Support cyclists.in with a nominal donation of Rs.500

Hi,

After announcing a week ago that cyclists.in is shutting down, I have received a massive number of emails/calls/texts asking to open up voluntary donations so members can help support the site and allow it to not just survive but grow to the next level.

It's been such a overwhelming and positive feeling to read all your mails. Thanks so much. So I've created an online donation link using which you can instantly pay us a nominal fee of Rs.500. Cyclists.in…

Not sure whether he's doing the track events. It's more likely he'll do the road races. Still, it's a great opportunity for us to see the Manx Missile! :)

Friday morning ride to Marine Drive was awesome!

Good fun riding to Marine Drive yesterday...



Finally got some time off client projects and decided to go for a quick morning ride yesterday. Since Friday was Ram Navami, there was far less traffic on the roads. Weather was pretty decent too (till about 9am). I left at 6.15 am from Santacruz.



Since I'd already ridden to the central, western, eastern and northern suburbs, South Mumbai was the only way to go. I initially planned to cycle to Haji Ali and back. But once I… Continue
