A basic question for kakkars

Recommended Posts

Guest cyclistsingh

Hi,

I am an avid road cyclist. For cycling seriously you have to wear padded shorts or bib shorts, they look something like this: https://podia.cc/shop/club-bib-shorts-regular/

These are not ordinary shorts. They are padded and they allow you to sit for long hours on the saddle, without them cycling for long distances is impossible. Forget even short distances.

Therefore, wearing kacherra is not possible. Can the bib shorts be considered a substitute kacchera if wore one leg in and out. Also wearing kirpan, kungha is not possible while cycling. Well kungha might be possible. However, you do need to wear a helmet to take part in cycling events.

I'd like to know if it is possible to even continue with cycling while being amritdhari. When I say cycling I am not talking about the casual neighbourhood rider. I am talking about serious cycling with professional gear.

Best,

Hey,

I do long-distance running and wear compression legging under kachera for it. I know what you mean Re comfort!

Professional cycling is a specialist thing. For training or 'race day' get dressed in your cycle gear however you need to. The Guru knows you are not breaking your faith in him or his maryada. Because after race you put your 5ks back on.

Anyone who wants to discourage you - get lost. 

A Sikh professional cyclist - that will be very cool, do us proud bro!

Wear your kachera over the club shorts. 

 

Why can't you wear a kirpan? If you really can't. You can always wear a Dori wali kirpan if you are really stuck

 

Kangha even if you couldn't put in your head, could easily go in a pocket?

You can wear the necklace that has a kirpan and kanga. For the kacherra you can try to make a small one that clings to your body more. If not just do a rdas before and after riding your bike that youre taking off your kakar and please forgive me
