Ever taken part in an individual Time Trial ? Known how much fun it can be ?
Imagine this multi-fold.
BBCh #7 is all about introducing the Team Time Trial to Bangalore, with the hope of encouraging team formation. This would help us take our local bike racing scene to the next level!
While you could definitely race all by yourself (boooooo! booring!) it would be fantastic if you could race with your team or form an adhoc team, give it a zany name and race together.
Don’t want to race but would love to pitch in and help organize this race and ensure it is top notch ? Please do sign up as a volunteer

Check out the compressed version of the entire race route. This was shot around 4pm on a busier day – truckers tend to shut eye earlier in the day!
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
DREAM BIKE: S-Works Epic HT & S-Work Roubaix
OTHER PASSIONS: Technology, Photography, Baking, Travel, and Reading
