[The Adventure Cycling Association is a non-profit, member-run organization out of the U.S. that publishes an attractive print magazine called “Adventure Cyclist” and runs a very informative web site. They also send out email newletter called “Bike Bits.”   I thought this item from a recent issue might be of interest to Indian readers. — UR]

YHAI in Dona Paula, Goa

India Sprouts Green

…In just one year, the Delhi Bicycling Club of New Delhi, India, has grown from one member to five hundred. Nalin Sinha, the original lone member, says half of Delhi’s population travels less than six kilometers per day, a distance easily covered by bicycle. “It means one can cycle to work, reduce pollution, and keep fit very easily,” he is quoted as saying in this story from The Times of India:

Hmmm, I think I said something very similar in my interview with Goa Today magazine.  Could a Goa Cycling Club be far away? Who’s in?!

      You’re on the right track! Here are some ideas:
      – Click some of the links under the “Cycle clubs in India” list on the Goa Cycles Web page:
      – Continue to use the Internet to locate groups’ Web sites.
      – Try Facebook to search groups.
      – Try what I did: modestly start your own group! Even cycling with one other person can build curiosity and enthusiasm!

      Good luck!
