A group of 30 persons from Ahmedabad, consisting of doctors, chartered accountants, engineers, businessmen and housewives, cycled more than 300 km from Udaipur to Guru Shikhar in Mount Abu.

The group consisting of 19 men and 11 women did the trek in four days in the Roads Soldiers cycling expedition cycling held recently.

The expedition was done in the Aravalli range while facing many odds like freezing cold, steep roads and hilly regions.

However, these working professionals found it full of fun as their main purpose was to create health and fitness awareness among the public at large. Dr. Siddharth Mavani, a nephrologist in Ahmedabad and member of Roads Soldiers group, said, we chose riding from Udaipur to Guru Shikhar – the highest point of the Aravalli Range which rises to an elevation of 1,722 metres.

The group comprised, among others, an eye surgeon, plastic surgeon, four dentists, a nephrologist, an anaesthetic, educationists, businessmen and a CA.

Commenting on the expedition experience, Dr Manish Raval, an eye surgeon said, Inspite of the age difference of the members in the group and types of cycles we possess we didn’t have any issue in the ride.
