Breath Taking Tamhini Ride

Did a cycling trip from Khopoli - Pali - Tamhini - near Sahara city - INS Shivaji - Lonavala - Khopoli on 13-14th Aug. This trip was perhaps the best we hv done riding a byc! Myself, Lalitesh & Prasad.
We got good taste of rains, hills, ample waterfalls, ghats climb, rough to best
roads, the downhills, the most remote places, wilderness as well as
the stay during the night!
Worth doing repeat some time later!

… to keep the skirt ON!

Mumbai Shimano spares: HELP!!!

Peddling the sweetheart!

With the arrival of commercial safety bicycles in the 1880s, the aristocratic society of the Continent responded great.  One group that really made daily news was the lovers. Young men and women deep in love wanted a space for flirtation. Since cycling was accepted as a social form of recreation, it was the easiest thing to ride away with boyfriend from the watchful eye of…

It was the military that first started to experiment cycles that could be folded  and carried on infantryman’s back. The main advantage of this…

Salman: Everybody can afford a cycle

This kind of thing, you can expect Salman Khan to do. You remember, don't you, how to promote his film Veer last month he rode a stallion in an exhibition race at Mahalaxmi, coaxing the prize horse to nose across the finish line before the competition that included several professional jockeys?

the fashionable craze ....

Year was between 1878 ... 1890. 

The bicycle was as pampered as the horse it partly displaced and was, in many ways, treated like a horse. One fad was to paint it in the family colors and protect it with a similarly painted cover a night. Then it was brought into the grand entrance lobby. A lackey would bring it round to the front door to be mounted by the master.…
