He also had great experience getting to witness new people, culture, traditions and exploring diverse terrains and weather conditions.

However, unfortunately after that it ride experience went slightly downhill and he had to suffer quite a bit in order to continue with his journey.

He said that a headwind had picked up suddenly in Goa, and though it was not as bad as in Europe, it had annoyed him quite a bit. The road through which he cycled was also very bad for about 500 meters, and in the same patch a screw on his bike’s pannier rack had come out to make the situation worse, explained Davies in his blog about riding through Goa. It is certainly an unbelievable feat for such a young cyclist.
