After promoting horse racing by taking to the sport at Mahalaxmi racecourse on Sunday, Bollywood Superstar Salman Khan yesterday busied himself in promoting yet another adrenaline gushing activity. Salman announced Being Human’s association with Tour de Mumbai - also described as a cyclothon, to be organized by Sport 18 and ID Sports.

At the start of the event, Salman seemed to be lost in his own world, sketching something on the notepad while the press conference proceeded. But when the actor took to the stage, he first apologized for being late for the event and then went down memory lane, and shared that it was his father Salim Khan, who taught him cycling.

Salman, who is quite a cyclist himself and loves to cycle his way to the shooing sets, said he often rode his cycle holding his mother’s pallu to perfect the balancing act.

Salman Khan was at his funniest best at the event. Talking about cycling as a sport he said, “One should be careful while riding a bicycle. ‘Zarasi galti’ and you may lose the ability of producing kids.”

The hot Khan, who is one of the fittest actors in Bollywood, divulged some of his fitness secrets too. He said, “I do my cardio on cycling. I think going to the gym and running on a treadmill or a cycle there in a blank room is a total waste. I prefer cycling on the roads instead, though there are my bodyguards around me, but it’s more fun and keeps you fit.”
