I had a year plan of 2009 to ride Pune-Mumbai-Pune (did on Feb 28 & March 01), Pune-Bangalore and Pune-Delhi. Jaydeep (my companion on Pune-Goa ride) saw my Pune-Bangalore plan on cyclists.in and wrote me about his interest to join but he can’t as he is leaving for Germany in first week of September, 2009. He also wrote about his plan of Pune-Goa ride, scheduled for last week of April. As the trip date was just 2-3 days away and I was not prepared for it either… Continue

I just came back from my first ride on my brand new 3700..
All those parts hurt a lot.. aargh...my legs, my a*se But it was a great ride...
I rode in Vile Parle (I stay here) and went all the way to the Airport Terminal to try out if I can still climb steep roads like I did in Germany with my MTB there..
The AAI are renovating the New Trerminal (which looks like the Old Terminal now) 1-A and the floyover was fullwith bumper to bumper traffic. So I could not test… Continue

MTB Sikkim 2009 - 2nd Khangchendzonga Expedition - was set up with the same format as MTB Himachal, each day consisting of 2/3 competitive stages with freerides in between along the route.
About half the whole route was on tarmac, the rest on stony mountain tracks, and a couple of singletrack "hike n bike" sections.
The landscape was magnificent and the Buddhist culture, with ancient monasteries, stupas, prayer flags everywhere fluttering in the wind, made one feel one was in a… Continue

Good fun riding to Marine Drive yesterday...
Finally got some time off client projects and decided to go for a quick morning ride yesterday. Since Friday was Ram Navami, there was far less traffic on the roads. Weather was pretty decent too (till about 9am). I left at 6.15 am from Santacruz.
Since I'd already ridden to the central, western, eastern and northern suburbs, South Mumbai was the only way to go. I initially planned to cycle to Haji Ali and back. But once I… Continue

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

I started at 4.15 am on Saturday, Feb 28, 2009, from Pune. The Dehu-road traffic was frightful but the highway was still manageable. The climate was very pleasant with minimal traffic on NH4 till 6 am. Encountered pleasant expressions/gestures from joggers on the Lonavala-Khandala stretch. I enjoyed the Khandala-Khopoli ghat most, as it was total downhill of 10 KM.
I crossed Vashi at around 11 am and reached Kings Circle at 12:40 pm. I had my lunch and much needed break at kings… Continue
