Real Engineers of INDIA

First Riding stretch on second day of MTB 2010 - Shainj to Chhaila : Posted by VJ SHARMA at : Hope you have already seen photographs of Flag-Off, First Day Rides, Morning Preparations on Second Day and some glimpses of MTB Himachal 2010... Here are few Photographs of first Stretch between Shainj and Chhaila...Here are few riders who are leading the first stretch which started just after Shainj Village... Unexpectedly weather was clear on second day and everyone was happy and all the riders were excited about the Hike & Bike session after completion of first Stretch at Chhaila Turn... Here is a Photograph clicked on the way from Shainj to Chhaila... Sharing this photograph to just give an idea about the hills and roads we traversed on second day... It doesn't mean that whole stretch on second day was like this... A reflection of the walking rider.. This is clicked in the side mirror of our van which was moving towards the next halt near a Bridge next to Shainj... Actually it was a free ride from the camp-site till a Bridge(don't know the name of that place..)Bikers on lovely road surrounded by beautiful mountains in Shainj region... it was amazing place but unfortunately we couldn't afford to stop at this place... So most of the photographs have been clicked from moving car...This road was under construction and here are the hard working folks who are going to work there to make our lives easy and more comfortable... Real engineers of India !!!There were many water streams on the way and here is one silhouette  of a rider moving towards first goal without any care about various types of obstacles on the way...Here is Rider No 13 crossing the same water stream... I have lot of photographs of various riders at same spot and planning to have separate post with all those Photographs in near Future... Keep watching the same place to check out more photographs here...So finally we reached Chailla Turn and this was the destination for first stretch for second day.. Now everyone is having some snacks and juice to gear up for Hike & Bike session of 12 kilometers....One of the rider just reaching the final line of first Stretch and folks in the background are noting down the time... There were three timers to ensure that correct timings have been noted for all the riders...Here comes another rider to reach the final destination and have some rest for next stretch... During next Stretch everyone had to trek some mountains with their bikes ... It was really hard and some of them had to carry bikes weighing 21 Kgs... Their were only few bikes which had weight around 7-10 kgs and these cost more than 2 Lacs... (Please leave a comment in case this information is not correct.. coz I am not 100% sure about these figures)Here is a group of riders having some chit-chat during rest session at Chailla Turn...I think he is sad about the fact that he is leaving MTB today.. He was only for first two days which they called Environmental Ride...A part of the MTB Himachal Gang taking rest in bright sunlight which was very important on chilly hills of Himachal Pradesh...Bikes : Now its our turn... Carry us forward... Check out the same place for photographs of trekking riders by carrying their bikes on shoulders...
