A recycled khataraaa, painted over so can't tell anymore what brand or make...oh wait, its a HERO - Not any more! I donated that and inherited a blue Hercules in pretty good shape except it makes my ass hurt :(
My favourite ride so far:
In Goa, some years ago around Baga, with my brother on brand new bikes belonging to the hotel we were staying at. We rode on small dusty paths with greenery on either side and discovered sleepy villas hidden by flowering trees, even stopped by a cute bridge over a tiny stream that had fish flashing in it, reflecting the bright sun - Damn, I wanna go back NOW...
A bit about myself:
I am a fledgling cyclist but I love bicycles and think that they should become the dominant mode of transport rather than the way things stand right now. Am terrified of traffic so ride only late at night or early morning around Bandra's Mehboob Studio and would love some company!
Also, my friend Hemant and I have started a charity initiative called The Bicycle Project where we collect old bikes, refurbish them and give the to poor village kids who usually walk many miles to school everyday. Check out the blog on and give us your old bikes when you decide to upgrade! Also it would be great if you spread the word :)
