100kms Up!

Crossed the 3 digit mark on the way to work today on the bike! Haven’t missed a single day of commute-on-the-bike since I started 6 days ago. Had a chain slip today – and it got caught between the front cog and the cover – and wouldn’t budge. An auto guy smilingly obliged when I asked for a screwdriver, and that was fixed in a jiffy.

Yesterday was great too –

Cut pasting from an email thread:


Yesterday got “mobbed” by 3 traffic cops at Sony World while I waited for traffic to pause 🙂

what is this – battery ? no, lights
geared ? yes, 24
Cost ? 15k [ ok i lied, tried to lessen shock, to no avail ]
15k ???? 1-5-0-0 ? No, 1-5-0-0-0
why? Sir you can easily go up Nandi Hills on this.
Alone ? No carrier/lover-geever along ? (smile) no sir, alone. Married, two kids, saar.
(Vigorous head-shake) ? Exercise, saar, and no pollution
Good good! (way clear) ok sir, have to go now….

🙂 I think I’ll meet all the people I’ve never met on my commute


In fact the commute’s been full of interesting episodes – for other people as well. Here’s a link to a thread where people are posting their road experiences.
