Ignite Bangalore – Surviving a bicycle commute in Bangalore

Rohan Kini Uncategorized

Imagine you’re on stage. You have 5 minutes, 20 slides advancing every 15 seconds and people listening. What would you talk about?

We talk about bicycles :)

… and how bicycles will save the world.

A quick update from Suman, who did a wonderful job hosting Ignite Bangalore.

Overall the event was loads of fun. Folks apparently liked it and I met quite a few people who were actually enthused enough to give bicycle commute a shot. Fantastic !

The presentation was thought up by a bunch of Bikers – Pradeep, Ravi, Nikhil (and a bunch of others bikers who gave me some valuable feedback when I tried a dry run)
Thanks to all the bikers who came there to cheer us on.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT CYCLING
I love riding my bike. Whether it’s a simple commute, a high-intensity road race, a jaw-grinding brevet, fixie rides thru packed Indian city or a kick-ass technical single track – I love it all. Apart from riding bicycles, I love being all geeky and know everything there is to know about bicycles, technology, bike fit, and service.

I started BUMSONTHESADDLE to share this passion for cycling.

DISCIPLINE: Partial towards MOUNTAIN BIKING but love it all
CURRENT BIKE(S): Specialized Rockhopper, Specialized Tarmac, Pure Cycles Original
