I received an invitation by my fellow rider Anubrata to join a ride to show solidarity towards the devastating earthquake in Nepal. The ride was organised by few veteran cyclist of Delhi. They were inviting all Delhi-NCR cyclists to ride towards the Nepalese Embassy near CP and donate whatever they can which can be used in the relief operation in Nepal.
We reached the embassy at around 7am and we were greeted by the cyclists who were already there. Soon, more than one hundred cyclists gathered in front of the embassy gate.
The gathering was first addressed by the organisers which was followed by a thank you note by the ambassador-designate of Nepalese Govt. Mr. Deepak Kumar Updadhyay.
