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 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

How seven college students come up with a solution to save lives of people from Snakebites

There was a time when India was known with a name which we never liked to hear and that name was the "land of snake charmers", it took us time to get away with that image, but yes certainly we are much more than that image, we are one of the fastest growing economy and 5th largest economy in the world now.

"Delayed treatment can be fatal, especially beyond six hours after the bite. In many parts of South Asia, only half of the p…
