Story

As we started early we got to see this beautiful morning sunrise
A prefect spot for all the people who wanna take a pic of themself or their bike with statue of unity ,this place is a helipad from where we get view
A after ride selfie is a must with the monument
It was a winter morning and as we knew we had to go a long distance we started a bit early in the dark with quiet some layers. As i started the ride from my home it was quit cold and my body wasn't even warm-uped yet. then I reached the meeting point to meet the group where everyone was very happy as we doing a epic group ride after a long time. then we started our ride with some music playing in phones and someone brought a speaker.
After around 30km we took out first halt  to have some indian masala tea and some food. Still everyone was filled full of energy and excitement . after the halt when we started riding again the heat started increasing very quickly which caused difference in riding speed of the whole group.
I was the first one and still going strong . When I glanced    behind to see who all where coming with me there was no one there, I decided to continue forward giving them a heads up about what was to come.
What ahead   was some climbing , very strong head winds and the sun was coming higher and higher and the heat wasn't going anyless . Anyhow we rode through all of this and then when 10km were left we saw the actual gate of the entrance to the monument and we all forgot our pain and and rode even faster to reach there.
Once we reached there everyone was very happy and all of them had forgotten the pain they had gone through . Everyone was taking  pictures and eating something and enjoying . But then as the temp went over 40 degrees we did not find a good thing thing to ride back as and because of the heat anyone could get sick . So we arranged  some vehicles for us and our bikes to go back . Still this was a very happy moment for everyone that everyone did remember

*this ride was rode when there was no lockdown
