Hi from Bangalore

Hi, I am from Bangalore. I have been riding in the second innings, for the past 9 years. I love to ride the roadbike, a 2008 Firefox roadpro 2200, on Bangalore roads. I have palmed off my Canondale F7 mountain bike to my daughter.

Happy to be here.

hi and welcome. Since the only Bangalore I know of is in India I have to ask about the roads, are they pretty good in the city?

Hi Folks,.

Thanks for the welcome, especially to jorglueke, cb400bill, obed7, RonH, making and SpeshulEd.

Even though it is an entry level bike, it has served me well.

Making, the roads in Bangalore India are decent, and tarmac is good enough to ride road bikes. The traffic is a bit chaotic, for clipless pedals. There must be a few 100,000 of cyclists in Bangalore, but only a few thousand recreational cyclists.
