I have done some hiking from 25km (15.6miles) to 50km (31miles) in one go or some cycling in one day 220km (137.5miles).[…]

Staying healthy is the most challenging thing for the most of the office people. Stress, long working hours, endless meetings, fast food and snacks this is what leads for being unhealthy.
