A bit about myself:
I'm an urban cyclist. I like cycling around in cities more than open country. I've cycled extensively around in many cities in the world, but most often in Mumbai, New York and San Francisco.

Of late I've been doing these long (75+km cycle rides) around the city of Mumbai, trying a different route each time.

Panvel and its vada pao

I decided that Sunday would be a good time to go to Panvel and look for those famous vada pao vendors. I set off at about 7am, and finally came back to Bandra at 8pm or so. I went through Chembur to Panvel, then to the Goa highway and finally towards Uran to Palm Beach road and finally through Vashi back to Bandra.

A map of my route is here. This is not exactly what I followed - i lost my way in and around Panvel and Uran a few… Continue

More Mapping Glory

I found this new iPhone application called Trailguru, and its attached website. Holds significant promise because it tracks both real time and stats. Haven't checked it out on a real bicycle ride yet, though.

My bicycle rides

I use a cool combination of an iPhone and an application called Firepin to map my rides. Firepin uses the iPhone's GPS to locate and sends the data to the Internet, allowing you to be mapped in near real time.

Drawback: uses lots of power on the iPhone, I have to charge every couple of hours. Also, I can't see the data real time; only after I stop. A properly calibrated cycle computer is both visible real time and more accurate (the iPhone GPS records every few minutes or so, and… Continue

I think if we do the ride without any distractions/detours, we should be able to do Pune to Oshiwara in 10 hours or so... at a peaceful pace... :)

Pune to Mumbai is definitely more do-able... I started quite late on Sunday morning, and had lunch at Lonavla... And I was careful not to exert myself. So I think we can easily cross the ghats by early afternoon even if start by around 9am...

52X14 with 700c wheels, I presume? That is huge for me. I have 42X 14 with 26" wheels. Tiny in comparison.

Lets see when the next group ride happens. If its on the road, I guess you can join in. We also go on some off roading once in a while. Which is why I have two sets of wheels for Thor (the Thunder).

I just love riding fast. Till the 90's I used to ride daily (lived in Calcutta then) and though I did not have a speedo or odo, I could tell I was going pretty fast.

It is quite a feeling to find your limit beyond which you either start panting or your legs start burning. I get quite a feeling of bliss to be going on and on without varying my cadence on the top ratio (my big chain ring is 42 :D ).

This Sunday, I did something somewhat like that. I still haven't got the legs to get to that state of zen, but I tried. I did Charkop to Bandra to Charkop which is 53 km in just under 2 hours of riding time. Reclamation is so beautiful early in the morning, that I had to stop there for 10 minutes.

Of course, I also enjoy riding in a group, where its all fun. You stop at the drop of a hat. You don't bother about your pedalling and tech stuff. You just enjoy the ride and being with friends.

I shall make sure my next phone has GPS, and then I shall venture into lanes of Bandra, and into town. I only know the main streets and I have only seen them from my car.
