Cool Adventure Sports in/near Bangalore

Hi,
Could someone provide me with pointers to any place which offers adventure sports in/around Bangalore? Looking at something on the likes of bungee jumping, and hang gliding.

There is going to be a adventure sports exhibition starting in palace grounds from 04/11, may be you should visit to find more info.

Other than this there is the white water rafting in kabini, gliding takes place in jakkur strip some times. I can forward some event to you in the future.

Isn't driving on the roads of Bangalore an Adventure Sport in itself?

In case you do come to know of some such event, please let me know.
About the palace grounds event, any further info, or contact details?

It very much is, but this is for someone who as of now is not driving on Bangalore roads.

Condor, this is for private participation. Its for my wife. She is quite interested in these. I am not. I fear heights.

A friend of mine is starting a sky diving club(he is a professional skydiving instructor from New Zealand). This club is going to be completely community driven and he's planning the first sky diving event in Indore in one of the three day weekends in September. If someone is interested in doing something really extreme and crazy checkout his blog:
Skydive India
