People ask me when I began cycling and they expect an answer like 3 years ago / 5 years ago, but my honest response is: I began at the age of 5 and never stopped! There was no gap! Despite a formal degree in IT followed by a successful career in the same industry, I was compelled to give it up to pursue my passion on 2 wheels. Cycles and motorcycles are and always will be my true calling! Beginning to cycle at the age of 5, getting my first motorcycle at the age of 16, racing the road and track cycling nationals at age 18, riding my motorcycle to Khardung La at age 21, and then getting engulfed in the rigmarole of life until it all came full circle and I was back where I began - riding a cycle in the hills of Coorg, teaching young enthusiastic school children how to catch air on a mountain bike! Such is life!!!There are few thrills paralleled to riding an MTB downhill. FAST. And there are fewer relaxing moments paralleled to touring on a cycle or motorcycle through ones countryside. Sharing such experiences with other like-minded individuals is the icing on the cake. My varied experience and interaction with riders, racers and travelers both local and international over multiple tours, events and disciplines gives me a broad perspective and understanding of the sport / activity, the needs of the participants, the lifestyle and the target audience.
