My favourite ride so far:
Every day to office .. Its really liberating!!
A bit about myself:
I started training for Mumbai half marathon last few weeks.
As I hate the idea of going inside a gym, I decided to use cycling to work as an alternate exercise.

I have been cycling to work for past week and it feels really great. It changes your perspective in life.
Like school days of yore, bell rings day is over and your life begins again.

Thankfully the weather has also helped.

Preparing for Mumbai Half Marathon 2010


The Race
Let the gauntlet be thrown
And the challenge be announced
Step over crowd, clear this stage
For those who dare to respond

Limitations and hurdles are many
Each one is fighting to gain ground
Yet there is an unwavering will to finish
Not to lose hope or be bowed down

No glory, no sight of victory
Just a chance to compete
Against your own fears and assumptions
And fastidiously held beliefs

You and the elements, you and space
You and the sweat on brow of your face
Every single step on the road
Takes you towards end of the race

Give me back my Joyrides

To work we go each day
Lose part of self along the way
And return as automatons
A cog in global delivery mechanism

Feel the wind back on your face
Let sweat be your exhaust fume
Be the fuel, go green - break rules
Return back to your innocence

One feeling will change your stride
One passion will be my drive
One resolve will turn back the years
And give me back my joyrides

To you all!!
