El Ciclo Fiesta: An Ultimate Fitness and Wellness Cycling Ride

When was the last time you exerted yourself, really pushed yourself to a different limit?

Whether it is to boost your fitness levels, for health or just simply for fun cycling is a great way to get your heart rate up. With fresh air hitting your face as you cycle along Mumbai’s coastal belt of South Mumbai, cycling in the open air is a great way to start a Sunday, don’t you think?

On 20th December 2015, RentSetGo had organised a bicycle ride from Chowpatty to Nariman point, a total of 12 kms along with Kalyan cyclist who led the ride and Global Leading Holistic Health Guru, Mickey Mehta wellness experts who helped to gear us up for the ride (with a warm up and cool down session before the ride.)

Cycling is often an exercise, which we tend to ignore, associating with our childhood. After all, when we are adults the gym is always the best option that most of us opt for.

So what’s really in store for us if we cycle on the road; after all this type of cycling has got to be different from the stationary cycle that we have in the gym?

  • Cycling helps to build up our stamina levels: Stamina is basically our body’s ability to endure long periods of exercise. Cycling helps to build up our stamina levels, especially when ride sessions are long!
  • Cycling helps to strengthen and even increase muscle tone: Although many people underestimate cycling as an activity, holding beliefs that it only helps tone the lower body muscles, the truth is quite the opposite! In fact, cycling works on strengthening in a very holistic manner every part of the body (as they all are involved). Cycling in fact helps to improve the muscle in the legs, thighs, hips and even rear end!
  • Cycling eats up CALORIES: Did you know that cycling on a consistent basis could help you to burn FAT? Not only does it helps to boost your metabolic rate (long after you have finished your ride) but can help you on your weight loss mission!
  • Cycling improves our cardio-vascular fitness levels: When you cycle your heart rate is bound to shoot up and most of the time this ‘heart pound’ would be at a steady level. By making use of the largest muscle group in our body (the legs) cycling also raises our heart rates, which also benefits our stamina and fitness!
  • Cycling improves coordination and reduces stress: An activity, which is known to focus solely on, the legs, cycling actually helps in the coordination of other body parts as well.   These include arm-to-leg, body-to-eye and feet-to-hands.

Cycling is known to be a great stress-reliever as well where it’s easy to take one’s mind out of everyday life hurdles and rejuvenate our souls.

So what was it like to be apart of El Ciclo Fiesta?

While the meeting time was 7 AM sharp we met at Mickey Mehta’s 360 Wellness Temple (Studio) at Babulnath where we did our warm up exercises and selected our bicycles for the ride.

The tough part (this was REALLY TOUGH) was pushing myself and I’m sure for everyone else to get out of bed and show up on time! I made sure I had set my alarm and even asked some friends to call me and give me wake up calls! I had invited a few of my blogger friends as well Aziz Ampanwala, Monish Chandan and Apoorva Arya who also joined in. So I knew I wouldn’t exactly be a newbie there!

However, after waking up I was totally charged up for this cycling event, in fact very excited since I don’t exactly cycle outdoors and thought this would be an excellent form of exercise!

Equipped with helmets and cycles, we started our cycling ride with enthusiasm and happiness!

While some started off slow, there were others who went ahead with speed; but the fact of the matter was that it was a wonderful feeling to know that we were cycling along South Mumbai’s coastal belt, early in the morning on a Sunday when we would otherwise be sleeping at home!

Our journey towards NCPA apartments, which marked the midpoint of our cycling event, was also a place where we actually took a short break and played an Icebreaker game to get to know each other.

We were given a few minutes to talk to a person about a funny incident that happened in their childhood, which embarrassed them. After which, we had to introduce the other person to the group.

This was the only time when we all had a chance to interact with other people. With embarrassing and even shocking incidents to hear from one another, we all were in splits by the end of the event! Of course two winners were selected who were given a prize.

After this short game, we started our journey back to Babulnath and ended our event with some cool-down exercises. Of course there were some enthusiastic riders who challenged themselves to take a second round back to NCPA apartments and back!

RentSetGo’s take on sharing economy exclusively with CNBC

The Sharing Economy is revolutionizing the way we work today! Coming right from a talk with CNBC, Shruti Ajmera Reddy our Founder at RentSetGo -the only Indian company to be a part of this interview- tells you how it all came about!

“RentSetGo came out of a personal pain point and evolved into something really massive  looking at the rate at which we are growing today! We wanted to head out for a biking trip, we didn’t know what bikes to buy and what kinds are available in the market and the price points were insanely high for us to do it ourselves.” This is what pushed her to set foot into a market that’s valued today at 15 Billion Dollars and expected  to grow to 335 Billion Dollars by 2025.

Talking about how the market in India would adapt to such a system she believes that renting has always been a latent need in a value conscious economy like India.

Having started its operations already in Mumbai and Pune, when asked if expansion is on the cards she says “Geographically we are looking to enter in Tier 1 and Tier 2 cities, specially cities that are hub spots for tourism”

Sharing economy or sharing as a concept is not new, it has been around for ages Shruti explains. Trust in such a scenario works as a prime factor that drives companies such as AirBnb, Uber, etc. in the sharing economy space. So how do they do it? By leveraging technology to build a platform that identifies behavioral patterns among its users. She says “using data analytics, we map consumer behavior on our platform, we then assess and assign an internal credit score and based on that we carry out inspections and transactions.”

With already receiving more than 1000 app downloads in just a few weeks and a 300% month-on-month growth, RentSetGo is definitely out to prove a point “Sharing Economy is here to stay!”

The Great Escapade #3 – Ride to Kondhana Caves

One of our own – Satyam, went to the Karjat ride this Sunday and he had an amazing experience and shared his experience with us:

“It was a super awesome day where we rode for 20-25 kms and trekked uphill and back for close to 6 kms. The sights from the top of the trek – Kondhana Caves are amazing and what made it even more awesome was the dampner to everyone’s well planned Sunday-Mumbai rains! The ride that I went on at Karjat was a beautiful one and I would not even think twice about going there again! The food is awesome, the route is beautiful and the new people you meet are amazing!”
