Mountain Biking in Himalayas

Well it’s not that simple and you can’t just take your bike and ride anywhere. However, it is not very difficult either. Here are the most important things that you should know before you start this sport.

What is Mountain Biking?

Mountain biking is the sport of riding bicycles off-road, often over rough terrain, using specially designed mountain bikes. So, it’s not really biking in the mountains, but on any trail which is not really paved or cemented.

What is a Mountain Bike?

A mountain bike looks like a regular bike, but is especially designed to combat rougher terrain with inclusion of suspension on the frame and fork, larger knobby tires, more durable heavy duty wheels, more powerful brakes, and lower gear ratios needed for steep grades with poor traction.

Mountain Bike:

How did Mountain Biking originate as a sport?

Mountain biking is yet to hit the mainstream sports, however it is gaining popularity among the masses at a great speed. The name ‘mountain bike’ was first used in mass media in 1966 as ‘mountain bicycle’ when a modified bike was used for freewheeling down mountain trails. This sport became popular in the 1970s in the Northern California (also the hub of many other innovations in the world).

However, the first mass-production of mountain bikes started only in 1981. Slowly in 1990s and 2000s, it started as an international activity with races being organized in various countries and international racing circuits.

Mountain Biking in India-

India boasts of having one of the most amazing mountainous terrains in the world. Which have been organizing races and events in the Himachal Pradesh since the last 10 years; the sport has now reached a scale where people from all corners of the country now come and participate in week long races.

Various groups have formed in bigger cities, like PedalYatri in Gurgaon, Cycling & More in Bangalore which organize frequent trips on various offbeat trails in and around the city. Pedalyatri now has over 1500 members and is growing rapidly with mainstream media also covering the group.

Safety Precautions and Risks involved-

Mountain biking in India is a high adrenaline sport and it could be risky if not done without safety precautions and proper training. A helmet is a must for any terrain. Also, carrying a bike repair tool kit is highly recommended, especially for longer distances. Accessories such as lights, bells, etc. and proper cycling clothes are also recommended for mountain biking.

Environmental benefits of cycling.

 

 

One of the major concerns nowadays is our environment and there is a lot of focus on the problems with the environment. There are many factors which contribute to the environmental problems we have today. One of the major environmental problems is the increasing pollution and cars are a major source of it. Especially in large cities people tend to commute to work every day by cars and it has a huge environmental impact. There is a way to help us all get out of this mess and make the environment much better to live and that is Bicycling to work and the rest of the places sometimes.

Cycling is environment friendly as the mode of transport is silent and doesn’t emit anything harmful that can affect the environment. Cycling can also reduce congestion and the journey also at times, particularly in urban areas. According to the researches it is found that nowadays people prefer to avoid stress and congestion, rather than getting physical exercise and saving money and this is one of the important factors as to why people take up cycling.  It has also been found that cycling has increased the safety factor up to 10%. It is believed that general attitudes of cycling are very positive nowadays and cycling is considered to be very healthy, an effective way to relieve stress and also a good family activity.

Cycling also conserves roadway and residential space, thereby providing opportunities for less cement and more plant life in urban areas. Using a bike to commute to and from work reduces the amount of pollution and can be far less stressful than sitting in traffic for an hour or more. Riding a bike to work and home is also a great way to get in a daily workout without having to bother about the gym every day. If not to work, people also prefer riding their bike to the nearby bus station or park or any nearby place they wish to visit. Riding a bike to work or in our daily routine instead of driving a car will have a lot of environmental benefits as well as it will keep you healthy too.

The Benefits of Family Cycling

While we’re all leading busy lives, it can be hard to fit in family time and our increasingly hectic lifestyles make finding ideas for active family fun all the more important. Active families benefit by spending quality time with one another, while instilling habits that can improve health and strengthen relationships. We all need some time to exercise to stay healthy as well as some quality time to spend with our family. So instead of trying to figure out the ways to handle both the things, why not merge them together?

Family cycling is one such thing that will help you to bond as well as keep everyone fit and healthy! Cycling is usually a lot more exciting than walking for children, as well as being a faster way to get to places. A family bike ride once in a week can be a great way to get outdoors and increase fitness levels for all ages.

Children simply love cycling as it’s fast and fun and it also gives them freedom and independence to get around. Even if the kids are young or you have elders in your family, all the times are always the perfect ones to get on to your bicycles and start cycling. Jump on the cycle with your kids and you could see the kind of health benefits gym members dream of:

  • Cycling raises your metabolic rate, helping you to keep the excess weight off.
  • Regular cyclists are as fit as an average person 10 years younger.

Holidays are a great opportunity to spend more time outside being active as a family, so one can probably choose a destination that gives the opportunity to do this when possible. Cycling holidays may inspire older children when we set some healthy competitions as a cycle race or relays.

Increasingly there are more and more safe cycling routes available with areas that are traffic-free for family-friendly cycling. Even if your children are too young to control a bike on their own, you can buy child seats or attachments that link their bike to yours so that you can all enjoy a session together. The final bonus in the family cycling is that it is a fun way to make your family bonds stronger and a fun way to shift the pounds by burning a lot many calories. And don’t stop at your immediate family as cycling can bind your generations. It can be enjoyed by people of all ages, so grandparents can get involved too. Cycling is a life skill that you are going to possess forever and you can cherish some beautiful memories life and long which would be all about family-fun-cycling !!!

Mumbai cops got LA Sovereign Fat Bike EXTREME TERRAIN for beach patrolling

A new strategy taken up by the Mumbai police to use it as a weapon to fight crime is all set to gear up and perform the best. The cops are now pedaling to more safer streets and keep the city beaches safe from chain snatchers and other criminals. In order to make the beaches  more secure, Mumbai Police, as a pilot project, has taken up LA Sovereign Fat Bike. Cops patrolling on these bicycles would soon be spotted at Marine drive, Gateway of India, Girgaum Chowpatty, Juhu Beach, Bandra bandstand, Worli sea face, Shivaji Park and Oshiwara.

Beaches of Mumbai are places of tourist attraction and are frequented by foreign nationals. “There are isolated places on beaches and due to the sand, policemen often have to walk across the beaches. Cases of chain snatching, theft and molestation have often occurred on the city beaches,” said a police officer.

To ensure patrolling on the city beaches, police chief Rakesh Maria has ordered for bicycles that could be used for beach patrolling. The tyres of the beach bicycles are broader so they do not skid in the sand and can easily chase suspects on beaches. “If results following the use of these bicycles are good, then in future the department would purchase more of them.

“We would be using 24 bicycles for patrolling on beaches,” said Mumbai police’ spokesperson and deputy commissioner of police Dhananjay Kulkarni. It has also been said that two bicycles will be paired together for the patrols – one constable will have a walkie talkie and the other a specially made collapsible baton.

From the current lot, most bicycles would be provided to Juhu police station as the stretch of Juhu beach is more as compared to other beaches. Four cycles would be used at Shivaji Park as the beach stretch there is minimum,” said an officer.

In addition to this the officers also added, while bicycles will be faster than when the constables are on foot, it will also keep them healthy and fit. They will also be more environment-friendly.
