To work we go each day
Lose part of self along the way
And return as automatons
A cog in global delivery mechanism
Feel the wind back on your face
Let sweat be your exhaust fume
Be the fuel, go green - break rules
Return back to your innocence
One feeling will change your stride
One passion will be my drive
One resolve will turn back the years
And give me back my joyrides
To you all!!

While returning to home from office, i made up my mind to start the next day morning and go as far as i can since i had not done any long drives more than 100 kms.
After returning home, i sent an SMS to Vikram about the plan, "If it is not raining, I am ready" this was the SMS reply from him. I called up Mohan about this, due to his busy… Continue

this may sound vague or stupid....but was wondering...if we could cycle as a group and the MUMBAI MARATHON, 2010...to promote cycling...like its done during the CMs....i understand that the event allows only running and walking...but there are people there to promote many causes...and a cleaner and greener mumbai is one...hey its just an idea which popped in mind...hoping it'll be possible...
