Overhauling of Atlas Concorde 10

The amazing downhill ride - Mar 14 2010

 

I still can’t believe I did what I did – cycle in Mahabaleshwar, of course that by itself is no big deal but riding down the picturesque ghats covering approximately about 40 km from an altitude of 4370 ft above sea level and the high point being a stretch of 11 km nonstop descend with the valley on your left and the hills to your right at an average of 40 - 45 km/Hr surely is.

It is strange how things fall into place and shape up to become memorable experience…

Buying Bike Accesories and Spares - A good Experiance (Discounts +Free Shipping ) @ http://www.lifemojo.com/

I just purchased couple of cycle accessories and Spares from from http://www.lifemojo.com/. (Decathlon / BTWin ) They give good discounts and also provide free shipping. It turned out to be good experience. As in metro cities the cost of time to go to shop + Fuel + trouble of parking is so much that if someone is delivering you goods at home with free shipping and with some discounts, it is great.

So apart from time spent at home, a few short consulting assignments (to keep the cash flows going), reading and the like I didn't do much.

Actually the distance is @ 88 kms but since my cell battery dried up
