whoosh!

A rather amazing thing happened while cycling back home from office.

After IIT, I took the new road that leads down Powai hill, it's to the left of the existing road and the slope's gradient is much steeper. I was probably going faster than I have ever ridden this cycle before and was enjoying the feeling. A biker overtook me from the right and I noticed that there was no one else behind me and another biker just ahead. The other biker was a bit slow and I was catching up on him.
I shifted to top gear, gathered momentum and ... on an open road with no traffic in sight, cleanly overtook a machine powered bike.

I just couldn't stop smiling all the way down till Gandhi Nagar. I am anything but a speed freak, but life would suck without these moments of madness.
