Cycle buying options now in PCMC - Pune.

The cyclists in Pimpri - Chinchwad (PCMC) areas of Pune have never had it so good. 



The infrastructure to ride was always there, there already are a few groups devoted to cycling, what was lacking so far was a few dependable cycle stores. Yes, there were a few for quite long, but they had a typical approach.



The situation is changing now and the competition is getting hotter. One can now visit "Track n Trail" in Chinchwad opp Jayashree talkies on Mumbai - Pune highway.…

Fantom Rider 27.5

I already own Cannonadale Q5 and had rode it once to my coaching institute in HInajwadi, but the overenthusiastic onlookers, playing with its gear system made me decide not to try it again, a few months ago. From that moment, I…

Fantom Rider 27.5

Hi,



the other day, I purchased Fantom Rider 27.5 from National Cycle, Chinchwad.



I already own Cannonadale Q5 and had rode it once to my coaching institute in HInajwadi, but the overenthusiastic onlookers, playing with its gear system made me decide not to try it again, a few months ago. From that moment, I was thinking about purchasing a good single speed cycle for the purpose and also for city commuting - when ever possible.



Well, when I entered the cycle shop… Continue

New Route & New Distance Record (for Self)

Hi friends,



today I tried a very different route which I had in mind for last

couple of weeks.





Nigdi to Tulapur Vadu to Koregaon Bhima on Nagar road to Nigdi.





I completed the route - the endomondo shows 86 kms, in four hours.

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

completely near Akurdi, it could record 86 km.s only. Here is the link

for details -…

Benefit of Cycling !!!!!!!!

After riding bicycle for almost 10 months on regular basis since August 2010, I have observed that though I have not lost much weight in the same period, the major advantage has been I have successfully managed to get rid of 'Headache" that would otherwise occur average twice a month. I do not remember suffering from headache in last ten months after having started cycling. No hangover also.

It's a great achievement mainly due to cycling, I believe strongly !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

At some stretches it was cross wind, making pedalling… Continue

New Cycling Route in PCMC area, Pune.

Hi friends,



just yesterday came to know how the Krushna Nagar to Nashik Highway

(NH50) Spine Road (in PCMC area near Bhosari) has been developed (My

mistake I did not try it earlier). But a nicely laid 6 laned road

stretching upto 7 kms going through Krushna Nagar, Sector 3 - 4 - 6 -

11 - 18 - 19 - 20. Not much traqffic in the morning, I found it a good

track for a leisure ride.



Higly recommended to try once. For that matter, many a cross lanes… Continue

Summer rides

Friends,

 

started feeling "heat" cycling back from office, even at 6. 30 in last few evenings.

 

From today taking kokum sarbat to office, to consume while returning. Good "refreshing" drink, one must say. Definitely useful for summer rides!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Help!!! Help!!!!!!!!!!!!

Hi Guys, I have mentioned earlier that I cycle to office making it 40 kms total to & fro.

It takes just one hour in the morning to reach office but the world's worst & most shameless n indisciplined vehicular traffic in Pune makes me consume more than 90 minutes to reach home in the evening.

Well, my problem is that in spite of servicing my cycle ( Hercules Torpedo Radeo MTB) I have found that since last 10 - 12 days, it is becoming extremely tiring to ride back home,…
