Did a 140 km cycling trip from Chennai to Puducherry. It was quite an experience as this was an impromptu trip and the longest i had been on the cycle. Exhausted and tired, i had decided to hitch a ride back to Chennai the next day.
If riding up to pondicherry was an adventure , the return was all the more adventurous. Two small lifts , both on the back of tempo trucks. Finally stranded about 90 km from Chennai and no rides for next 2 hours. In the meantime the onlookers came to my respite , stopped the reluctant ECR roadways bus , got me a seat , one fellow fetched rope and the other climbed up the bus to tie the cycle.
Thanks to them , back, yet another story of kindness on roads..
