Purchase of a "Cross Bolt" cycle and scrapping of my 8 year old "Fomas Gear Cycle"

                                                                                                                                                                            On Saturday(6/4/2019) my "Fomas Gear Racer " finally totally disintegrated and had to dispose it as scrap by weight receiving a princely sum of Rs 170 for its 9 Kg Wt. I must have spent a total of Rs 15,000 + in purchase/ maintenance etc during the 8.5 years of daily usage of this cycle.

Purchased a "Kross Bolt Fixed wheel cycle" manufactured by "Hero Cycles" from "Ambika Cycle Store " near Shardaashram High School.

Have ridden 3 different cycles since 1999 when i became a regular annual member of "Mahatma Gandhi Swimming Pool" and in 2019 complete 20 years of a daily disciplined fitness schedule of "CYCLING + SWIMMING".

                                                   .                                                                                                                  At present i daily swim 2.5 Kms in the pool while in 1999 swimming 100 meters was a big achievement for me ! Hope i am setting a "FITNESS SCHEDULE" agenda to the younger generation as i myself have sportsmen of my and the elder generation as my role models.
