An attractive title is a must, I know, but somehow, I am never able to think of one but ultimately, I got one "Me, My Cycle and Delhi"

No cost of my ride, go green, my legs are the fuel and my determination is the power!!. The roads where my car vroom, on same road on my cycle pedaling pedaling pedaling...

Looking at Delhi from a cyclist eye, where you are going slow on the cycle and see the complete view of the place.Meet my cycle(Firefox Road Runner Pro V).One of my fellow riders was Sudheesh, but he had to return in between.

No cost of fuel or transportation  in my trip.Just had breakfast and lunch to get energy.In between took few stops for water.Keeping oneself hydrated is the success for long cycle rides.

Highlight of ride:

  • No fuel cost, go green..
  • 9 hours of cycle ride to see Delhi
  • Unexplored/less known places: Delhi Earth Station,Malcha Mahal,Bhuli Bhatiyari mahal and amphitheater near bhuli bhatiyari ..
  • Green side of Delhi
  • Ride starts at 6:15 AM under Akshardham flyover and ends at 3:15 PM at the same place Akshardham

Made one new friend at Deer park.He is a photographer who clicked my pic using his camera.

Covered lot of places in my ride:

Rajghat Power Station>>Old Iron Bridge>>Shiv Misthan Bhandar & Restaurant>>Jama Masjid>>Connaught Place>>Jhandewalan Mandir>>Bhuli Bhatiyari Ka Mahal>>Bhagwan Mahavir Vanasthali Park>>Malcha Marg>>Delhi Earth Sation>>Delhi-Gurgaon Expressway>>Karnataka Bhavan>>Rose Garden>>Deer Park>>Akshardham 

Delhi is a lot greener and there are many places to roam around in Delhi for nature lovers.Best time to leave is early in the morning to explore nicely.There are still many more places to see around Delhi for nature lovers...

Rajghat Thermal Power Station has an installed capacity of 135 MW. The First unit was commissioned during 1989-90.News was to shut it down, so i got an interest to see it.The decision was taken to improve the air quality of Delhi. Also my interest in machinery, inclined me to stop and see the plant.

Its Sunday morning and how come a true cyclist can miss Raahgiri... It was full of fun.People were enjoying a lot at Raahgiri. It was just like a fair where people were happy enjoying. Really lively and lovely. RaahgiriDay is a weekly street event which provides citizens with the opportunity to reclaim their streets, connect with their community, celebrate their city and therefore reclaim their lives.

Time to get some blessings to complete my ride, so went to the hanuman mandir at Jhandewalan. At this point I was alone, Sudheesh left for home. Now my journey is alone.. Old temple and very famous.

Bhuli Bhatiyari ka Mahal is situated behind famous Hanuman Temple of Panchkuyian Road near Karol Bagh. This is an old hunting lodge of Tughlaq, now considered as a haunted place in Ridge. I was little scared but, its morning time so no fear and hanumaji temple was just behind.. So no problem at all.. Also the old, non functional amphitheater was nice to see..

Delhi wallas used to drive there to witness the landing of airplanes in the Indira Gandhi international airport whose runway is just across the highway. It is said that the planes come so close there that you could touch them with your arms. (Well, almost.) We cyclist call us the jumbo point, but got disappointed... No landing of planes taking place for last 8-10 days as per the local person at the police post.
