Fellow Cyclists,

According to the article titled "Danger In The Air: Cycling biggest trigger of heart attack" on page 19 'Times Trends' of today's Times Of India, I have a few things to say:-

As its a proven fact, that, cycling is totally NON-POLLUTING, thereby 100% eco-friendly & a boon to the environment, why are not all governments around the globe promoting cycling & discouraging motorized vehicles in the first place? Are they under any kind of pressure from vehicle…

Anyone up for a bike tour in Namibia?

The team at Tour d'Afrique have dreamed up some pretty cool bike tours over the past 9 years - but this year, along with their 'epic' trans-continental tours, they're also going to be doing a few 'spotlight' tours.

 'Spotlight' tours, which focus on a particular section of a country and are much shorter than the epic tours, are being planned for Namibia and Turkey.


Spotlight on Namibia

Indian Adventure Bicycle Tour exceeds all expectations

By all accounts, the riders on the Indian Adventure Bicycle Tour from Agra to Kunyakumari are having an incredible time. Tour Leader, Shanny Hill, shared a bit of what the riders have been experiencing over the past few days.


"The route has far exceeded expectations. The logistics and planning to make it work have filled my days over the last several months and it’s very rewarding to see the smiling faces of riders coming into the hotels after another successful day on the…

Congratulations to Vinod Punmiya

Congratulations to Vinod Punmiya

Discerning fellow-cyclists-members v/s lurking-vendors-shops on

I got two friend invites today on this platform (

I recognised one as a cycle-shop-vendor from Vashi based on his member-name.

I have a small concern here....


On this platform, HOW does one distinguish cycle-shops-vendors v/s fellow-cyclists ?

Go lose some weight " to which an apt reply was shouted back " Madam you need to more than us ".
