Thank You, Thank you, Thank you, Thank you a million times. I cannot stop thanking Dare2Gear and its entire team for this fabulous event. This is something which I would recommend to every rider as this is once in a lifetime opportunity. The year 2020 was tough for all of us with the pandemic however the best thing that happened to me during that year was being associated with Dare 2 Gear and meeting its director Mr Tarun Wadhwa who introduced me to weekend rides and had confidence on me to complete 140 kilometers from Noida to Khurja on 22nd November and there has been no looking back since then. In December I joined team Dare 2 Gear for Meraki 3.2 Delhi to Amritsar to Wagah border and managed to complete 560 kilometers on cycle whoa what an achievement it was. I was a bit apprehensive initially to go for the golden triangle ride however Mr. Tarun Wadhwa had confidence in me and said that I will be able to complete it and that is when I registered for this great event.
I always used to think that I do not have any talent and Tarun turned me from a stone to diamond. Even my family members cannot believe that I was able to complete 750 kilometers in 3 days on a bicycle. Needless to say, the support that team Dare 2 Gear provides us during our rides is out of the world be it nourishment or technical support you name it, and they are there for you. Special thanks to the support team trio of Mukesh, Gurpreet and Surya. On the first day to Jaipur, it was quite sunny on Friday afternoon and I was struggling with the heat on my MTB cycle and was riding slow. When Tarun noticed this, he instructed his support team to give me a road bike instead so that I could ride with reduced efforts and there was no looking back then, I managed to complete entire 270 kilometers on day 1to Jaipur and then 240 kilometers on day 2 from Jaipur to Agra we were welcomed by professors of Bharatpur university on reaching Bharatpur and then on Reaching Agra we checked in to our hotels. The next morning i.e., day 3 we went riding to see the Taj mahal and then begin our journey back home to Delhi and we were given a hero?s welcome on reaching Delhi. Also, during the entire trip our amazing memories were captured by the photographer Ritesh. I recommend all riders to take a trip at least once with Dare 2 Gear and experience their services and I am sure all riders will be delighted. If you want wonderful memories and experience of your lifetime, I highly recommend be associated with dare 2 Gear just once and you will truly enjoy the experience just like I have.
Had an amazing time participating in 'Golden triangle Odyssey'. Everything was very well organised and the organisers were very supportive at every step...Completely worth it...!!!!
This was my first of its kind ride and there were a lot of doubts before ride but after i had a conversation with the team and how the ride is being managed i decided to participate along with my brother who also new to such ride but considering him my company i went on. The first day was full of excitement and energy and seeing the management by team i was assured that it was going to be fun. The team was very professional as well as friendly in taking care of all the requirements of the riders. They made sure we don't have to think of anything except paddling. It was a great experience and i made memories for life. ...
Yooohooo....A big shout out to Dare2Gear. The Golden Triangle Odyssy 2020 was a great success. Its because of you guys, that after a very long, I was able to live those days filled with adventure, adrenaline and lots of excitement. Though it was very challenging....but your top notch planning and splendid support made it a grand success. which I will cherish throughout the life.
When I was informed about this ride, I got curious to participate but I always used to think, I cannot do it. Then, with thousands of questions in my mind, I had a call with the mastermind Tarun Pushap Wadhwa. All of my queries were answered and he took full responsibility of total fun filled event.
Finally, I registered for the event, keeping in mind the support vehicle, which I could anytime board during the event.
Day one, I was scared but very positive to finish it without any issue. After a long day of riding my Van Rysel, I was not aware of the reward I was about to get after reaching Agra, an excellent, luxurious property to stay and rejuvenate. As promised, Dare2Gear lived upto all of my expectations, a big salute to your preparations guys, I was totally impressed.
Day two was a little longer than the day one but this time I decided to ride in company instead of riding solo. I was lucky enough to ride with like minded riders Kapil Kumar, Pushpraj Laleet Saxena, Gagan Sharma, Rahul Khurana, and many others, all of you are true riders and were great motivation to me...got to learn a lot from you guys.
One pertinent experience I would want to quote here. While in the way, I noticed that my bicycle chain was making some noise. Probably it required some lube. To my surprise, the moment I thought about the technical support, I saw Gurpreet stopped behind me and asked me if I needed support. Commendable, simply next level...I was impressed again.
Day two also ended at Jaipur with the great grand welcome at the hotel, this feeling can only be experienced, not expressed.
Day three started a little early and today, Jaipur welcomed us like superstars. All of the riders were greeted by Jaipur Riders and I actually felt so overwhelmed this time. One can only earn this kind of gesture and it cannot be bought at any cost. The true love showed by Jaipur today, was next level, which I will always remember. Happened to meet true bike lovers like Manu Sharma and others, Manu please convey my gratitude to your team.
While coming back to Delhi, today I was feeling a bit exhausted but trust me, the ride marshalls were always available whenever I needed them. Ritesh Harjai @Udit Sharma and Gurpreet, a big Kudos to you guys. Without your support, it would have been really difficult ????
After taking lunch at the Tawa Lilly, I rushed towards Delhi and finally reached India Gate at 10pm.There at the venue, again I was welcomed by the GTO team and was presented with a beautiful finisher trophy, it was indeed a feeling of accomplishment.
Thank you once again every supporter....n you the reader...who by now got involved with this article, maybe...are always welcomed for further interaction...Catch up with you... Chao ...... ????
Recently I attempted Golden Triangle Odyssey with Dare2Gear team which was really fabulous and memorable expedition. They provided very good hydration, nutrition as well as mechanical support, we had to just call or share live location and they were there in few minutes. They had arranged one carrier vehicle, one 7 sitter car and a two wheeler with mechanical kit. Hotel stay were 4 to 5 stars. During ride they keep appreciating our efforts and achievements which boosting our moral energy to push more. I found they are very professional, have very good experience, positive attitude and down to earth.
I highly recommend Dare2Gear to all of you who are looking for adventure and fun in life, because "Adventure is where Dare2Gear is there" :).
I look forward to be associated with you and looking forward for future adventure trips.
