Heck of a ride through Thailand. Just a hair over 2,000 km long. http://www.isan.bike/2020/

Looks like she did it using flats too. Just goes to show there are no rules. Partly why I like following audax pages from around the world is there are people using stuff that would be marketed as 'entry level' in this country but absolutely crushing massive rides.

Divya from Audax India was trying to get an international shipping setup for these PBP jerseys. Unsure how far she got with it though. Could find out if you wanted me to as I have her number.

She succeeded as I got one sent from India.  It was my favourite among all the international PBP jerseys I saw.  It's very thin though so I haven't yet had the chance to ride with it on - I'll have to wait for the summer.

Flats?
Nice jersey though.  I may point my colleagues-from-India at it!

OK, aka platform pedals.  Like what I use.  I only managed about 100 miles in cycling shoes and then my feet killed me, so I stuck with normal shoes.
