My office is not more than 5 kms away from home in Mumbai. I take an auto. There are numerous traffic jams and because the auto is open you feel like a rat in a lab inhaling the toxic fumes. 4 kms is a short distance. One can easily cycle it, but I don’t. Various reasons…bad roads, potholes, puddles, assymetrical alignment of the various parts of the road constructed at various times and awful fellow drivers to say the least. There are also other reasons – that India is very hot and Mumbai is humid – you will be in no fit state to work after you reach office etc. But I don’t even do it other times, which is sad and largely because of the reasons mentioned above.

I came across this very interesting blog about Copenhagen called http://www.copenhagencyclechic.com/
and another article reviewing the blog and the blogger’s obsession with woman cyclists of the city, about the tough policy decisions governments have to sometimes enforce so that a slow change at least takes birth.
