You love to explore the narrow winding village road that follows the river, but wont mind stopping by at an orange orchard enroute. You are not a tourist, you are an explorer. The culture, the heritage, the people, the food - they are as important to you as riding your bike.
Block Training - How does it work?
I often stress this - consistency is the bedrock of fitness and training. However, every multi-day bicycle tour makes me a stronger and better rider by the end of the tour. This happens although consecutive days of riding increases the short-term fatigue significantly. So, is this right? Should we do such an occasional short patch of near full day riding? Isn’t a regular consistent riding better?
Basic Bike Maintenance
Are you a new rider? Here are some essential tips to help you enjoy your ride better.
Should I train heavy?
What is train heavy? It is a practice where you use heavier equipment during training and switch over to lighter and more efficient equipment closer to important events. Like several other things, this is an approach that is easy to preach and tough to practise.

Q&A With Prajwal Pingali, Winner, BBCh U-18 XCO
"The climbs were steep and really bumpy, I almost wanted to stop beside the trail and rest mid-race due to the pain. The descends were just as bumpy as they were on slick road slabs. There were points at which I couldn't process the speed at which I was moving."
The Saddle Library
When we look at a new bike, the conversion always revolves about the frame, wheels and groupset, and the modest saddle is hardly ever part of any discussion. However, as one starts spending more time on the bike , the importance of the ‘right saddle’ can become annoyingly evident. Numbness around the soft tissues, chafing and pain around the seat bone areas are some of the most common complaint we come across. ...
Astr Sidewinder - Uday's Experience
It's been an year of riding the Merida road bike. I'm starting to think that instead of just sticking to one bike, I'd have to ride other bikes occasionally to get to know them and feel the difference. My activity included daily commuting to work, random evening solo rides, and occasional weekend rides with TBA. I was doing all of this on the same bike, and crossed the 5000 km mark this month.

If you are new to cycling and looking for bikes, suggestions, gear, community and planned rides The Bike Affair (TBA) is the place to go in Hyderabad. TBA's efforts over the years for the growth of cycling in Hyderabad are appreciable and unmatched. Lakshmi Karthik Kudaravalli
The team at Bike Affair is focused on building a community first and selling the bike is what happens in the process. It is never the other way around. Have been to other stores in the city too and everyone else is looking to make a sale and that is their #1 goal. Nothing wrong with that but what Bike Affair is trying to do is pure passion and what they get from people is faithful patronage. They do have fun and try their best to make sure you love your bike and biking experience regardless of whether you buy a bike from them or not. Highly recommend this place! Singdha Karthikeyan
This has been my go-to place for bike service and components over the last 2 years. Krish, Gokul and the staff are all passionate about riding themselves and it shows in the interactions. They've built a strong community of cyclists in Hyderabad. I highly recommend them - whether its buying a bike, bike services, apparel, group rides or just hanging out and watching the classics at the store :) Akhil Sehgal
