Dr Harsh conducting the quiz on Rest Day, Irupu

On Day 5(Rest Day) of the BSA Tour Of Nilgiris, amongst other activities, the one which received active participation was the Cycling Quiz conducted by Dr. Harsh Shah. Dr. Harsh has been cycling for over 6 years now and would love to participate in the next edition of the tour, as well.

The winner of the quiz, the vivacious Nischal Pai appeared surprised upon winning. However, the bigger surprise was, yours truly qualifying the prelims. A confession was made by Srikar, the runner-up, that he had copied from fellow participants. I also have a confession to make – I cheated too. I mean, come on, who didn’t? Even if it displeases the purist in you, it was all done in good spirit and riders had a gala time while the quiz was on.

Below are some sample questions. Try answering them –

  • Which religion’s places of worship were destroyed in Sultan Bathery?
  • What is the elevation of Sultan Bathery?

There were hardcore technical questions too, but I don’t remember them(forget the answers) The winner and runner-up got a sleeping bag and a backpack respectively.
