Roadside Bicycle Repairs

Who needs an actual shop to run a cycle repair business? After all, your customers are on the road. Just string up a few tyres, and wait for the victims of Bangalore’s badly-surfaced roads to ride by.

Is it my imagination, or have the roads got even worse over the past two months while I was away? Any pothole that had been poorly repaired earlier in the year has been attacked and enlarged by the monsoon rains. In other places it looks like the surface of the road has been peeled off. Getting across the city is harder than ever.

By the way, today is a holiday in India – Gandhi Jayanthi – to celebrate the birthday of Mohandas K Gandhi (2 October 1869 – 30 January 1948).

    1. Thanks for your comment. Yes, now that the rains have stopped, the weather is great. And there’s always something interesting to look at on Bangalore’s roads on those endless car journeys.
