After immense co-ordination and calculations, 6 girls got up early morning on a Sunday and went cycling in South Bombay. Since I work in that part of the city, I was given the responsibility to figure out a shop that lent cycles on rent. Though I had cycled there earlier, I knew of one such shop, but I also knew that it would be open only in the evenings. Just Dial came to our rescue and I found out about this rare cycle shop.
We reached the shop at the designated time, only to find out that they didn't have cycles for women.. none.. And they were surprised to see girls that wanted to cycle..

Losing all hope we were about to return, when a friend of mine called and said that he knew of a shop that MAY rent cycles for girls. We reached "Happy Cycle shop" and grabbed 6 UNISEX cycles..

So we started our cycle tour at the Gateway of India

We cycled through Lion gate, Horniman circle and Asiatic Library

After this rigorous work out, we craved some good breakfast. What better choice than to head to an Iranian Cafe and to have Bun Maska and chai.

Rains, Bun Maska and Chai...and ice cream at Rustom's was the icing on the cake!
Cycling along the Marine Drive, a Cop asked us to cycle and stop posing for pictures (please it is important to click pictures when you are doing something this fun!)
And this is how we ended our Cycling session..
We are cycling again this Sunday in Bandra and want cycles, help us by spreading the word and join if you can.
