More about Nitin from the man himself
I love cycling !
I re-started cycling 4 years back have not been able to get off the bike once I got back on. As an integral part of the Calicut Pedalers Club, I’ve organised races, brevets and other cycling events. I was also a managing partner of a bike shop in Calicut, Kerala, and have quite a bit of retail management and sales experience.
Before cycling, I worked at Cadila Pharmaceuticals As a sales officer and have over 4 years of sales and distribution experience.
As a simple lovable person I like long rides, traveling and most importantly I love to eat! Football, swimming, music & running are my other passions.

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.
