GEARED FOR A GREAT RIDE
The sport of cycling has taken off like Lance Armstrong on steroids. Be it as a recreational activity or an amateur sport, the last five years has seen an exponential growth in all kinds of cycles, but especially kids’ bicycles in India, indicating the surge in its popularity. The obsession with fitness and a need to be a part of the new cult that is active and adventurous has led to more and more people taking up cycling. What we are witnessing is the birth of a new culture, a culture that promotes sports and fitness as a way of life. And this augurs well for a country that strives to better its medal tally in the Olympics or to make a mark in international sporting events. This could be the beginning of something big. So be it road cycling or off-roading, it has evolved from being a kids’ only activity to one that has roped in enthusiasts across ages. In fact, many holiday tour operators even organise special tours for seniors above the age of fifty now a days. Cycle designs, too, have evolved over time. While the humble milk man’s cycle is still around to remind us of its very humble roots, today’s cycles are built to withstand the obstacles of multiple and challenging terrains and there are specific cycles for each type of activity.

There are different types of gear systems like the standard double, which is usually preferred for racing; the triple chain-ring version is great for riding in hilly regions or for touring; compact is the most popular version as it is cost effective and is good for climbs.
