"Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite"--Liberty, Equality, Fraternity..... BY BICYCLE!!

"Liberte, Egalite, Fraternite"--Liberty, Equality, Fraternity

the slogan of the french revolution took on new meaning for rohit and pankaj and our friend mihir ( all between 11 and 14) in auroville!! significantly, also having french connection, as it was founded by a french woman!!

the road above my street pt 13

In the morning mist (there is none, one has to force the hallucination

upon the brain), and a sky neither white or blue, the green DTCs blind

the sleepy eye and shake the limbs to move, and there.

My last attempt at Khirki Masjid had turned out to be a faux pas, but

these time falter we did not, and circling across the steel net

boundary which presumably is the beginning and the end of ASI's

maintenance plan (apart from the very pinkly restored… Continue

The new phenomenon: CYCLISTS

Ever since I have joined, there have been some strange experiences.

On one of my trips back from bandra on a sunday morning, a bunch of youngsters in a car rolled down the glass and called out from the car" hey, r u on cyclists?"..there was an exchange of thumbs at high speed and it gave me a feeling of belonging, a belonging to our community , our group"

Today morning while going to Aksa and Eranglar beach all by myself ( football fever has kept my friend… Continue

pankaj's second century (100KM) ride.....

you know it's monsoon when you leave for a century ride at 12 noon! and if you didn't know it yet you can be sure of it when you get caught in a torrential downpour!!
pankaj (my 12 yr old son) and i spent the better part of the morning fixing our new mud guards to the bikes and were ready to leave only at 12pm. until last week it would have been impossible to even conceive of such a late departure but with a wonderful cloud cover and grey skies to protect us from the sun we ventured out at…

the road above my street pt 12

Me had been acting real lazy this past week (for a semi quantitative

scale, I let my alarm snooze from 6 - 7:30 am, where every two snoozes

are separated by an interval of two hundred and forty seconds), so

Saturday had to be the day for a fresh, really really fresh beginning

(parentheses candidness 1: I had an early morning transfer).

Mehrauli we'll cover in detail some other day, so for now, we rolled in

towards Malviya Nagar, in search of Khirki Mosque,… Continue

Lake and a purple flower

Such are the things you notice when riding on a bike and not zipping past India Gate in your air-conditioned car. So, while the 6.30 a.m. motorists rushed for an early day at work, I pedalled along the lake on the dust-laden stretch you cannot call a track, near Rajpath, India Gate. It is the popular boating lake, filled with tourists on weekends, and indifferently brushed aside by urban population as another eye sore with its dirty, marshy water. But that is exactly what is so lovely about…

Cycling in the rain

Lets talk about 'how to take precautionary measures in the rain'.

Wet weather makes roads slippery, so you must ride your bike differently: A fall from the bike can leave a few bruises or even a fracture and put you off your bike from a day to a week or two.

So we will talk on four sub topics relating to cycling in the rains.

1) Braking.

2) Cornering.

3) Puddles.

4) Visibility.

Kudos To Shammi Sethi For Holding Thirty Consecutive Cycle Rides At Bandra-Carter Road !

Shammi, kudos to you for holding thirty consecutive rides in Bandra from 9:30 to 10:30 PM--Carter Road to Bandstand back to Carter Road two laps each and occasionally up 'Kane Road' a steep climb from Bandstand.

Recently he has organized some big rides too, which has received some good newspaper coverage and has surely created a big impact on the general public.

I have been riding most days too with this group and have thoroughly enjoyed…
