Happy Cyclist’s
    • Like all my other GMC's, Even this, SBI-GMC2014 was very well-organised in the new format and also it was a nice opportunity to see the Malnad on Cycle. GMC was always special to me and is the best bicycle tour in India, since we only cycle on relatively quiet roads and even go to places where you do not see and hear any motor traffic; a rare luxury in India. The terrain in GMC is mostly uphill and downhill, but mostly ‘Malnad flats ’ roads.

    • The seven days at SBI-GMC 2014 were definitely some of the best days of my life. The route chosen for the ride is awesome, and the execution was almost perfect. The markings, timely snacks, breaks, food, stay, photography everything was well planned and arranged.

    • I started cycling since June 2014. Before that I didn ’t even know how cycle gears operate (though I ride gear bikes on roads. This sounds ironical :-) My first group ride with my fellow mates in Tech Mahindra Cycling club was a great experience that boosted my confidence to take up this sport for fitness. Though I enjoyed riding almost every week with the group, I had never even thought of participating in any event of more than a 100 Kms. But then, I thought of giving a try and extending the mental boundaries.

    • When I saw the article about GMC in THE HINDU, I couldn't resist me from registering for the event. I applied for long leave and went to Madikeri for GMC. Being a SBI employee, the sponsorship by my bank was a support for me to get leave. It was tough and enjoyable at the same time. Most of the ride was through the most beautiful places in Karnataka. For me, GMC was all about new friends, fun and seeing places that not many get the chance to see. I got the opportunity to meet some wonderful guys, some insane too.

    • Riding uphill, on a warm October afternoon at a slow and steady pace, I kept telling myself "stay calm, you have a long way to go". I had to preserve my energy for the final 3 kilometers to the peak. I was one of the 45 cyclists riding on the 4th day of Great Malnad Challenge - 2014. We had started off from Madikeri and had cycled to Chikmagalur covering 260km off road trails in 3 days on MTB.
