A New Journey Begins

So finally the cold winter wave seems to be retreating and more bright sunny days are replacing the gloomy, cold,  foggy winter days here in north India! As the beautiful spring sets in, everything seems to be undergoing a change. There is a bit more colour in the surroundings, the flowers are blooming,  the grass is greener.. its like an injection of life has been given to a patient on his death bed.

This beautiful change can be thought provoking and thus left me thinking on how to enjoy this spring to the fullest! Well, I had a moment of enlightenment where the Gods whispered in my ears and told me that the best possible way was to integrate wellness with fitness by getting a sports bicycle. This would help me breathe in the freshness of the outdoors , pay attention to the little details of the natural beauty that surrounds us while sweating it out.. After all God is in the details!

So off I went to get myself that perfect bicycle that would help me achieve my new resolution of fitness and nature appreciation.

And Voila, I am the proud owner of a Hercules Atom 18 Speed Bicycle.



It is a lean and stylish bike. It has a low stylish frame, and the seat contains high-quality polyurethane sponge that offers a comfortable seating. The seat is attached to a top-notch spring that prevents you from suffering a back-ache in case you are riding on rough roads. Having a low frame, mounting and unmounting the bike is easy. The cycle comes with 18 speed complete Shimano gear system that allows you to change the speed of your bike as per your preference. The tyres are 26-inches wide in size and are made from supreme quality rubber. These tyres are built for speed and offer high-level endurance against sharp objects on the road. So you do not have to worry about your tyres getting punctured during an intense ride. The overall frame of the bike is made of stainless steel that enhances its durability. It also comes with a stand for you to park the bike once you are done with your session.

I took this baby out for a ride today and it was awesomeness! Good suspension, brakes and comfort!
I did some 10+ kilometers in about an hour! So, wish me best guys as I embark on my new fitness and wellness journey ;)

Wow, nice buy! Cycling is a great exercise, but it's important not to over exert and injure your back and butt too! Which is why you invest in a good bike I guess! :)

I haven't biked in years. When I tried to bike again recently, I found I couldn't do it anymore. I want to get into this activity again.

That bike looks so nice! 10k+ and looking good! Is it for beginners or pros already?

Marie said...

This is why I want a bicycle so I can go around anytime I want and just sightsee. :)

New baby! Enjoy it. I want to go outdoors too but I don't want to tan my skin. I have been working so hard to have a fairer skin. Haha!

Your new journey with the new bike will surely keep you healthy.

Congrats on the new bike! I love biking too and it's a great form of exercise. I'm sure very soon you'll be joining bike races ;)

Louise Banta said...

Wow! Your bike looks cool! I miss biking! I've always had a bike but when I went for college, I gave away mine.

Biking isn't just a sport or a trend (which is a trend thing here in the Philippines last year). To me, it's an activity wherein I get to experience nature in my own speed and in my own way.

Just always be careful! :)
