Similarly Mumbai has a number of cycling groups, largely working through specific areas as well as specialised interests. A very interesting group, run by self confessed foodie Sunil Gandhi is known as Cycling For Foodies. As the name suggests, this group conducts rides with food as the main enticement. The group riders will generally ride to a prominent eatery, have a great time and return back. Distance is no stopper for a great foodie.
