I've just returned from a 4 day cycle ride in Rajasthan! We flew to Delhi, caught the sleeper train to Jodhpur, where we picked up local single gear bikes and proceeded to ride to a small village that my company supports in Udaihpur, called Udawad!
We donated the bikes to the local children who will find it easier (and much more fun) to reach the school that we've helped them build.
The total mileage of our cycle was 260km, across some truly awful terrain: potholes like you wouldn't believe (there really was no point in signaling to the cyclist behind), stream crossings, crazy traffic and cow dodging!
There were 64 riders plus a support crew. We were given 2 branded cycle jerseys to wear on various days, but I couldn't resist flying the Phoenix colours on the 2nd day (see attached), which were most admired by all. Felt very proud :) happy
Many pics were taken on 63 other cameras, so will send through any more snaps of the Phoenix colours in India as and when I see them.

I have taken some 200+ pics today of which this is a selection. If anyone fancies getting the whole lot or a high resolution one of their picture(s) just drop Andy an email:-) I have several pictures of everyone who raced today. Mel x

Our Saturday morning ride turned into an all day ride for the off-roaders as Keith and Andy enticed us over the downs and through the beautiful Colekitchen valley to Gomshall.From there we followed Route 22 back to Dorking via Denbies .A real Corker.(Posted by S.M.)
