Bharani Sivakumar and Vasanth for organizing the Tour of Tamilnadu, the 900 kms cycle trip. I got selected among the 35 riders and this really rekindled my interest in serious cycling. The Tour of Tamilnadu turned out to be a fabulous exerience.
Suresh Kumar for being patient with me and recommending a cycle that not only fit my cycling taste but also my wallet. I picked up a Schwinn Searcher.
Sooramangalam Thatha for being an early influencer in my life. He was one of the richest in the village but would still cycle to his fields on his cycle. He removed the stigma that only poor people cycle.
