While we want our fellow TfN riders to enjoy the Nilgiris, we also want participants who have the physical ability and training to ride and finish the course - it is a cycling tour and best enjoyed on the bike. If someone rides most of the tour on the bus, or has to pull out due to predictable injury, it affects their enjoyment of the tour.
The number of riders is limited to 130 or below. Our attempt is to accommodate 130 but this number could be revised keeping in view inputs from the forest officials as we traverse through some of the most pristine forests in India.
Due to this, the participation on the Tour will be by invitation only - we will consider a variety of reasons including your cycling experience & your reasons for riding the tour, and select those riders who we feel can contribute to, and enhance the experience of TfN. We are NOT necessarily going to pick the most experienced or the most trained cyclists only - variety is the spice of life, and we too want a rich and varied mix of riders of varying experience, interests and backgrounds, reflecting the fact that wide spectrum of people that are united by their love for cycling.
