I am a cyclist from Mumbai, India – riding my bike about 6 days a week, clocking over 12-15000 kms a year. On average, I ride approximately for over 2 hours a day, clocking over 50 kms daily and try to do a few short and long bike tours every year. I also have done many forms of cycling events like Brevets of 200-600 kms, amateur races and more.

My tryst with cycling came after some incredible health challenges till about 2013. Earlier, I had to undergo a massive heart bypass surgery, a brain tumor surgery & a knee replacement.  I took to cycling daily since 2014 to reclaim and resurrect my life, while going about my professional life in a routine fashion.

Since the past few years, I really took a fancy to Bike touring and have done some fantastic and memorable tours in India and other countries. Some of these bike tours to the Indian Himalayas and Ladakh regions specially have been extremely challenging and even educational in a way.

With this website and blogs, I wanted to document by bike tours to help other cyclists discover this fantastic way to roam the world and a new way of life.
