The planning begins.. with a list of potential sponors... maybe a map would be a good idea...

Starting from: Shillong, Meghalaya. In the far north east of India lies a splendid hill station in a state known as the Scotland of the East for its mountainous and impressive vistas. We'll race through mountain forests on a plateau to depart from the capital of Meghalaya, which means the 'Abode of Clouds'. Oh, and it has the world's wettest golf course... so maybe time for a quick round.

Ending in: Jaisalmer, Rajasthan. By the time we arrive the Meghalayan hills will be but a distant memory after two weeks of three-wheeled adventuring from the very top drawer. A ludricously picturesque setting with forts that sprout out of the desert and finely sculptured Jain temples, it stands on a ridge of sandstone and is aptly nicknamed 'The Golden City'. Where better to congratulate one another over cucumber sandwiches and bratwurst than the very heart of the Rajasthan desert.
