On Saturday(6/4/2019) my "Fomas Gear Racer " finally totally disintegrated and had to dispose it as scrap by weight receiving a princely sum of Rs 170 for its 9 Kg Wt. I must have spent a total of Rs 15,000 + in purchase/ maintenance etc during the 8.5 years of daily usage of this cycle.
Purchased a "Kross Bolt Fixed wheel cycle" manufactured by "Hero Cycles" from "Ambika Cycle Store " near Shardaashram High School.

Next day on Sunday(7/4/2019) had the "Muharrat Ride" of my brand new "KROSS BOLT CYCLE" to "M.G.M.O" pool and back home to Prabhadevi , a daily cycling distance of 3 Kms. Have ridden 3 different cycles since 1999 when i became a regular annual member of "Mahatma Gandhi Swimming Pool" and in 2019 complete 20 years of a daily disciplined fitness schedule of "CYCLING + SWIMMING".

. At present i daily swim 2.5 Kms in the pool while in 1999 swimming 100 meters was a big achievement for me ! Hope i am setting a "FITNESS SCHEDULE" agenda to the younger generation as i myself have sportsmen of my and the elder generation as my role models.
