This was a long 10 day tour. Not everyone could spare that amount of time and hence people dropped out midway in planned fashion. Remember you have a bike to carry back home and options to transport it are limited and hence need to be planned in advance.
Thanks for the advice

The weights suggestion is interesting, will keep that in mind.

A special travelogue really.
Team BHP is the only place wherein we can get this variety.
Iam also a cyclist but never planned such long trips. Should find such group for taking it forward.

Just a minor correction. The date should have been 17-Dec-18 as day 9 was mentioned as 16-Dec-18.
