Been thinking of some ideas/features on cycling forums / websites that I think are lacking. At some time the thought turned to Cyclists.in and from there to how the cycling culture in India still isn’t mature.
See, in my book, for a place to have a thriving cycling culture it should have had vicious debates on forums and in comments on these topics:
1. Are helmets good or bad for cycling / cyclists?
2. Shimano vs Campagnolo vs SRAM components.
3. Lycra clad speedsters vs. Fixie sporting hipsters vs. Regular pannier & mudguard sporting urban cyclists.
4. Aluminium vs Steel vs Carbon vs Titanium frames.
Since I don’t see any of these debates in place on cyclists.in, I doubt that the cycling culture has matured yet. Wonder how long will the culture take to develop to that level, if ever.
It is interesting how the No campaign has focussed the limelight on one much disliked personality to defeat the referendum. (Voting is still on but most agree there is no chance of referendum passing).
To be young again. To make those mistakes again. To fall in love again. To learn to walk again. To be cared for again. To be carefree again. Ahh… to live this life again, what will I not give. Death is too small a cost.
