Intresting Article.

From couple of months, I am too planning to buy a cycle. Atleast I can do some of the work in neighbourhood on cycle, instead of taking bike everytime. Health bhi wealth bhi

I just wanted to share with you guys about a person called Sauro Painini. A cyclist from Italy. The 65 year old young chap has cycled across the globe. He stayed at my place for a week last year and shared his wonderful experiences. Will see if he has a website too and post the same here.

I second that. I bought a cycle on Gandhi Jayanti. I cycle to office every day. Ofcourse, it's around 1.5 kms from home. But I come home for lunch too! Makes it around 10 kms of cycling a day, as I go up and down 3 times.
I can proudly say that I'm the only emp in my office (other than support staff/ watchmen etc), who commutes in a cycle.

@ MX6: Thats a very good initiative

But unfortunately, my office is at Hinjewadi & commuting there will be too far as well as not safe. You seem to be a lucky guy, really envy you.
