The local police in Ranchi has requested the family of Mahendra Singh Dhoni to inform them about the India captain's early morning bike rides purely for security reasons.
Dhoni's love for mean machine is well known, and in the last few days he was seen driving early morning to the local stadium to watch the training of young archers and footballers.
"He can ride a bike, but we have informed them (family) to tell us before he goes out anywhere (so that) escort parties could go," Senior Superintendent of Police Saket Kumar Singh told PTI.
Ahead of the September 22 CLT20 match against Titans at the JSCA stadium, the Chennai Super Kings captain went to train riding a bike but had a security cover deployed during his to and fro journey from residence to stadium.
The police will have to be on their toes till September 28 when the last CLT20 match in Ranchi concludes.
