‘Khan & Kumar’ and ‘Ammi Media’ present GOING SOLO – a story of going beyond boundaries

About This Project

‘Khan & Kumar’ and ‘Ammi Media’ present GOING SOLO – a documentary based on two Indian women long-distance cyclists. The film is directed by Ameya Gore and produced by tech-entrepreneur Sharib Khan and actor Vikas Kumar.

Gareema Shankar (44) and Renu Singhi (58) joined the league of cyclists much after their marriage and broke many societal cycles in order to hold the bars of their bicycles. As they take the unconventional path and defy conforming to traditional gender roles, the documentary throws light upon the struggles they have faced in order to pursue the field of their passion shunning down obstacles that have come their way in a conservative society.

‘Going Solo’ explores the inner & outer journeys of these two women, following them before, during and after one of the world’s most prestigious endurance cycling events – London-Edinburgh-London (LEL), where Renu, a grandmother, became the First Indian Woman in LEL history to complete the 1,540 kms challenge within the official time limit of 125 hrs.
