Cycling to Work or "Hobby Cycling" is almost impossible in "Downtown Mumbai Traffic".

Cycled to "Phoenix High Street" from my residence at Prabhadevi at around 1430 hrs on Tuesday(30-11-2010). I was on my way to 'PVR Phoenix" multiplex theatre to attend the 1605 show of "Secretariat", hence decided to leisurely ride the short distance, akin to "horse-riding". The traffic was less as it was non-peak hours of the normal traffic.Strolled around "Phoenix High Street" shopping arcade after booking advance tickets for the 1120 matinee show on Wednesday(1-12-2010) as it was… Continue

My maiden trip...

Having bought a Schwinn Sportera recently, I was all pumped up to go for a maiden longish ride...(longish..as per my standards though :-) )

So got up today morning @ 0630 hrs and pushed off in direction of Fountain Hotel, with the only anxiety of conquering the hill gradient near Golden Valley Resort...

With the cool wind across my face , I could whiz past milestone with my Heart monitor clocking 135 BPM on an average..

Here comes the…

Take your Cycling to the Next Level: So Now You Can Ride. What next?

In some of the previous blogs I wrote about the basics, how to build stamina, diet, and the like.



So now that you probably have a bike, you've started riding, and the bug has bitten you. What next? Since most of us are from the city, we've been riding in the city, perhaps around our locality and a little bit beyond. It's getting boring to go around and around the same circuit, be it Carter Road and Bandstand in Bandra, or be it Five Gardens in Matunga, or be it Shivaji Park. If we… Continue

A stranger was seated next to a little girl on the airplane when thestranger turned to her and said, "Let's talk. I've heard that flightsgo quicker if you strike up a conversation with your fellowpassenger."

The little girl, who had just opened her book, closed it slowly andsaid to the stranger, "What would you like to talk about?"

"Oh, I don't know", said the stranger. "How about nuclear power?"

"OK". she said. "That could be an interesting topic. But let me askyou a question…

MTB Himachal 2010 - another epic edition of India's toughest

Well, it lived up to its billing, the toughest MTB challenge in India, 

that was no hype, I can tell you

it was rough, tough, hard, just the way we like it, even though we had

somehow understood it would be shorter and a bit easier than previous

editions ... well, shorter yes, but perhaps the "easier" was my

imagination/wishful thinking because some of the new stages were

definitely steeper and rougher (in both directions, up and down) but it

was great to…
