Riding local, riding abroad. Doesn't matter. "One less car" bike commuting and "Bikes Belong" advocacy, plus "I ride solo" bicycle travel. Racing is fun, but there are so many equally great reasons to ride.

Breakfast at Cafe Lota
12 mini rava idlis molvapodi, served with fresh coconut chutney, and masala chai at the cafe attached to the Craft Museum, a short tuk tuk ride from Pragati Maidan metro. The idlis are made from a grain, perhaps millet, and maybe molvapodi is the lightly spicy mix they're fried in, along with fresh curry leaves. I negotiated the fare as 40 rupees, less than he asked, but more than a local would pay. The odd, vaguely western-style hotel breakfast is not worth the 250 rupees I paid yesterday. I had to trek across town to get here, but I'm feeling a lot better so I want to eat Indian food again. This and 2 glasses of chai cost 390 rupees.
