I had an interesting morning today cycling around Old Delhi guided by Arkash of Delhi by Cycle tour. Seeing a city by cycle was a great incentive by itself and was fun. But I ended up with a case of the Paris Shock Syndrome because of the state of filth of the city, even the … Continue reading Delhi By Cycle
Went cycling into the gullies of Pune, crossed the Mula-mutha River to the Mundhwa Road, under a flyover, jumping across a railway track and into Amanora Park Town.
Last weekend, I participated in the BSA Hercules Duathlon organized by RFL. I did the 10 km running + 20 km cycling thing. I was the last-but-one guy to finish and I did take twice the amount of time as the first guy to finish. But I didn't care about that. I expected to finish … Continue reading Duathlon and Murakami
Tonight was Movie Night at Bums On The Saddle and the movie was ROAM. This is one of the movies that can get anyone excited about cycling, and in this case, mountain biking.

As usual, if I want to listen to a song again, I click the left button to repeat, if I don't like a song, I click the right button to skip to the … Continue reading The meaning of Touch

It was fun to see people of all ages, from families to large groups of teenagers to avid cyclists all here for the same reason. It reminded … Continue reading Pulau Ubin Island
Note: I no longer work with IonLab since Nov 12 of 2009. This incident happened about three weeks ago when the preparations for ion were in full swing, and Vikram and myself worked all day long to create the posters for ion as well as the website itself. At one point, we realized that we … Continue reading ion and the police
Partly inspired by my gang's craziness, and partly inspired by Shree, I bought a cycle a month ago, and I've been cycling to work on 2-3 days in a week ever since. Some observations : People who drive in Bangalore have no respect for cyclists. The assumption is that the only reason you're on a … Continue reading Cycling
