I may not be with you, but rest assured, some random, cycling related fact will be there to haunt or amuse you….
In 1986, Hero Cycles produced over 18,500 cycles a day, the highest in global reckoning. With the 48% share of the Indian market, this volume catapulted Hero in the Guinness Book of World Records as the largest bicycle manufacturer in the world.
13th August is the first anniversary of the death of Om Prakash Munjal who, born in 1928, was a co-founder of Hero Cycles in 1944. The company started out as a bicycle spare parts business.
So, as you have your Tea & Cake, bear this entrepreneur in mind and make a mental note to look after you bicycle bits and pieces as you expect your bicycle to look after you.
Assembling at the Rose & Crown for a 10am departure please….
