The Cyclothon Experience
It was early in the morning and we never really knew how this would work out, firstly, a 6 AM sound check sounds unreal, follow that up with a show that has to start at 7AM, a time when our fingers, vocal chords and our bodies are fighting with us to get back to bed!
But only when we reached there did we realize what hit us! about 6000 Bangaloreans landed up with their cycles in tow to go out and cycle anything from 5 KM to 60 KM! And thats when we thanked our stars and loved the option we had – to entertain them instead
The event got off to a prompt start with the serious race going first, and we were on for a brief while after that and pulled all the spectators who were on either side of the road watching the race right on to the road for a really early morning party!
After some glitches and a whole load of waiting which was due to the sheer mass of people present and many other factors, we got on stage again for a rocking remainder of the set and quickly bid farewell in time for the boys from Chennai to catch their flight back!
Kudos to the organizers and Mr. Ashok Kheny in particular for pulling something like this off! And also many thanks to Vishnu from VnP Sound who did a stellar job inspite of having to set up behind stage! Thanks also to the volunteers who made a HUGE difference to our experience at the Cyclothon and like Raghu says in his autograph, thanks for being there when we needed you guys!
In all, it was a fun experience and it might just be the start all of required to do something clean and green!
