is a Long-Distance Cyclist Cosmo: Tell us about your hobby! Malvika Jain: “I love cycling; mountain biking to be specific. As a cyclist, I’ve toured the Nilgiris (900 kms) and the MTB Himalaya offroad cycling tour (500 kms). I’ve also done Ladakh, the Aravallis and Western Ghats.” C: How did you pick cycling?
MJ: “As a child, whenever my family went to the Himalayas for trips, I always wanted to get off the roads and really explore. I took up cycling because it’s not as slow as walking and not as fast as taking a car. It’s such a beautiful feeling of being self-reliant and independent.” C: What’s the coolest thing about being a cyclist? MJ: “Riding makes me feel ‘fighting fit’, that if I don’t cycle for a few days I feel like a sofa set.”
C: What’s the best reaction you’ve ever got from people on the road? S & M: “Once a pedestrian yelled out saying, ‘ Bhaag, Basanti Bhaag!’”
