In just one month, 13 amateur cyclists and two support drivers from Spain, Germany and England will be meeting up in Munich on Monday 8th July to commence the 560km (348 miles) ride to Vienna. All riders are self-funding their rides and are aiming to raise funds in support of World Spine Care Europe!
It is always the stark juxtapositions that you are undeniably faced with in India that leave a lasting impression on me. Extravagant malls; remote rural populations without access to regular electricity. Smart businessmen travelling by train; sari-clad women carrying baskets of rice overhead walking for miles. Luxury hotels; woven mats to sleep on the floor. A bustling business district; those who cannot afford a day off work to seek medical advice.
