Tired of WFH, how about Work from Cycle?


Three men from Maharashtra gave WFH a twist with 'Work from Cycle'. They pedaled from Mumbai to Kanyakumari on cycles while working along.

Work from home became the new normal of the day for most people around the world during the coronavirus pandemic. But these three men hailing from Maharashtra thought to give WFH a twist with 'Work from Cycle'. Bakcen George, Allwyn Joseph, and Ratish Bhalerao decided to go on a month-long cycling trip in midst of a pandemic. They pedaled from Mumbai to Kanyakumari on cycle, covering a distance of 1,687 kilometers. And as for office work they didn't miss out a day. The three professionals logged in from highway 'dhabas' and lodges whenever they would get time.

As reported by Indian Express, three of them have been friends for more than two decades. All of them felt WFH, which made travel and adventure enthusiasts feel stuck. So, instead of being caught up in negative thoughts and feeling frustrated in such trying times, they decided to make ‘Working from Cycle’ a reality. Although it presented with its fair share of challenges, the trio says ‘it was worth it’.

Their schedule was not such that allowed them to explore everything around them as normal tourists usually do. But it was non-touristy stuff that captured their attention and made the journey memorable. For their nearly a month-long trip, they cycled through picturesque routes. In Pune, Satara, Kolhapur, Belgaum, Hubali, Davanagere, Bengaluru, Salem, Madhuri, and Tirunelveli.

They managed to complete the trip as they clocked 80 km daily, on average, with longer rides over the weekends. According to the budget-travelers they spent around Rs 25,000 each for the journey, including lodging for over 26 days. In fact, for them, the pandemic presented an opportunity to chase this long-cherished goal while not compromising on office work.
