The bikers Dr Sarika Mehta, Ar Yugma Desai, Durriya Tapia and Khyati Desai began their journey from Kathmandu on June 6, 2016. Throughout their journey they talked about issues like female foeticide, girl child education, gender inequality and welfare and supportive measures for women empowerment.
"We had to ride in various different terrains in all the countries which included terrible mountains of Bhutan, risky forest terrain of Nagaland, shaky bridges in Myanmar. We also had trouble at the borders while entering Myanmar, Thailand and Singapore because of changed policies and the government there. It was really exhausting for all of us, but we managed it all owing to our strong will power and the blessings of many from our country and abroad,"said Dr Sarika Mehta, Founder of Biking Queens and leader of the 10 Nation Riding Team.
