जो कल था वो आज नही है और जो आज
परिवर्तन किसी भी प्रकार का हो
परंतु कभी हमें परिवर्तन पसंद आ
तनिक विचार कीजिए, यदि परिवर्तन
जो जिस समय , जिस काल में होता
विचार कीजिए और स्वीकार कीजिए !
GNWCC always call for a fun ride every weekend and today on 2nd Feb 2020 we decided to ride to Lodhi Garden, New Delhi. it was an amazing experience and beautiful surrounding. one can plan for family outing to spend some quality time there.
I would also like to give you a brief history of Lodhi Garden.
Lodi Gardens or Lodhi Gardens is a city park situated in New Delhi, India. Spread over 90 acres (360,000 m2),it contains, Mohammed Shah’s Tomb, Tomb of Sikandar Lodi, Shisha Gumbad and Bara Gumbad, architectural works of the 15th century by Lodis – who ruled parts of northern India and Punjab and Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province of modern-day Pakistan, from 1451 to 1526. The site is now protected by the Archaeological Survey of India .Lodi Gardens is popular for exercise and walking enthusiasts
The gardens are situated between Khan Market and Safdarjung’s Tomb on Lodhi Road and is a hot spot for morning walks for the Delhites.
Further into the gardens, are remains of a watercourse which connects the Yamuna River to Tomb of Sikandar Lodi. This tomb still has the battlements enclosing it. Nearby to Sikander’s tomb is the Athpula (“Eight Piered”) Bridge, the last of the buildings in Delhi, built during the reign of Mughal Emperor Akbar,it contains seven arches, amongst which the central one being the largest. The tomb of Mohammed Shah, the last of the Sayyid dynasty rulers, the earliest of the tombs in the garden, was built in 1444 by Ala-ud-din Alam Shah as a tribute to Mohammed Shah. The tomb is octagonal in shape, with numerous ornamental Hindu-style chhatris around the central dome, numerous arches, verandahs and sloping buttresses. There are turrets at each corner. The main tomb is supported by a 16-sided drum. It is of a flattened type and is surrounded by chhatris, which make it look diminutive compared to its substantially larger base. Several years later, the Tomb of Sikandar Lodi seems to have been copied from this Sayyid tomb.
There is little architecture from these two periods remaining in India, Lodi Gardens is an important place of preservation. The tomb of Mohammed Shah is visible from the road, and is the earliest structure in the gardens. It is a good example of a combination of the Hindu and Islamic styles of architecture. The Hindu features include eight chhatris, each of them capped by a lotus finial with a decorative band around the base; corner ornamental pinnacles (guldastas)and chhajja.

As a cyclist what you eat and drink during training should mirror what you plan to eat during a sportive.
Knowing what your body likes to consume while riding is an essential basic to learn – some can survive entirely on energy gels and drinks, whereas others can only stomach real food such as biscuits, sandwiches or fruit. This really is subjective and typically follows a process of trial and error, or at least thinking about how you usually fuel yourself to perform at your best.
Turning up to a sportive second-guessing what you can and cannot tolerate is a risk that could leave you with regrets and a long slow bike ride to the finish.
“The importance of maintaining a healthy lifestyle alongside your fitness routine is key to ensuring you’re benefitting from the exercise you’re doing and the body requires a combination of all nutrients to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
There is a considerable amount of information out there to help and possibly confuse us all, but Nigel continues below to explain some of the additional details in brief:
“Our bodies are really sophisticated chemical factories and all the processors in our bodies need nutrients that give us energy and then drive those energy pathways such as fat, protein and carbohydrates. All of these are what we’d consider essential ‘micro nutrients’.
“The way I like to think of it is to try and maintain a diet that is quality over quantity. To ensure we get the right balance within the diet of riders at Team Sky and the GB team, the focus of nutrition is always on the quality of food, so we work really hard with the riders to make sure they’re eating plenty of vegetables, fruit, fish, chicken, lean meat, and carbohydrate sources. Having more wholegrain foods, such as rice, bread and pasta provides riders with vitamins, as well as carbohydrate.
“It’s a basic principle – if people keep it simple and if they eat real food, they will get all of the benefits that they put in.”
“If people try and work to a pattern of eating little and often, rather than eating their three meals a day it can be much more effective for weight loss and topping up energy sources.
“My ideal meal plan across the days is very simple and effective. Here’s an example of some simple foods to consume during a day – don’t forget to keep hydrated through all of this – my suggestion is to take in 500ml of fluid in every couple of hours when you’re not exercising.
Suggested Daily Eating Plan
- Breakfast – Porridge oats/eggs
- Mid morning snack – Fruit/Yogurt
- Lunch – Wholemeal bread sandwich/jacket potato/left over pasta from the night before
- Mid afternoon snack – a piece of fruit/pack of unsalted nuts
- Evening meal – A piece of chicken/ fish/other lean meat with Rice/Pasta/Vegetables
- Pre bedtime – A milky drink before bed
This guide will likely change depending on your activity and exercise schedule, but you can slowly increase portion size, without compromising the quality, should you become hungry through the day. It’s basically a good balanced diet, without excluding or including any specific, expensive, or unusual ingredients. Mix and match similar food types to offer variety and explore the many foods that we now have on offer.

First 50+KM ride of the year 2020(11th Jan 2020)
The benefits of cycling are almost as endless as the country lanes you could soon be exploring. If you’re considering taking up cycling, and weighing it up against other potential activities, then we’re here to tell you that cycling is hands down the best option.
Admittedly, we’re biased – but there are an awful lot of good reasons to choose bike riding as your newest pass time. Here are just a few…
- Cycling improves mental well-being.
- Cycling makes you happy.
- Cycling promotes weight loss.
- Cycling builds muscle.
- Enjoy second breakfasts.
- Better lung health.
- Cuts heart disease and cancer risk.
- Cycling is low impact.
Cycling promotes weight loss:
The simple equation, when it comes to weight loss, is ‘calories out must exceed calories in’. So you need to burn more calories than you consume to lose weight. Cycling burns calories: between 400 and 1000 an hour, depending on intensity and rider weight.
Of course, there are other factors: the make-up of the calories you consume affects the frequency of your refueling, as does the quality of your sleep and of course the amount of time you spend burning calories will be influenced by how much you enjoy your chosen activity.
Assuming you enjoy cycling, you’ll be burning calories. And if you eat well, you should lose weight.
Even committed cyclists are sometimes worry about getting on their bicycles in winter,biting winds can chill a rider’s enthusiasm to suit up and get outside. Yet once people get on their bikes in winter, they often find it less intimidating than they’d anticipated. Today Team GNWCC participated in ride organised in the name of I❤️NOIDA. although it was a cyclothon not a race but I realized in this ride that why do we call “specially-abled” to those who live the same challenging life like us despite of being physically alike.
Due to some sudden malfunction of pedal I was riding more like with a single pedal today and it made me understand that how much courage is needed for a “specially-abled” person. It was an awesome experience ridding with the fellow riders in the streets of Noida with marshals. I thank to the organizers for such an event which brings us together to form a healthy cycling community.
