The Apple Story

Enough of Appy! Have some fresh Apples

You got it right! This has nothing to do with Steve, either Jobs or Wozniak. I hold them in high regard and love Apple but right now I’m referring to the edible variety of the fruit.

On Day 4 on the BSA Tour Of Nilgiris, the roads(Madikeri to Irupu) presented a rude shock to the riders.

On spotting Support Station 2 earlier than expected, Manish Bhatnagar was delighted and said – I like it. Under promise. Over deliver. But the wrists, neck, back – all hurt.

Most riders echoed the sentiment, and were mentally prepared to be swept.

But some were determined to ride the full distance. They sweated it out. While Alex Kurian and Vivek RR, who were in the lead pack, approached Support Station 4, they were accosted by an auto-driver.

At first I didn’t understand what business he had with us. He gestured but we didn’t stop – says Vivek.

The auto-driver followed the riders to the Support Station, where he offered them apples to eat. It was a great feeling for both the riders. They relished the apples and spurred on by this benevolent act, they rode forward.

  1. I am just wondering how the autodriver knew the great secret “Given the food, Vivek can eat anytime, any place :-)”
