    Recommended Items for the Monsoon Mountain Biking Expedition

    1. Helmets: Would be provided
    2. Short Finger Cycling Gloves – These are essential for grip, hand padding and fall protection. Also after cycling you can come back and use them for gym as well, so would be a small nice investment
    3. Glucon D – This will be a sou…rce of instant energy.
    4. Light Wind cheater/water proof jacket: In monsoon mountain biking expect rains anytime so be prepared.
    5. Knee Caps: We had these for some of our expeditions but these are not very comfortable for long rides and may restrict blood circulation. So I dont wear em 🙂
    6. Cycling Shorts : Anything nice and comfortable would do.
    7. Sun Screen: If it is clody great !!! , if its not sunscreen would be recommended.
    8. Wrist Bands: To wipe of the sweat and it ofcourse it adds on to the eshtyle 😀

    •Cycling burns 600 calories an hour

    •On a bicycle you can travel 3 times faster than you can walk, for the same amount of energy.

    •On a bicycle you can travel up to 1037 kilometres on the energy equivalent of a single litre of petrol.

    •Twenty bicycles can be parked in the same space taken up by one car.

    •Cycling is great exercise: leisurely cycling (around 12 mph) burns calories at the same rate as very brisk walking (faster than 4mph)

  3. Vibhav says:

    There are about a billion bicycles in the world, twice as many as motorcars. Almost 400 million bicycles are in China. Every year some 50 million bicycles – and 20 million cars – are produced.
