Lake Toba Discovery Ride

On the 18th of November 2016, a group of intrepid (and possibly unsuspecting) adventurers dropped down into Medan, Indonesia, in search of fun and glory. 

This is the beast that greeted us.

From then on it was a rollercoaster of emotions and, well, an actual rollercoaster.

All in all a memorable trip. Hope everyone had fun! 

And there will be many more to come! 

Stay tuned, and watch this space. In the meantime, happy cycling!
