Welcome, Anil! :-)

Profile Information

My current bike model / type:
Raleigh Ridge Disc
My favourite ride so far:
Mumbai-Goa-Mangalore-Dharmasthala-Bangalore-Andhra (NH17, NH48 and NH4); Mahalaxmi to Dahanu and back (the Randonneurs - Audax ride); Pune to Mumbai on NH4 (the old ghats road); Pondicherry to Chennai on the ECR; Mulund to Uttan (via Aarey, Malad, Marve, Manori, Esselworld); Offroading at Waagbeel; night rides across Mumbai; night rides to Panvel; climbing the Kharghar hill and the gravity ride downhill at 50+ km/hr (during the Chembur-Kharghar ride); the 'Batata Wada' ride (to Palaspa-phata)!; climbing the Yeoor hill and zipping downhill! The Tour de Aarey (with its "mild climb")! Mumbai to Nashik and back (with an unscheduled stopover at Nashik)! Mumbai to Pune (on NH4, thru the ghats - a great experience each time)! Pune to Gangapur Phata (via Ahmednagar and back) - the 404 km BRM (in 27 hours, with only 15 mins of sleep caught by the highway toll booth)! :-)
A bit about myself:
[Reachable on +91-9820 six 3 six 3 six 4 and]
Just call me BOSS - a "Bum On Saddle/Seat"
Or, to wax more eloquent:
"Heart on nature,
hands on the handle,
mind on the road,
I'm just a Bum On a Saddle!" :-)

Enjoying life - every moment of it - to the fullest! :-)

Age: 39 years; spent the last 29 of those on the saddle (all kinds - cycle, bike, camel and horse). My clients are quite used to me riding right across town for our meetings. :-)

Lone Rider; but happy to provide company to those who want it. :-)

A Corp Comm pro - After working for others since 1993, I now work for myself... in every sense of the term. :-)

Fav pastime: When not on the saddle, spending fun times with family, esp'ly my 8-year-old daughter (who's nuts about cycling too - wants to join me on my long solo jaunts!) and my wife (who likes cycling but prefers walking...) :-)

I enjoy music, I compose, sing, dance, write, act... but hey, why make a song-n-dance of it, eh!

Foodie... not gourmet, just a plain ol' hog! Paani-puri, anyone? (Thank God for cycling, else i prob'ly wouldnt fit thru my main door!) :-)

Keep smiling. Ride safe. Have fun. :)

Tour de Mumbai... Western suburbs... by moonlight...

We waited as people landed up from across the city... Oshiwara... Andheri... Santacruz... South Mumbai... Mulund... 4 people came from Mira Road... Old friends caught up... new friends were made... At 10.00pm,…

Let "Parking" dogs "lie"...

Last year, I cycled to a mall in the western suburbs ("name withheld on request"... ha ha!)... and the vigilant watchdog (read: security guy) would not let my cycle into the parking lot... and guess what? he wanted me to leave it locked on the busy road outside, and was not willing to take any responsibility for its safety... So I told him that I'd like to speak to his security chief on his walkie-talkie, but he said I'd have to go inside and talk to him... leaving my bike locked outside, of… Continue
