A few of us are planning a bike ride on the 12th of September to the following destination suggested by n_Aditya:

"On the Kanakapura road towards Chunchi falls and mekedatu. Its only 100 kms one way and the scenery on the way is awesome."

The tentative list is :

n_aditya
abhinav.s
rdna
sammyboy
sriram.iyer - To confirm
amarprusty
nkrishnap - (with better half ??)

If anyone else would like to join, please add yourselves to the list. This is going to be a relaxed ride, aimed at enjoying the bikes, the company of fellow bhpians and the scenery.
In case of bad weather we plan to have a small meet instead. Details not decided yet.

Guys,
At Sangama, its a normal routine to cross the river on foot and reach the other side to visit Mekedatu. 2 rivers meet here. One is the cauveri and the other is the akravathi. Remember, akravathi is now the mighty Bangalore drain. So be cautious while you play in the waters as one might get sick pretty soon. The walking path is right thru this water. Cauvery joins a little further but no one crosses there.

We came to know of this in our recent trip when we took a detour to a reservoir some 10-15 kms before sangama. we had a casual chat with the engineer there and that guy mentioned that this is the Bangalore drain and no more a river. The stench at the dam is unbearable.

In case you plan to visit mekedatu, one your way back instead of taking the bus, walk for a kilometer and keep an eye on the left to find some sandy beaches. They are nice to play.

Hey Krishna, Thanks for the update. I am not sure if we would want to smell the drain too, just the ride should be good enough this time

Hey sammyboy, could you let me know what other bikes will be joining? I know there will be one R15 and a RTR180. Would like to join in, but not sure if my slightly wheezy RXZ would be able to keep up.

Hey bro, its just going to be a fun ride with absolutely sane speeds. I am sure the RXZ will be more than comfortable. BTW, there will be a Ninja and probably a Bulllet too. Dont worry about such things man

So for now, here are the confirmed meaters:

- Sammyboy
- N-Aditya
- Suhaas307
- Nikhilb2008 (are you listening? )
- Krraj (silent spectator )

I've PMed Avishar and Preetam_korg as well, waiting for a response from them.

For those who don't know where the place is, it's ridiculously easy to find. It's inside the Indiranagar BDA Complex/RTO, bang on the Indiranagar Double Road. There is a massive Adigas on the perpendicular road and a park on the opposite side, and for those coming from Frazer Town/Benson Town/Vasanthnagar and beyond, you must come onto Old Madras Road and get into Indiranagar. PM/text/call me for detailed directions.

Meat time: 7:00 pm (10.09.10)
