Apart from spending time with his kids, Misha and Zain, Shahid Kapoor loves to go on bike rides with his group of bike riders when he’s not busy shooting. The actor recently went on a three-and-a-half hour trip to a resort in Panvel near Mumbai riding on his bike with his biker gang. Shahid was accompanied by actors Harvardhan Rane, Rohit Roy, Suved Lohia and trainer Samir Jaura in the bike trip.

The group takes part in similar endeavours on a weekly basis.

Talking to Mid-day, Shahid Kapoor said, “It is a fun one-day trip with the boys [that I participate in]. It’s like a ‘boy thing’. I love riding, and we have a group. So the experience is fun. We try to do it once in a week.”

The group commenced their trip at 5.30am. Rohit Roy said, “We had a pit stop at [Khandala’s] German Bakery since it was a long ride, and a 45-minute climb to the hill. We were to return on Sunday, but stayed back since we were enjoying it.” Kunal Kemmu and Arshadi Warshi are also intrinsic members of the gang but couldn’t participate in this trip. Rohit added, “We formed the group of 12 a couple of years ago, and have been riding since then. It’s a mixed lot, comprising four to five actors, investment bankers, entrepreneurs, and corporate professionals. Five of us came together to ride to this resort. Shahid is among the most [interesting] and spiritual members. We had great conversations during this ride.”

Rohit informed that their group is particular about adhering to safety norms. He said, “We ride with proper gear, including helmets, jackets, riding pants and gloves.”
