FIVE MONTHS FROM INDIA

We're five months out from our planned 2,000-mile ride up through the heart of India. Bicycle India 2007 will commence on December 28 in Nagercoil at the southern tip of India. Our trek will take us northward through Bangalore, Hyderabad, Nagpur, and an early February finish in New Delhi. This January 2006 photo was taken near Yavotmal in Maharashtra state while we were exploring and mapping possibilities for the ride; Joe James is on the left, I'm on the right. Last evening, our team leader Bob Yardy and I made a presentation about the excursion to over 500 people. We're riding to raise awareness of Umri Christian Hospital...and to raise $400,000 to rebuild this 100-bed, 50-year old facility that serves the rural poor of central India.
