Auroville 015 --------------------------------------------- Bike Trails

There are miles and miles of cycle tracks like this in Auroville. Some are much narrower with trees touching your path. Motorised vehicles are extremely rare except for stray mopeds. Everyone there seems to be an expert cyclist as cycle is the popular mode of transport within Auroville.


My family was was so taken up with this that we had hired cycles on all the days we were there. And someone like me who has not cycled in the last ten years did more than 12 kms on the first day. Suprisingly even Nila coped with it very well.


These tree lined tracks and occasional birds and the possibliity of seeing some small wild animal was very inviting. The first tree on the left is the famous Neem Tree. Even in the worst sunny day it is so refreshingly cool under the tree. More on this fabulous tree later.
