Finally took the plunge and decided to do a really long ride (anything more than 40 K in my case)...left Dahisar at 0630 hrs on 31st and reached Jamrug (near Karjat - just below Bhimashankar & Peth) at 1500 hrs.
Route - Dahisar - Ghodbunder - Thane Bhiwandi BP - Kalyan - Murbad - Kashele - Jamrug
Total Distance - 126.43 KM
Riding Time - 6 hrs 30 mins
Good roads, very little traffic after Murbad.
Rear tire got punctured and had to leave my bike out… Continue

I found this new iPhone application called Trailguru
, and its attached website. Holds significant promise because it tracks both real time and stats. Haven't checked it out on a real bicycle ride yet, though.

I use a cool combination of an iPhone and an application called Firepin to map my rides. Firepin uses the iPhone's GPS to locate and sends the data to the Internet, allowing you to be mapped in near real time.
Drawback: uses lots of power on the iPhone, I have to charge every couple of hours. Also, I can't see the data real time; only after I stop. A properly calibrated cycle computer is both visible real time and more accurate (the iPhone GPS records every few minutes or so, and… Continue

In the book - The Alchemist, the main character Santiago travels from the the Egyptian Pyramids to the deserts and finally finds the treasure in his own backyard.
Its surprising how even fiction-books can sometimes have coincidences in real life. Our ride on Sunday 14th Dec'08 was a shining example of this. In search of an authentic off-road for riding our "TREKS", me, Jo, Amitav and others had gone to as far as even Shivpur in search of an off-road.
However thanks to Jo,… Continue

It is a sad day for Mumbai and indeed India as a whole that terror can be initiated so easily and swiftly. It's very disturbing to see innocent people being taken hostage at top hotels from last night. Mumbai still bleeds, people are still tense, many have not gone to office.
Police are telling people to stay home. Schools and colleges shut. In this climate, I find it astonishing that some members are STILL planning to go ahead with upcoming rides in Mumbai.… Continue

It's great to see so much of activity on the site. Members are posting photos, videos, discussions, blogs and event notifications. However not everyone is tagging these posts.
Tagging any post with keywords helps others search for data on the site easily and quickly rather than manually browsing through hundreds of postings. So please try and add tags to all your posts :) It'll improve the overall site experience.
Cheers! Hope everyone had a cracking Diwali!! :)

Now, next time you log in, you will see a chat application on the left column which shows all the members who are currently logged in and online right now. Send a quick message or a smiley... be spontaneous! This is also great for multiple members in a group to organise an online discussion for an upcoming ride. I hope everyone will enjoy using this feature. I've been testing this for some time now and… Continue
