My experience at Dehi Duathalon

I wrote a detailed post about my experience with Delhi's Cyclothon on August 29. It was good to see the number of participants and the enthusiasm, but all of it wasn't enough to make up for the mismanagement and faulty planning. The entire post can be seen here:

where are Raleigh Bikes[authorised dealer] available in Bangalore????????????


The Raleigh Bikes are really stunning especially the Hybrids and other race bikes. I want to buy a Raleigh Road Bike but dont have any idea about the availability of Raleigh cycles in Bangalore or anywhere in India. I saw the website of Raleigh but it was a U.S website, there is no Indian website or information regarding the dealers. So could anyone please tell me where I can find Raleigh bikes in Bangalore????

5000 people, one cyclothon

Well, Salman Khan cudn't make it but 4999 other cyclists did. Plus me. But for the sheer strength of the number, there isn't much else to ride about! Even though it was an event to promote the upcoming Commonwealth Games, many could not manage to overlook the sordid state of part of the route that stretched near C.P. More than anything, more than the flashy jackets, the VIP lounge area, and the cameras, more than the D.J. host, the most striking thing was the line up of cops across the…

What Bike do YOU own?

What model bike do you own? Share what you like about it and what it lacks. How much you paid for it, and was it worth it?

I use a BSA Mach 1. It has been with me for around 15 years. I don’t even remember how much I paid for it! I heard that it costs sub 4k these days. I would highly recommend it.

Since it’s an Indian bike, I have never had issues with maintenance/repairs. Spares…

"Fomas Racer Cycle":- A personal opinion.

Extremely pleased with the purchase of a Rs 4800 "Fomas geared racer" . The cycles tyres V/V/'s are excellent, akin to 'Motorcycle tube v/v's",and its a month since purchase that i haven't replinished the "tyre air"! I previously owned a "Hero Hawk" ordinary racer which served me faithfully for over a decade, my tourist vehicle in Bangalore and Mumbai. The only defect with this cheap and strong cycle was its outdated "tyre design" which got punctured frequently,… Continue

Women - The “Indicator Species”

I got this read from the net... Interesting article.

Women are considered an “indicator species” for bike-friendly cities for several reasons. First, studies across disciplines as

disparate as criminology and child ­rearing have shown that women are more

averse to risk than men. In the cycling arena, that risk aversion translates

into increased demand for safe bike infrastructure as a prerequisite…

On Independence day (Sunday 15-8-2010) i did my own cause for a pollution free environment awareness in Mumbai by cycling from Prabhadevi To Bandra's mount Mary hill and back to "Rang Sharda" theatre to watch the Konkani play,"Koxxt Tarvotteanche(Trials of seafarers). Shockingly, i was denied "Cycle Parking" in the theatre premises by the watchman, although my bike was a brand new "Fomas Racer" and definitely not an eyesore to the sleek motorcycles and cars of the "Parking area". On inquiries… Continue
