Recently I crossed my long pending cycling distance target: Exceeding 50 kilometres in a single ride. It has been lingering on since quite some time and I wanted to tick it off and move on to better things and longer distances. To most people around me I’ve done something impossible, if not something outright lunatic. But for a rare few cycling friends, I’ve started some ‘serious’ cycling. Anyway I’m happy having done that.
Each day on the road is a different experience. You see smiling strangers, frowning faces, some simple people struggling to get going with life: A truck driver who wants to know how bicycle gears work , a tea stall owner who keeps stray animals as pets, a differently-abled man who saves street vendors from police extortion and the wonderful black buck that just refrained from charging at me – each day on the road is a different day with a different story.
Do you have road stories? Please share.
