completed one year of commuting by cycle in Mumbai

I am very happy to post this message:  I completed one year of commuting to office in Mumbai.  I cycle regularly from TIFR Colaba to  Homi Bhabha Centre for Science Education near Anushakti Nagar Bus depot.  The round trip is about 52km.  On an average I take about 1hr 15min for each trip.  My best timing so far was 1hr 5min.   I did this in all seasons. 

I ride Trek 7100 (hybrid).  So far I had two punctures on the rear wheel.  Considering that I covered so many miles, this I think is very good.  The cycle gave no problems at all.  Only thing that I replaced so far are the break rubbers.  

Another thing I must mention, is that after I started cycling, inspiration from Shekhar and VK, five more colleagues from my office have purchased cycles.  

Hope more people who use cars and motor cycles in the city for commuting will join us.

By taking an average of 6 one way trips a week  we get 312 one way trips.  Minus four weeks to  take care of days I am out of city.   Thus making the total cycling in one year to ( 288 * 26 km =) 7488km.

@Mandar Each trip is about 26km.  

@Makarand, @Raj Kamal,  I will post my experiences of riding in the rainy season as a separate post, so that others can also share their views.

Thats really cool Nagarjuna, I have been riding to work too (from Goregaon to Andheri) for about 2 months now. I would like to know what you did during the rainy season, I need to know as the monsoons are round the corner.
