I intend cycling Chennai-Lahore in Jan/Feb 2013. My hope is to travel through the remotest areas, staying if possible in homestays.I would be very grateful for any help with the following questions:
1 What is the condition generally of minor roads- is 75km per day, six days a week, a realistic plan?
2 Am I safe travelling alone?
3 Is it sensible to take a water purifying device?
4 How easy will accommodation and food be to find in the more remote areas?
Thank you for any help.
