No, I won't cycle to Hyderabad the next time. What other option do I have for my roadtrips?
E-ricks anyone?

2 Engine Off Fridays and I am feeling good already!

In addition, I made 2 friends on the Metro and heard a few stories from the rickshaw wallas.

This thing is awesome. Lets reduce smoke.

I'd have bought a Reva a long time ago if it could reliably transport me between 175-200km each day. Unfortunately, e-vehicles have a limited range, and don't suit my purpose, i.e. a daily commute of 150km. So I shall continue to add to the GHGs in the foreseeable future.
