Default Bangalore: Photo + Bike group meets?

Hi

Are there any groups that do weekly/ weekend photography based bike trips in Bangalore?

If not, I am thinking of something along the lines of Bangalore Weekend Shoots (Flickr/ FB), only with biking also. Focus is on riding & shooting.

No brand specificity. (Any bike, any camera)
Moderated but member managed.

We can figure out the rest in the initial couple of weeks.

What say, folks?

Almost each and every big city now has a Breakfast ride group.
Bangalore should have one as well.
They follow the motto-Anybike/Anyone
Delhi group has people riding in on Honda Activa's to BMW GS 1200's
Look up on Social Networking sites,and you will find a lot of groups.

Yes; but do they focus on (pardon the pun!) photography as well.

The needs of a photo riding group are a bit different as fellow shutterbugs will attest.

There are quite a few groups. I'm a member of 2 - XBHP and BB.
The main motto is to ride and once we reach somewhere interesting (may be anywhere), we stop and click.

In case you'd be interested, we're doing a Bangalore - Tumkur - Arsikere - Chikmaglur - Belur - Hassan - Bangalore this Sunday.

Yes! Since Bangalore has lots of enthusiastic bikers, there are quite a number of groups which does Motor-biking / Biking + Photography. Have been part of such groups. Either once we reach destination or any good place on the way, we stop n do some photography.
