LUDHIANA WOMAN MEGHA CYCLIST DOES A TOUR-DE-NORTH, RIDES 1,000 KMs DELHI-ATTARI-DELHI

The Hush Post: If not a Tour de France, then at least a Tour De North is what Megha Jain (Shonaya ) a woman cyclist from Ludhiana can pride herself with. Megha yet again proved her mettle riding 1000 kms on cycle from India Gate, New Delhi to Attari also known as the Attari-Wagha border in Amritsar and then back. This was again an event organised by famous Delhi Randonneurs ultra Cycling club of Delhi under the leadership of Dr Chiro Mitra. This ride was not a race but needed to be finished under 75 hours which she did well in 74 hours and 45 minutes along with her rider partner Dr Pawan Dhingra. What makes her great and class apart is that she had just finished 1,500 kms of cycling in 7 days a fornight before this event and without using any personal security/support vehicle in the nights which she could have if she had wanted.
