We planned this Sunday for cycling... And on our way to Bonta it started raining heavily. Because we didn’t want our plan to fail, we decided to go for the fun ride in the rains. Contrary to our fears en-route, it felt even more worth it. We loitered around the whole North Campus Area, cycling around Bonta with our bikes rolling up and down the hilly pathways. The Rain Drops seemed heavier with the increased pace of cycling. We met monkeys, snails and very long earthworms during our expedition. From Bonta we went to St. Xavier's School and enjoyed our tour there. The Luck Was on our side and due to heavy rains and Sunday the traffic was very less. And we took advantage of the opportunity, and seized the roads. Since we were biking for last 3 hours, experiencing growls in our stomach out of hunger, we decided to hop into a famous eating place in Kamla Nagar i.e. Bille di Hatti and enjoyed Poori and Aloo chole ki sabzi with a glass full of Malai wali Lassi. The hot and fresh breakfast was no less than a royalty after getting drained in the rains. We decided to go back to the Delhi University Metro Station to return those lovely cycles, singing songs on our way back. The place is full of green vegetation and clean air and nice roads. We will soon plan our next biking trip again.
