Don't Forget Pune!
This photo is from another Indian randonneuring blog appropriately titled: Randonneuring in India. It is about the adventures of the Pune-based randonneurs. As has been pointed out to me, it was the Pune riders who pulled off India's first brevet and not the Bangalore folks. For more on the city of Pune, see this Wiki site.
I will not be drawn into this rivalry, but as you'll see from their website, the Pune randonneurs are a hardy bunch and riding in true rando style. Lots of big smiles with a sprinkling of dazed faraway looks. Very familiar!
OK, I will be drawn in to this extent: the Bangalore folks claim they have the most active cycling scene in India. I'll let them all take it from here. In any event, they are all building the cycling community in a nation of over a billion folks!
Keep it rivalrous,
