biketocamp #thegreatoutdoors #travelbybike #allaboutadventure #cicloturista #cyclingabout #cycletouring #bikelife #outsideisfree #spendlifetraveling #cycletourism #biketouringforever #happiness

The Three-cyclists Haseeb Ahsan, 32 works with Amazon in Bangalore, Dona Jacob 29, works with TCS and Cliffin Francis, 29, a freelance teacher are set to undertake this cycling marathon starting from Kochi, Kerala on 15th December 2019, this cycling marathon will conclude in Olympic Stadium, Tokyo Japan, on the opening day of Tokyo Summer Olympics 24th July 2020.

Interestingly neither of three cyclists are professional cyclists, all motivated by sheer passion of travelling and common interest in sports, they have planned to spread awareness of a cause which is rarely discussed in Indian schools, "Mental Health" during their journey. The trio have planned on associating themselves with certain NGOs that will help them visit schools every week where they will spread awareness about the importance of a healthy mind. And they are going to talk about not one, but two stigmatised issues, other one being menstrual health and hygiene.

They have also planned, that they would carry a poster with them on the tour and gather best wishes for the Indian contingent participating in the 2020 Summer Olympics to cheer them on.

On their journey, Cliffin, Dona, and Haseeb are going to be on the road for 222 days, during which they will pass through Bangalore, Visakhapatnam, Bhubaneswar, Calcutta, Meghalaya, and Mizoram within India before cycling through Bangladesh, Thailand, Laos, Vietnam, China as they head to Japan.

They have setup an Instagram Page "@snails.on.wheels" for sharing their experience which has now (as of my writing this post) around 800+ followers, they will be documenting their long embarked journey through social media platforms like YouTube and Instagram. Their YouTube channel will launch on the day their trip will commence.

Meeting buddies in Cochin tomorrow. Cochin has something similar to Cayo Jutias. Cayo Jutias, Cuba. A true paradise for most part of the day with secluded beaches, turquoise waters, beautiful sunset and starry skies. When I asked directions to Jutias to couple of Amigos, they warned me about certain buzzing-winged pests and advised not to camp there. Me, having staying in Cochin for a good part, brushed aside all these warnings and decided to camp there. The above pic was taken just before all ran with all paraphernalia from the beach. Imagine a Roman army of big fat mosquitoes chasing you. Multiply that by 10. That's what I ran from. #olympics #tokyo #tokyojapan #cycling #tokyo2020 #travel #bike #cycling #cyclinggirl #cyclingwomen #worldonwheels #worldbybike #biketour #explorebybike #pedalforever #thegreatoutdoors #travelbybike #cycletouring #bikelife #outsideisfree #bikestagram #cycletourism #biketouringforever #roadbike #cyclist #camping #tent #cuba #cayo #cayojutías #mosquito

Mahatma Gandhi Quotes

There is a saying in Hindi "Lakhon Mein Ek" (Which loosely translates to "One among Millions" in English), but for legends like Mohandas Karamchand Gandhi, who is an inspiration to almost entire population of earth, this Hindi colloquial proverb should change to "Arbon Mein Ek" ("One among Billions").

To start with, let me share my favourite Quote of Mahatma Gandhi, although some say Gandhi never said this, but this quote is attributed to him only.
"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."

"Be the change that you wish to see in the world.""Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.""An eye for an eye will only make the whole world blind.""Happiness is when what you think, what you say, and what you do are in harmony.""When I despair, I remember that all through history the way of truth and love have always won.
