Schwalbe Road Cruiser - Initial impressions

Just received a pair of new tires - 26 x 1.75" Schwalbe Road Cruisers from Wizbiker.com. With the ongoing discount the pair cost me Rs 1200, which is about the same as the Btwin slicks I had on earlier. Here are some initial impressions.

Coffeneuring 2015

I first found out about the Coffeeneuring challenge in Dec 2013, just as the 3rd edition of the challenge had ended. The challenge, in brief, is to ride (bicycle) to seven coffee-shops on seven weekends in October and November.

Tour of Kaas and Mahabaleshwar (Part 2)

(Continued from Part 1)

I woke up just before sunrise to find the others already awake, taking photos. The view was breathtaking - the rising sun on one side, the serene lake on the other.
