Vodafone Cycling Marathon - 'Cycling WON'...!!!!

You and me having a job is an indication it is not a perfect world, there is lot of work to do. Sorry if i am disappointing you, i am not going to write about what went wrong and what went right (for that you can check here).  Some where something went wrong that is why we are there in this world is not it, do not know, just saying. Who am i to say what is the right of doing something, then i should not be writing this, be 'just doing it'. Then you must be wondering why this blog post, as i was going through the Face book pages, saw countless photos clicked and uploaded. Also to my surprises there was not single photographer or a biker was able to do justice to the entire event, juts in case if someone missed the event and want to have a glance at it. What that means it was impossible to be there everywhere and covering it, because so much was happening in so many places. It is an attempt in doing that, i do not say i did a justice, made an attempt. Already two of my good friends have done an awesome job in writing it from a different perspective, first Rahul raj dusa and Bike venky. Credit goes to all the wonderful people who spent lot of time and energy in clicking these beautiful photos, caption below is my thoughts to make it little more interesting and connect these images one to another and throw a light about my perspective. One thing i know with this Cycling won big time and that is what this city needs too.......
