It is a sad day for Mumbai and indeed India as a whole that terror can be initiated so easily and swiftly. It's very disturbing to see innocent people being taken hostage at top hotels from last night. Mumbai still bleeds, people are still tense, many have not gone to office.

It's great to see so much of activity on the site. Members are posting photos, videos, discussions, blogs and event notifications. However not everyone is tagging these posts.
Tagging any post with keywords helps others search for data on the site easily and quickly rather than manually browsing through hundreds of postings. So please try and add tags to all your posts :) It'll improve the overall site experience.
Cheers! Hope everyone had a cracking Diwali!! :)

We added another great feature to CYCLISTS.IN today. CHAT!
Now, next time you log in, you will see a chat application on the left column which shows all the members who are currently logged in and online right now. Send a quick message or a smiley... be spontaneous! This is also great for multiple members in a group to organise an online discussion for an upcoming ride.

Yesterday was the longest ride so far for me... 82kms in total. Started from Santacruz at 6.15am. Destination was Chena Lake in Thane District. The plan was to meet up with fellow riders from Thane. Quite a few of them had met up and were waiting for a long time.
Unfortunately no one showed up from the western suburbs. And since I took 2.5 hours to reach there, most of them returned home by then after waiting patiently for long! I did get to meet Joe and the thane… Continue
