This is the first time that I am going to tell you guys about my experience. I am not a cyclist. But from ages I wanted a cycle and wanted to ride it. Just for fun, just for my happiness. So lockdown thankfully made it happen. And I bought a cycle!!!! I kind of get a very “free” kind of a feeling when I do cycling. It actually releases stress. It actually lets me feel the air and makes me closer to the environment. But that’s for sure that one should leave early morning to cycle when there is less traffic or later at night. And needless to say that Saturday Sunday’s are the best days to go on a ride.
Alarm rang at 5 a.m. He snoozed it. Again rang at 5.15. Snoozed it again. But no. We have to get up. We can’t let this early cool weather, when we are all rolled up in our cosy blankets smash our diligence to go for cycling. So we got up and all geared up. Generally we keep a target. We mark a route and come back. But today we decided we will not think about till where we will go and we will just keep going till our body allows us. // It was a windy day. A cool breeze was brushing our face. Weather was great. And clouds were part of us too. Around 5.45 a.m we left from home. Since it was good windy and while we were cycling, it was bit difficult for us as the wind was against our direction. Still we didn’t stop and kept moving on. Apart from anything it was really great.
While we were cycling.. on our route we saw “Bio Diversity Park” and thought “Why not let’s go here??” This park is huge and is spread in a very large area. It is somewhere near “Arjangarh Metro Station“- Delhi. I had never been or even had any idea about it. So we thought we should definitely go here. We entered and “IT’S A JUNGLE” is the first thing that came out of my mouth. There were many cyclist there plus also people had come for walks and jogs and with their pets. Some were sitting in some nook and doing their meditation. You enter this place, but you should keep an idea about your path as you may loose a track of where you are. Yes you heard it right. Because it is this big of a place.
As you see, it has such narrow paths. We really had to get our cycle in our control as there were steep slopes where our cycle at times had touched a speed of 30KPH. Which is actually crazy. Specially when people are also walking there. The paths are not more than 2′-6″ wide. Some areas it was even less than this. It was such as experience though. While we were cycling on thin paths, the bushes would just hit our face. Some have even left a mark.
Biodiversity Park is a must go to place to experience the nature within this crowded and hectic city. For once you forget where actually you are. This place gets a thumbs up from me. We (me and aman-my cousin) had an extremely fulfilled ride.
