Looking for some cycling or biking inspiration? There are a lot of fantastic Instagram accounts to follow, but here are 5 of our favourites.
From biking enthusiasts narrating their travel adventures to professional racers and cyclists sharing tips, follow the people we’re about to introduce to you and feed your two-wheeled addiction:
This hilariously named Instagram account run by a Bangalore-based company selling bicycles and cycling-related equipment and accessories, is dedicated to “redefining the way cycling is experienced in India.”
The bikers behind the account keep their feed lively and interesting; they post about trail riding and Indian road races (such as the 100km Nandi Epic), as well as intriguing cycling accessories such as the ‘Ass Savers’ (you read that right) aka fenders that keep your behind dry.
Chennai-based Rehana Reya is a professional competitive motorcycle racer and her account serves as a window into the adrenaline-filled arena of bike racing.
Reya posts short videos of her speeding around the circuit and drag racing, as well as pictures of racing bikes and gear.
Not only is Abhijit the vocalist of metal band Escher’s Knot, he is also a biker who loves to travel, and has ridden all around India on his Royal Enfield Himalayan.
His feed is filled with beautiful shots of the countryside from a biker’s POV, from driving dirt trails through the forest, and over desert dunes. Follow him if you’re a wanderer yourself.
Curated by Velocrush India, a recreation and sports website, this account promotes cycling not only as a mode of friendly transport and a sport, but as a way of life.
Scroll through their feed to find inspirational quotes, lots of humour, photos of cyclists on adventures across India as well as tips to promote fitness.
This account is curated by Tushar Jaitly, owner of TJ Moto, the small but famed custom bike studio located in New Delhi.
Follow along to see his pictures of his unconventional rides, customized bikes (including Harley Davidsons, Royal Enfields and Bullets) and vignettes of road trips.
