first 50+


did my first 50+km ride today, on the ECR. from home, past prarthana, tollgate, vgp, mgm, muttukkadu to fisherman’s cove. a bit of an ache in the thighs but otherwise feeling fine. 🙂 hopefully will make it to pondy on the diwali weekend to meet ambar, who is cycling down from bangalore

new ride

after looking around quite a bit and researching the various bikes’ pros and cons, finally took the plunge and bought the cannondale f9. this would be the bike that would take me across the high altitude passes of ladakh come next summer. the bike looks capable. hope i pass muster too… meanwhile, a few pics of the new ride (click on the images for a bigger size). and, tell me what you think… 🙂
