The event was decently organized. Water was easily available. The aid stations also provided water. Its a diff matter that they had to provide water with a lil electral mixed. Food was available at the food court. The food packet provided after the race was also quite sufficient. They provided 4 bananas which is good food post ride.
The organization was bad at providing information related assistance though.

I did cycling for 25km and water was not available any where. In all the stalls the water was over in no time. Water was available only until Amateur run not for people who left later.

All aid stations said they ran out of water when asked for.

Food was available for a couple of Hundreds when people were in thousands. I went and stood in the Queue only to be told that food is over and only cool drinks are available. This was eight in the morning!!!!!

But never mind. We did enjoy the cycling, next time we would make our own arrangements than depending on organizers. My views are in comparison with other events like Sunfeast Marathon where the organization i felt was excellent.
