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.

Enter the mountains
About 2.5 hours from Delhi the mountains start to appear. They're stony and barren, but provide a contrast to the agricultural flat lands. Many fields are planted in a rectangular grid, each bed has raised edges, to help retain water. I assume these are rice fields. There are plenty of brilliant white herons wading alongside the farmer tending the paddies with a hoe.
