Travelling to Mumbai

Hi All -

I am visiting Mumbai this July/August.  I am missing the critical mass :(, but I would love to meet up with the cycling community and hopefully go on some rides!  Any leads on where to borrow a bike would be awesome.  I would even be up for some travelling somewhere to cycle.
