“When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.” Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.
Cycling is all about holistic fitness. It helps you de-stress while keeping the body fit. This low intensity workout tones the calves and thighs while keeping the heart healthy, blood pressure under control and the lungs conditioned. It might come as a surprise but residents in Gurgaon have taken up biking quite seriously.
There are various groups which have just one objective – to get bikers who want to ride, together. A few of them are – Spinlife, Gurgaon Fun Riders, Team T3, Pedalyatri and Cyclesutra. Membership to most of these clubs is free. Their idea is to get the bicycle out of the garage and explore.
Gurgaon’s nooks and crannies with like-minded companions. As Gagandeep Singh Bhalla, founder of Gurgaon Fun Riders, puts it, "We are not here to re-invent the wheel, we are keen and inquisitive about new roads and destinations that we have not travelled to or would like to ride to again.
