I have only recently signed up for the trip but very excited!
Cycling experience currently limited to cycling to work/a 1-day cycle around the Forest of Dean (limited hills!) and spinning classes BUT hoping excessive rowing training over the years will stand me in good stead :S
Good idea to head out earlier and see the Taj. Hope your training is going well so far- if you have any good tips, send them my way!
Hi there... or g'day in my case, as I'm coming from Australia so will probably be meeting most of you halfway, ie India. Looking forward to the trip. I've been to Leh before, though l I went in on the big metal bird not the little metal bike, so I think this will be a different and better experience... altitude permitting. It's a gorgeous area so can't wait to see it all at slow pace.
Hello and g'day to you both! It's hilly enough where I live, but not exactly the Himalayas. I've restricted myself to short hops in the hills. Hoping the knees will hold up, but I hear there's a wonderful bus tour of the Himalayas (It is a supported tour, so at least there's an option :))
The only good tip I came across was to emulate the effects of altitude by breathing through your nose whilst training - You decide! :) Got a bit of advice from one of the Exodus staff that has done this tour; Bring lots of layers - because the weather's pretty changeable - and hire a down sleeping mat (presumably in India rather than UK).
I have a feeling this week at work is going to drag.... roll on thursday! :)
You shall have the pleasure of my company on this trip!
Just got back from Canoeing in Hungary, frantically unpacking, washing then packing again.
If it makes you feel better not been on my bike since May!!
Flying in from Manchester so will hopefully see you all in Dehli Airport. Also planning on going to Taj afterwards.
Looking forward to meeting you all. One quick question, is anyone taking diamox with them to help with the altitude? I've heard mixed opinions on the pros/cons of this. My own preference is not to take anything, simply as I'm not a fan of medication unless absolutely necessary, but at the same time, I don't want to be the only one suffering.
Very true - maybe I'll pack some Green & Black's if I can squeeze it into my already burgeoning backpack.
