This is a verbatim transcript of a thread in Bangalore bikers club.I’m just reproducing it here to try and encourage non-cycling visitors to take up cycling as a means of commute.
That’s great info. Can I share it on other fora?Its important since you have cycled for just 2 months and have felt the difference. Was it tough initially.One of the problems that I face when I tell people about our cycling experiences wrt to ease of commute , the refrain is that “You are used to it, since you cycle a lot”. Difficult for them to believe that it will make a big difference to them in a short while. Talking about the real experience of someone who has recently taken it up helps.

This is great!!BTW, I have been cycling to office daily for the past two months. It’s definitely faster than a bus (1.25 hours), bike (1 hour), car (1.25 hours); assuming peak traffic. I reach exactly in 40-45 minutes (irrespective of what the traffic is like) covering a distance of 15 KM one way.Every argument that I had against it has come to nought.1) Too far2) Not fit enough3) Too much pollution4) Will take too much timeI am now in the process of evangelizing this in my team and have already converted two other people. Hopefully more will follow 🙂Darshan
