My Goa business follow-up visit & my friend doing a Banglore - Goa ride to join me. March 19-21, 2010

Life can't be better than this. Work smart (not hard) & Play hard. I seem to getting more opportunities. The purpose of the Goa visit was to review progress at my Goa Factory, review electronic development work which is handled by my Banglore cyclist friend & offcourse visit my aged in laws.

My friend Chintamani left Banglore afternoon 4.30 on March 17, 2010 and entered Goa through south border at 10pm on March 20, 2010.

Hi Vinoo, sorry for such a delayed reply. I don't find much time to cycle; besides, my current cycle is a drag -- a Hero Ranger Swing. Let me know if there are some worthwhile offers (second hand will do too) on some of the quality bikes you guys ride. I would prefer a Hybrid but am not averse to a good MTB either. Maybe a better bike will give me greater impetus to ride regularly. Thanks and all the best. Cornelius

Hey Vinoo,

had a look at one of your posts about Bike Packing in Plastic Bags. Could you give more details on those Boxes. And if you had 2 boxes per bike (wheels & frames) then how you were'nt charged any baggage. Was this on an International Trip or Domestic?

Thanks,
Kaushik
