The Bike Affair Ride Dictionary

TBA is known for its rides as well as its known for its bikes & accessories. And in our rides, we try to fit in all kinds of riders - newbies, casual riders, fitness freaks and serious long distance riders. Just to clarify how you can be part of our rides, why don’t you read through our Ride Dictionary.


The Sunday rides are fun rides to encourage new riders. The distance is generally lesser than 25 km. The focus is less on speed or distance and more on meeting like-minded folks and having a good time together.

Where do we ride? We don't like going to the same places every week, which means we take different routes and ride to different locations. Ameenpur Lake, KBR Park, Golkonda Fort, Gandipet Lake, Hyderabad Central University are some of the popular places we go riding to.

Route: Is either flat or minimal climbs. 
Distance: Around 25 km
Pace: Around 15 km/h
Difficulty: Low
Starts From: TBA, Kondapur @ 6 am (the start time could change based on the season)


The Tuesday Night rides are brisk 1.5 hours city rides, aimed to induce some suffering :-). The route selected usually have some small hills thrown in. Its good for some one looking for a quick workout. This Tuesday, we will climb past Quality Inn, ride down the Inorbit, to KBR and back.

This ride is aimed at building endurance. One can also be part of it to explore new places or enjoy a weekly dose of addiction.

Where do we ride? The route keeps changing though some of the popular roads include Shankarpally Road, Medak Road and Nagpur Highway. At times this ride also gets converted into a 2-day ride where we ride on Saturday, stay back at some place and then ride back on Sunday.

Distance: 80-100 km
Pace: 20-25 km/hour

We believe one NEEDS to get addicted to trails and once you are addicted, you can't do without them! Its lot of fun going down a hill or ripping through some twisting trail. Additional bonus is the sheer joy of being amidst nature.
