Rekindling Fitness with Cycling: The Beginning

I was an athlete and a fitness freak during my college days but kept away from regularly working out in the latter years due to professional and personal commitments. However, I restarted my fitness journey with cycling in September 2017.

Cycling to Friendships

Until now, I have successfully completed 3 BRM (long-distance cycling events) events, finishing two 100 kms and one 200 kms journey. I have achieved this feat with my community of fellow riders, who have made the journey an even more fun and memorable experience. Together, we have biked between Vashi & Lonavala, experiencing testing weather, scenic landscapes, and rocky terrains.

Continuing the Journey to More Memories

A standout memory from the journeys was when we navigated the challenging Bhor ghat, followed by a rewarding feast of idli and vada at Kamat restaurant Kandala. Cycling brings a blend of adventure and fitness, instilling me with confidence, freedom, and a spirit of exploration. Want to hear more about my cycling expeditions? Reach out to me on Teams or by email to know more.
