More about Suraj by the man himself

I always liked cycles. The ‘like’ turned into a craze. Especially since I didn’t have a bike to ride when I was in my high school, St. Joseph’s Indian high school.

In order to get a ride I would use the school watchman’s bike or borrow a bike from my hostel mates.

I did manage to get my first MTB, a Hercules ACT 109, when I was in my degree and rode it to college and everywhere possible. I even wanted to ride till Coorg, but never did so.

At present I ride a Trek 1.1 but my dream bike is the Specialized Mclaren Venge.

About me: I enjoy cooking & watching cookery shows, Sports: Tennis is my next favorite after cycling. I still feel bad for Andy Murray when he cried at the Wimbledon final in 2012 :( Studies: Currently pursuing my CFA and I don’t see myself making a million buck any sooner; with the job and stock market crashing all the time.

Well that’s me – short and simple. I hope I bump into all you readers of this blog. I am very easily recognizable with a white patch on the back of my head.

Happy riding :)

I love riding my bike. Whether its a simple commute, a high intensity road roace, 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.
