Fine Arts Society stretch

One of the biggest qualms of cycling now-a-days in Chembur is the dug up roads on the Fine Arts to Chembur Naka stretch of the Ghatkopar-Mahul Road. The work being undertaken is for the monorail from Chembur to Jacob's Circle. This is a very narrow but vital stretch with vehicles coming from the Ghatkopar taking that critical turn that takes you into Chembur or going straight headed for the Sion-Panvel Highway or going towards Ghatkopar.

The narrowing of the roads and the…

When Homi and Ashok were on the road

Rahul Chandawarkar, TNN, Aug 26, 2002, 10.10pm IST

Did you know that Homi Bhathena of Jazz Garden and Ashok Captain, wild life photographer, were ace cyclists once upon a time? Not just ace cyclists, but arguably, the best Indian cyclists in the 1980s. Over mugs of steaming coffee at Ashok’s home a few days ago, the former champions recounted their golden days. Says Homi, “I remember the two of us speeding down Baker’s Hill at b re a k -neck speed on our roadster… Continue

Where there is a wheel there is a way

Arun Janardhan , Saturday, October 10, 1998, The Indian Express

With a bus load of irate citizens in hot pursuit behind them, Bapoo Malcolm and two others pedalled for their life. Literally.

A sudden twist in fortunes had turned the rather tame National Championships in Calcutta in 1972 into a filmy chase, replete with fiery dialogues and life-threatening intentions.

When a local cyclist lead though most of the race, the crowd behaved just fine,…

Cyclothon brings back memories of Mumbai cycling's golden past

Pradeep Vijayakar, TNN, Feb 22, 2010


Sunday's BSA Hercules Cyclothon provoked memories of a golden age of Indian cycling when Indians not only aspired to become professionals, but became pros and competed in Italy and the US. An age when there were stage races from Pune to Vadodara via Mumbai, Bombay to Goa and the pinnacle, Mumbai to Delhi a 1400 km race over 10 days with nine days of racing, the biggest in Asia then.

One of the key…

Cleaning the cycle

It's after a gap of 3 months that I was taking a look at my bike. It was a bit dusty and had no air in the tyres but otherwise has been in good shape.

Pakistan takes its wrath on Indian cyclists

This is not a very healthy way to encourage cycling in either of the countries. An eye for an eye...

But I'm also surprised that Pakistan sees cycling as a sport prominent enough to make…

Taking charge of the cycle

Had given my brother charge of the cycle to see how he handled it and took care of it. Lessons in responsibility as he grew up :). He seems more than happy to not use the cycle after it looses air. I will now have to take care of it for him and ensure that he first enjoys cycling before giving him additional charge of its maintenance. We both use the same cycle, so that could be a sour point.

It might also turn out to be a great place for some brother bonding :).
