Today in the news – some brave man challenges the Deccan queen, a train from Bbay to Pune, by cycling at the speed of the train and beat it to reach the target destination in some 2 and half hours.. a great , thrilling and enthused achievement ..and these were the excerpts that I saw , while flipping the channels on the TV ..
It reminded me my passion for cycling.. and long made promises to self to go on a ride daily was kept today after getting inspired by the news story… and out comes my cycle – “ the star bike” .. then lying in a sorry state to now made manageable to ride..
So while I drove down the under bridge which led the road to the race course .. it was indeed a joy ride..
When one picks up enough speed while biking down hill or down the slope .. then no matter the wind direction or how fast the gust of wind is blowing against u , u just fly.. and try to take the leg from the pedal the flying feeling continues.. For an instance when I put the leg on the pedal again and tried to pedal , I felt that the chain which connects the pedal and the wheels had gone out from its place.. cos the bike moved so freely as if the wheels were moving on their own.. simple pleasures from small small things ..
All in all a joy ride.. go check for yourself.. enjoy :)
