Indian Cyclists Network

My daily ride bigins at 6.50 after I help my son board school bus. As we wait for the bus we do warm up exercises with which I am ready for biking & my son for basket ball.

I pass in front of this sign board frequently when riding this part of town. But my philosophy is simple. It is God my creator should be more concerned about me than I being concerned about him. However I have my all respect to the Almighty and I am very greatful to him for the things that I have primarily my familiy & friends

Lovely cantonment roads

Remembering the Jawans everyday.

Its my usual routine I drop my Son at the school bus & follow him on the bike.May be when he reaches 7th standard, he can ride himself on his FF Target. For now he rides with me on holidays & weekends

By than the sun is out at The RWTC

And the joggers

In the absence of the Horses men do it.

PMC staff Works Hard (without any safety glows or mask) so that my Pune does 'nt stink

Pune's very own cycling tracks ( lucky me). They are there in good part of Pune.

And they are like tarmac

Garden for the Empress

Where Officers make Mess

Shinde Chhatri

Recall movie 'Hul Chal' (1 of my fav) and you will find with Amrish Puri's intense Scenes in the courtyard of this bunglow.

ZKs the restaurent( belongs to Zaheer Khan). I went twice only to leave midway due to slow service. I was also charged for undelivered drinks. Hope it has imprived now

My daily aquantance. He cycles from Hadapsar to Upper Indiranagar (dats abt 24Kms up & down) where he tends 'Shamiyanas'. His cycle is 20 years old and has been faithful to him. Probably if n when my daughter decides to marry may be then I can hire his services

KIRKEE WAR CEMETERY was created to receive Second World War graves from the western and central parts of India where their permanent maintenance could not be assured.

The KIRKEE MEMORIAL stands within the cemetery and commemorates more than 1,800 servicemen
who died in India during the First World War, who are buried in civil and cantonment cemeteries in India and Pakistan where their graves can no longer be properly

This total includes the names of 629 servicemen whose remains were brought from Bombay (Sewri) Cemetery for re-interment here in 1960

On the same memorial are commemorated almost 200 East and West African servicemen who died in non-operational zones in India in the Second World War, and whose graves either
cannot be located or are so situated that maintenance is not possible

The cemetery contains 1,668 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War.

Kirkee, also known as Khadki, is a Military Cantonment adjoining the large university town of Poona on the Plateau above Bombay

Lovely blog Vinoo.Nice pics too.
Reminded me of my school and college years at Pune when the cycle was an extension of your physical self. Hadapsar and back was very much a part of my weekly route to get to the Pune gliding center where a bunch of us learnt to fly for three years.Had no idea how far it was at that time.AM GLAD THAT YOU HAVE CYCLING LANES.HOPE ENOUGH CYCLISTS REGULARLY USE THEM AND CAN SERVE AS A MODEL FOR OTHER PLACES TO GET CYCLING LANES.WE ARE PUSHING FOR SUCH LANES IN BANDRA AND KHAR IN MUMBAI.
Look forward to more posts from you.
