Dear bike lovers, have you had a nasty crash or a fall yet? My question is, how do you mentally recover from it? Earlier, when I did off-roading on a particularly treacherous rocky terrain, I could…Continue

Well the confusion is whether or not to put a tyre liner. Is it really effective against frequent punctures and tube bursts? Is it good for off roading? How much does it cost? I was told around 800…Continue

Well, Salman Khan cudn't make it but 4999 other cyclists did. Plus me. But for the sheer strength of the number, there isn't much else to ride about! Even though it was an event to promote the upcoming Commonwealth Games, many could not manage to overlook the sordid state of part of the route that stretched near C.P. More than anything, more than the flashy jackets, the VIP lounge area, and the cameras, more than the D.J. host, the most striking thing was the line up of cops across the…Continue

Such are the things you notice when riding on a bike and not zipping past India Gate in your air-conditioned car. So, while the 6.30 a.m. motorists rushed for an early day at work, I pedalled along the lake on the dust-laden stretch you cannot call a track, near Rajpath, India Gate. It is the popular boating lake, filled with tourists on weekends, and indifferently brushed aside by urban population as another eye sore with its dirty, marshy water. But that is exactly what is so lovely about…Continue
