If you need a purpose to keep moving ahead in life – go get a cycle. Then, there will be 100 reasons to pedal ahead. Just this morning I realized that the reason for a ride can be as simple as going for a cup of Chai.
But, It was not an ordinary cup of tea. It was Hyderabad’s famous golden tea from a restaurant called ‘Blue Sea’ located in a corner of Secunderabad railway station road. Amidst lots of hustle-bustle, this ordinary-looking extra special place serves some great staff at a price as little as Rs.4.
Close to 25 riders got together with a call for chai at Kondapur, not from the chai wala but from city’s most passionate riders club TBA (The Bike Affair) at 6 in the morning. I’ve got my bike quite a few months back but was still holding on hesitating whether I can cope with a group ride or not. But, this call for chai was irresistible. As I settled on the saddle, and cruise through city’s zigzag road filled with traffic, this new experience turned 50 km merely a fun ride. By 9 am we all were done and dusted with this little mission.
This has set the base quite strong for future rides, and find ways, not the route but the reason to ride :). Many thanks for the TBA folks, and they need more such reasons to schedule weekends ride, if you have one, do suggest.
