A new ROAD, and very new RUNNER.

It's been more than 2 months that I've been hunting and narrowing down which bike to go for. Last I rode a cycle was like 9 years back, so kinda had lost touch in the types and all. I then narrowed down on Firefox Road Runner (21 sp.). The closest firefox shop was the Marine Lines one and to my (un)fortunate situation, they were out of stock with the said model. Unfortunate coz I didn't get what I wanted. Fortunate coz after the long wait finally when they had the stock, it had come with…

Cyclists not allowed here.......

I would like to know how many of you had experience of being denied entry to mall because you were riding a cycle. I recently had sour experience being denied entry into parking lot of RCity (Ghatkopar-Mumbai).(I had been there to pick a new laptop from CROMA store).

I am surprised by management's policy. While the security personnel refused a reason I am sure security of visitors cannot be a reason.


Wonder if RCity Management is listening to this!
