In his own words, “I have been cycling ever since I can remember. I was always an active sportsperson, but as far as cycling is concerned, I probably started taking it seriously – intending to do it the right way that is – about 10 years ago. I am excited about long-distance rides, mostly off-road trails in the hills and mountains. Seven years ago, I set up a cycling group and named it PedalYatri.”
Professionally, before taking over as the Chief Editor of Times Internet, Rajesh had served as Editor, Times Interactive, in 1999. During that stint, he was instrumental in launching the three major online initiatives of the Group viz The Times of India, The Economic Times and Indiatimes.
