Since i will be on my bike, can i bother anyone so my family can carpool? I dont want to trouble anyone so if its a bother, i can bring my car along, its been ages since its been on a drive anyway.



We had been to chickmagalur a couple of weekends back and Prashant on a bullet reached blore earlier than us. He maintained constant speed throughout while we had to stop for breaks often on the pretext of coffee, snacks, etc.

So in all probability you will be quicker than us



Mr. Mahesh Kora.
Which area are you from? Though at that time of the morning, it shouldnt be a problem.

I'll be alone in the car and will be happy to help.

Ok... If no one else from that size of town can do it, I'll volunteer. Early in the morning, driving to Malleshwaram shouldnt be a problem.

IIRC the heads up display board is damaged near the junction.
I think guyfromblr, asdon and maybe some others will join in at the NICE intersection from the other side as well. Better to have the meet at NICE junction in my opinion, or else a few others may miss it.

Just for information's sake (in case anyone is unaware), for people coming on b'ghatta road from IIMB side, you have to take a right turn at NICE to go towards the Nh4/NH48 meeting point. For people coming from the other side (direction approaching IIMB), you have to take a left at NICE to proceed towards the meet location.

At the toll gate, you need to take toll pass for "Tumkur road". This will be the last exit on NICE and the drive distance on NICE is approximately 33km from the B'ghatta road entry point.

I'll take up this 'sniper' activity with a 55-200mm tele lens will do it silently from camouflaged locations.

That's cool! Was thinking of waiting for everyone from this side to come and then catch up with the guys from the other side right after the place where we pay the toll. Since the cut at the BG road to NICE road is very small, there is no place to park there. Was thinking on those lines.. Neverthless.. Whatever suits all suits me as well . Looking forward for the meet!!

Shrey

Here is my plan, leave Home(E-city Ph-II) at 4:45am, Reach NICE intersection after BG Road, pay toll get inside the Road(100mtrs), wait for others to join max by 5:15am, then head towards Tumkur road. As the gang is big enough, we should stick to timelines.

I think around 6 or 7 of us are meeting near BG road - NICE junction. Parking won't be an issue there. The gang coming from IIMB side can take a right turn at the NICE road and park it to the left side of the road just before the toll booth. There is plenty of space there and traffic density will be thin at that time.

Hmm, the number of pages in this thread seems to have increased quite a bit over the weekend. Been held up with work at office and home .. terrible times!

Just glanced thru the pages and don't see anyone from Rajaji Nagar/Vijaynagar area. Will I be the only one in my car? Does anyone want to join?

Aditya: noticed your post. Lemme know if your folks need to be picked, since its quite closeby for me.

And what is the meeting point in the morning? Is it at the NH4-NH48 junction?

Another question - why should we drive all the way to C'lore? We're anyway planning to go towards Aldur/Balehonnur - so we need not have to actually go to C'lore - saves some time at least! Hard to say that though, considering its my hometown

We will not drive upto Chikmagalur, here is the route we need to follow, and as we have a localite with us now, from Belur onwards we will cruise Royally.
