30DayChallenge – What Is It & Why I Did It?

August 17, 2014 Leave a comment

When I started this #30DayChallenge I didn’t know whether I would be able to complete the challenge which I was about to attempt. What was this challenge all about? Well, without going too much into details let me briefly attempt to explain.

I’ve never been fond or let me say, I’ve never been a guy who’s fond of going to the gym and working out. To be frank I’ve never enjoyed it. So the options left to me were swimming and then other form of exercises like walking and cycling. Though I love swimming, the lack of good and affordable options to us Delhities ‘#MangoPeople’ who aren’t members of any elite social clubs are far and few. So the second best option left to me was cycling. I purchased my 1st cycle in 2008 and started cycling off & on. I wasn’t documenting it as I never cycled that regularly.

This went on for about 4 years  and during all this time I didn’t even cycle for more than 25-30% of this duration. Then in 2012 I purchased my 2nd cycle. A TREK Mountain Bike Model Gary Fisher Wahoo. The lure of a new bike made me very regular in cycling for the better part of 2012 and I cycled for a good 7430 Kms. Look at the monthly graph below.

Beautiful Sunrise & Lovely Morning Today. Back alleys of Delhi

August 9, 2014 Leave a comment

Normally I leave for cycling around 530am each day and by the time I’m back generally the Sun hasn’t risen enough for the picture to come out nice. However today I got a bit late in leaving and after completing my Morning Cycling Run, by the time I was coming back I witnessed this scene. This place is very near where I live and the scene/colors were too good to just let it go by.
In general my morning rides are non-stop rides of 15-20kms. Again I’m glad I stopped an clicked this scene.
I had just my phone with me, the Xiaomi MI3 and this is captured from this phone.
