What did you think of your group leader?
Flawless. Suresh made every effort in referents to our wants an needs. We had amazing food, which he made extra effort for (his cooking demonstration and the street food was a highlight), he excelled in his skills as a communicator and always tried to make us feel comfortable, both on and off the bike. He additionally made little extra efforts to make our trip that bit more special; he had us made personalised templated cards with our photo on, as a souvenir for the trip. He also made us a cake as a reward for our challenging hill ride, with our names on. On our penultimate day I asked if there was anywhere I could get a map because I wanted to note down the route we had taken, and on our last day he gave us all this very map with our route drawn on. What was really refreshing was his clear passion for both his job and country, and I'll never forget it. He would make the effort to explain everything to us whenever we had doubts. He was very kind, generous and friendly.
