Ride a Bike: I’ve been into mountain biking for over 20 years now. All wheel sizes roll for me, 20″ to 700c. Pushing myself everytime I’m on a bike is what gets me charged up! The Ride Life is what I’m breathing right now…

Photography /Videography: Started clicking stills of my buddies who form the demented brigade of MotoX and bicycle riders in India.

Trail Building: Riding mountain bikes has made me want to make newer trails with features on the mountains I roll on. I end up spending a decent amount of time digging lines in the landscape. It has also led to designing and making few mountain bike trails for bicycle manufacturers in India.
