The cyclothon is flagged off by Mr. TS Krishnamurthy, retired Chief Election Commissioner and Mr. Krishnaswamy, Business Head of TI Cycles. It was a wonderful event very well arranged by HelpAge and supported by many long-standing friends who attended to cheer me on.
In attendance was the indomitable Mrs. Kamachi Subramanium, 92 years, who says she is in no hurry to leave the world. In her words she loves to be with people, she loves talking to people and she loves the noise and buzz of people around her.
My steed for the ride lies perched on top of a TI Cycles support vehicle. With me are the friendly technicians who will be supporting me on the ride.
My cousin Brig. Mohan Bharathan makes a donation to HelpAge for their care projects for elders, the first of what may well be a copious flow.
Warm appreciation for the cause.
A light moment with very dear supporters of the cyclothon.
