After some heart-burns with Firefox Bikes (in India), my Trek 4300D arrived to please me and to restore my health. It has already given me a heart which made me forgive all the irritating and painful things FireFox Bikes did after I had placed my order for a bicycle with them. I shall talk about that someday later, right now its to share my celebration about this new arrival at my place that is Trek 4300D.
In the past one year, I had very distinct symptoms of deteriorating health, though at slow pace, I felt. But I was quite worried and depressed; alarmed with failing knees and foul smell in my urine, which could be dangerous. And I did not have courage to visit a doctor, lest he advises me knee replacement, as I was thinking I am another `Atal Bihari Vajpayee’ in the making. I could not walk down the stairs from my 2nd floor flat, without distinct limps and wobble.
As I have already shared the story of how my Treak arrived. Three days, after I had placed order for my bicycle, I went to the military hospital with Chirag (our son), who had to undergo physiotherapy for his broken elbow on his left arm. I thought of having routine medical tests. I was told that my cholesterol and sugar levels were high, I was sweating with the news. But doctor told me its manageable right now, though with medicines only.
I am sure that most of you will not believe that within 15 days of cycling, my knees got 90% better. What else I can ask from my new sweetheart – Trek? I should be worshiping this bicycle now everyday, I think. Its like God sent it for me to save me from disease and bless with much better health, which I had sacrificed while battling against the after effects of recession. Since, I have survived the battle which ensued after I lost everything to recession bloodbath, though with the help of my close friends. Now, I have to regain the lost health standards for me, my family and my work.
After the miraculous results of cycling, I am more and more encouraged to cycle everyday. Its not only good for health, its a great pleasure riding these bikes, no words can express the joy of riding these wonderful swanky bikes, which are so very well made. I have started cycling around 22 kms on an average everyday, sometime more. Recently, I did a solo cycle trip to Ambala Cantt. I did 80 kms in a day, return was 55 kms in one day non-stop. It has helped me regain my lost faith in my body and stamina. Thanks to my sweetie Trek 4300D !!!
Cycling has not only done good to my health alone, it has altered the route of my life now. I have become more disciplined about life style, work and perception. Cycling has encouraged me to be strict on my diet, it helps a great deal. Though, I have not been `indisciplined’ about my diet ever, I have always been careful. But now I am on a good diet in a planned manner. I do not know if its cycling or diet control but the smell in urine disappeared within a week or so. I do not know what it means, but its a good sign for sure. New life now … I have all the reasons to celebrate it now.
I am rediscovering myself. Now, I sleep well as I have started sleeping early to get up early for cycling. My bicycle has improved my discipline like no one else could. It has changed my perception about work, health and fun. I have always g felt and followed – work never ends, even if you work relentlessly for 24 hours a day, so why kill myself for something which will not end, even if I end myself with over work for unusually long hours. Once again, thanks to my bicycle.
Now, my sole goal is to live as a healthy man which gives happy life for sure. A healthy man will not die of empty stomach (capable of hard work to earn), even if you are penniless. Best is to work, not over-work and kill yourself with cholesterol, stoke and other disorders. I have added cycling in my passions and hobbies. I am learning about cycling – which means about the maintenance of cycle, consulting doctors for diet tips and health, consulting the senior cyclists about the related subjects, etc.
I have all the reasons to celebrate this new life and share my joy of cycling with you all. I am sure many of you can get benefited with some posts here. I am going to take some of you along on this wonderful journey on these two simple looking wheels. I shall be posting and sharing tips about good health through cycling, all about cycling, including technical issues.
Its a wonderful journey which I have begun by rediscovering myself with my Trek 4300D and I am celebrating everyday.
