What to bring? Here is the #SAMBAR Rider Checklist (https://www.dropbox.com/s/rstxdl0xdfjih8d/The_SAMBAR_Rider_Checklist_SAVES_LIVES.pdf?dl=0). Please download for your use. This is important. The #SAMBAR Rider Checklist SAVES LIVES.
Please note that this is a self supported ride, all riders will be subject to scrutiny to make sure they are able to ride this long distance. This is not a race, its a ride. Follow traffic rules. Ride with your group. Maintain sufficient distance between bicycles. Always be alert. Always watch your back. Motorists THINK they have right of way, respect that - they are bigger than us. While most cyclists generally stop to provide assistance, you must be prepared to fend for yourself. Your safety is in your hands. Reach out to fellow riders who are in need of assistance. General Instructions, do Warm up before your ride, hydrate with ORS at least 1 hour before the ride and at regular intervals, consume a light breakfast of at least 100 grms of carbs two hours before the ride.
Ride hard, Ride safe,

"Stayed at the amazing Jungle Wood Resort in Coorg, literally in the middle of a Jungle. The house is a 200 year old house managed by a family who has been running this for years. The silence, peace and 'no phone service' makes you feel so connected to the nature. Highly recommended if you just wanna run away! Huge shoutout to @townista. This was my first #TownistaTrip. Brilliantly arranged and such a hassle free experience. Much recommended if you are planning your next trip."
"It really saved me time and effort. Had amazing time with my friends. Much needed break."
"Loved Townista package. Everything was perfectly arranged. Felt personal."
