Super Randonneur
Feeling accomplished! Now I am a Super Randonneur! This is a title awarded by ACP, France [] to those who complete a super series of BRMs or Brevets de Randonneurs Mondiaux [200KM in 13:30Hrs, 300KM in 20Hrs, 400KM in 27Hrs & 600KM in 40Hrs] in a calendar year. It’s a title that is valid life long.

I started cycling on 20th March 2018 and rode 8201KM+ in a total of 90 rides till 2nd September 2018 [BRM600 finishing date]. I also finished 21 challenges successfully and failed in one during these 5 months!

I lost 9.6Kgs & now have a dual skin tone as my arms and legs are sunburnt!

In the last 5 months I cycled hard each day so I could know this beautiful world of cycling so that I can capture a “Series” of photographs on cycling with some soulful images. Chapter one is completed successfully now and am excited to begin the next chapter... that is capturing this world through my lens…

The Challenges I completed in 5 months are:
#BRM200 [200KM in 11Hrs 32Mins] in May
#BRM300 [300KM in 18hrs 35Mins] in June
#BRM400 [Took 26Hrs 7Mins] in July
#BRM600 in Aug at Chennai/Couldnvt complete/Quit at 305KM

Thank you Mohan for your company in these last 5 months. Without you, it would ABSOLUTELY not be possible for me. Thank you for coming all the way to Bangalore and riding with me even after completing the series successfully in Chennai.

Thank you Kesavan for all our really early morning practice rides. Those rides made me a strong rider. I will always remember our “3AM cycling” rides for the rest of my life.

Thank you Hari Raju for all the tips to be successful in BRM and thank you Dr Srikant for insisting [infact forcing me] that I get a cycle.

Thank you Shiven for calling me regularly and encouraging me. Thank you Muralidharanji for giving me the front light during both of my BRM600.

Thank you Pro-Bikers for giving me a really good cycle and taking care of it so well. I felt the cycle was as new as the first day of my cycle after each servicing. You are the really best.

Thank you WCCG, the Chennai Cycling Group and it’s members, without all those group rides, I wouldn’t be able to continue my madness!

And last but not the least, Ipsita, my wife, my world. Thank you for everything, sponsoring me for this expensive hobby unwillingly, sacrificing your weekends and daily sleep [because of my early morning rides], getting angry on me that helped me to regulate my madness towards cycling. Whatever I do, I do to impress you and I will try to impress you continuously even in the future.
