Thomas Lim, editor of Meghalaya Times quoted “Cycling in Meghalaya is yet to catch up to rest of the country but the “First Northeast Cycl0Bhp Challenge” has proved its potential in the state.In their attempt, the participants have tried to defy the topography of Meghalaya while aptly classifying it as an adventure. It is a well known fact that cycling in hilly and mountainous terrains is extremely difficult. Cycles have always had their presence, but going for stunting takes cycling to a whole new level, bring them under the category of sports. With the massive participation in the event, it only goes to show the enthusiasm that youths hold for the sport. All they require is support, proper guidance and avenues. “
