Workshop check for my cycle

After, I worked on my own cycle on September 27, 2010, the evening bought rains from the retreating Monsoons. This was not good for the evening cycling plans. A short ride around my building compound showed that the cycle was not in as good a shape as I had expected by the looks of things. The front brake had become loose whilst the back brake had become tight and had started clinging to the back tyre causing it to not move some times.

This was not so bad that I could not drive the… Continue

The rains started early, though and I was able to use it only once since.

I moved the cycle out of monsoon storage in August and gave it a clean down but… Continue

The ride was through unpaved trails and singetracks and I added a bit of a drama with a nasty fall.

Sunday, September 26, 2010: Bandra - IIT Powai - Aarey Colony - Borivali National Park.

I'd been itching to get off the beaten path, and do something different from my daily routine, which had settled into a Bandra - Gateway - Bandra, or alternatively a Bandra centric ride: Pali Road - Carter Road - Pali Hill - Bandstand - Mount Marys. Finally today, Bharath and I decided to head out and do something different. I rode from Hill Road Bandra to Bharat who is a Professor of Mathematics from California, teaching at IIT Powai for a few months. From IIT Powai we were to take the Pipe… Continue

Mark Cavendish on his way to New Delhi for CWG 2010!

Check out the article in DNA -

Not sure whether he's doing the track events. It's more likely he'll do the road races. Still, it's a great opportunity for us to see the Manx Missile! :)
