What’s the highest intensity of itch you have ever tolerated? Well, it actually depends on the person; some just can’t survive it a day, others have mastered the art of living with it forever.
I had this itch of riding for last few weeks. After multi-unsuccessful attempts to ride on a Sunday with friends, last Sunday was the ultimately the savior. All I need a little scratch, if not a long ride. I had had a plan to visit the Global Vipassana Pagoda at Gorai. While preparing for the ride, I remembered a picturesque spot about which Abhimanyu, my unofficial photography guru, told. This spot is somewhere near Mumbra. So, I decided to first visit this place, have some snaps and then ride back/ahead towards Gorai for some 50km a side ride. It certainly was an unplanned plan; and I was really happy to be on such a subtle ride.

Well, I couldn’t make it to Gorai; but that was an awesome ride I had! Unplanned, un-destined, ride and rain – the rain ride, a small trek – after an eon, if not more; what else you can ask to scratch an itch!
Looking ahead for the Weekend ride with my New identity in Bullet-World, the Bisons! Do visit our FB Page, will write soon how it feels to be Bison after being an Inddiethumper...soon....
