Starting Februart 27, 2019, I will going on an 8500+ km intercontinental adventure from India to Germany on a tandem bicycle picking up random strangers and friends along my way to help raise awareness and funds to combat Human-Trafficking and End Polio.
The Indian Pacific Wheel Ride – A solo, single-stage, unsupported, 5,500km road cycling race ocean-to-ocean across Australia from Fremantle, Perth to Opera House, Sydney. I wa riding 5,500km through deserted and treeless Nullarbor plain, wineries districts, rolling hills, full length of the world famous Great Ocean Road, and a mountainous 1,000km final sector through the heart of the Australian Alps eventually finishing at the Opera House in Sydney.
For Freedom Seat Australia, I partnered with IJM Australia
A solo, single-stage, unsupported, 3330 km tandem cycling adventure from Cape Reinga in the North to Bluff in the South. I picked up strangers and friends along my way to join me in this expedition that combined the simplicity of biking with the fun twist of riding a tandem bike.
I’ll invited strangers and friends to take up the rear seat and help pedal for a cause. During the ride, I was listening to their stories and sharing about the campaign. My goal was to connect with people at a more meaningful level and sharing stories about these young children who do not have freedom, a story that would make people care.
For Freedom Seat Australia, I partnered with TEAR Fund NZ
As a child who was born and raised in a suburb of Chennai in South India, I dreamt big which at that time appeared ludicrous and completely unattainable. I was on the downside of advantage and I had to rely purely on hard work, courage and kindness of people. No matter what your dreams are, “It’s Possible”.
I watched Lord of the rings in 2001 and a child like dream ws born. I wanted to make New Zealand my home, one day. It took 13 long years for that dream to come true. After having granted a resident visa, I started a new chapter of my life in New Zealand. Upon entering the country, I ran/hiked the Te Araroa trail — a trail that runs the length of NZ (3054km) unsupported in 87 days. During this adventure I partnered with Tearfun NZ and raised funds for anti-sex trafficking cause. I was awarded the runner-up for the Wilderness Outdoor Hero of the Year for this feat.
