About The Event

Ride Abstract
-------------
Morachi Chincholi is a village of tamarind trees and peacocks. The village is about 65km from Pune. There are 2500+ peacocks living in and around village. Since peacocks are early risers and smart, just like cyclists, we have to reach village early in the morning. In case you don't know, peacocks spend their quality morning time chanting EDC mantra...Eat, Drink and Chase (hens). While peacocks are busy with EDC mantra, we paparazzi ( read cyclists) will surreptitiously follow their every move, take snaps and publish them on SUN tabloid and social media. We will also visit Malhar Krishi Paryatan Kendra (MKPK) campus to enjoy other attractions. So, pals put on your cycling gear, strap on your helmet, mount on the saddle and start your ride to Morachi Chincholi!
