    Story

    I am on the TOFTigers Bike4Tiger Challenge from the 25th November in
    Central India. I am challenging myself to ride 180 kms over 3 days
    between two well-known tiger reserves in Madhya Pradesh, on forest
    tracks and trails through tiger habitat and bordering village
    farmlands, to support TOFTigers Village Wildlife Guardians scheme.
    Sums raised will help protect these vital corridor and buffer
    landscapes from tiger poachers, illegal logging and the bushmeat
    trade.

    Please help ensure another trained pair of eyes and ears, with
    a smartphone and a camera trap, to help patrol their own villages,
    farmlands and vital forests. For further details see
    http://toftigers.org/TOFT/Sponsor-a-guardian

    I've had a missed response to this challenge and had questions like:
    - Will I get chased by tigers? hope not
    - Will I get a bad tummy? hope not
    - Will it be very hot and humid? hope not
    - Do I like spicy Indian food? uhh, no answer
    - Do I like being eaten my mosquitos? no
    - Have you got very padded pants ? Yes

    by the questions I have been asked I think you will agree my friends think I am completely out of my comfort zone. Well I will be!!

      Completed the challenge and to be honest riding 180kms across country doesn't sound hard but when its up hills and down on forest tracks that have been ravaged by monsoons was quite hard work. Luckily the scenery was just absolutely amazing and distracted us from the task at hand. Thank you for all your support and the money is going towards the forest guardians to be the eyes and ears of the forest to help agains the illegal poaching.
