Mumbai on Wheels !!
After taking previous 02 batches of Mumbai midnight cycling, this time we are going to explore beautiful coastal route of Mumbai. The Ride will start from Mumbai and end at Bandra Bandstand. Exploring this beautiful coastal route of Mumbai, is a kind and unique experience !! We will be completing overall 35kms ride with halts at particular point like Marine drive, Shivaji Park , Bandstand etc..
Mumbai as we know is among the fastest cities of India, but there is other face of Mumbai which you can see only at night…thats the “Mumbai nagariya” !!
Pilot Experience :
Completed cycle ride from Nariman point to Bandra with lots of memories with me. We started this ride from Starting point of Mumbai called Nariman Point. We means me and Neenad J ArulI know that, if it is unplanned, than must be morre fun. On midnight, we decided no time limit today. just to enjoy the ride with lots & lots photography,
Some interesting things we have noticed during the entire ride Such.
Safe City- You can chill or roam anywhere on the streets of Mumbai because of Mumbai police. They are there to guard you and scold you too, to protect you. we found police van almost on every halt .
Ghoda gadi wala :- 300 Rs for Chota ride and Rs.500 for Bada ride (kitane bhi log bithao lekin 5 se jyada nahi….)
Chai chai chai :- Cycle chai wala, one of the emerging business man on Marine drive Market and a new “Laaltenwala” also giving a fair competition to him. Specially for that “Laatenwala” it had a never ending business because no end for Wishes for people. I guess its a perfect study of consumer behaviour.
After spending some quality time on marine drive and Nariman point we further passed by Hajiali. Full of lights there, our The Photographer Neenad Wants to capture it and he captured it well.
Truck Wala :- It was paining, not legs but my bumps then also we are enjoying the ride. Next time I am going to take cycle with a pillow on seat.
We had taken halt near one truck standing on the road. What!!! he is cooking something with songs on mobile “aloo ki bhaji , roti ,rice” its tempting man and I was hungry too. yes, on hill road someone is cooking inside the truck “abhi khayenge phir so jayenge”
After a busy day and tight office scheduled we are relaxing in our Bed with blankets
some people starting there shifts. We are further riding towards Bandra and we found people. Some construction work is going on, its a US shift I guess. Its not that chilled but people are seating beside the camp fire. We ask them .They said we are doing piping work 15 Feet under and its chilled there and they are shivering its really a US shift only
We reached our last destination a Bandstand. Ride is over. just chill at Bandstand 1 hour rest play some soft music like lag ja gale , lucky ali …. Plastic Bottle wala :- He is the oldest player in these night business collecting the plastic bottles .You will found these guys in certain trance in his own world . Suddenly he appear from no where its 4.30 in the morning.
