32, dreaming of becoming 17 again

I finally did something yesterday - something that I have been thinking about from quite sometime. I got a bicycle, a Rockrider 5.3

Here are some pics of me and my Rockrider, which made me poorer by Rs.24k (plus more for accessories). Till sometime back I was also one among the people who thought these imported bicycles are way too expensive and not worth it. But finally after test riding several varieties, I couldn't say no to this.

(I didn't dare to test ride the ones that are more expensive, and only feel sad later that I couldn't have it!)

So, finally after several years I got my own bicycle and I am very happy about this. I hope I will be cycling more and more in coming days. Here are some more pics.

Sweet Ride

One thing is black and white to me now - to stay healthy, I need to go back to healthy lifestyle

Good decision. I wish i too could ride a bicycle instead of car. Mangalore roads are not cycle friendly. The terrain is also not conducive.
