Let me know a landmark as im not very much aware of the blocks.
Also let me know when do you want me to come and pick you up, also its better that i pick up directly from your home or some nearby place from where you stay rather than you waiting for me in the road @ 3.30 in the morning .

cheers

Hello,

Please indicate the Meeting Point, from where everyone could drive along. I suggest we meet @ start of Airport road and park on side in discipline to avoid any traffic jams and early morning Flight hoppers.

Also, lets decide on a Breakfast point while coming back. I am not familiar with Hotels on that road. Someone please point. We need ample parking place considering there would be at least 4 cars.

The Maggi and Omlettes at the top of Nandi Hills are awesome and add to the crisp weather feel. Any reason for some other breakfast place?

Would agree to this. Let's have breakfast at Nandi Hills itself.
BTW, Guys, question, What time the gates will be open? Last I heard it used to be 6AM only. So we'll miss the Sunrise? Or is there any other point where one can get a nice view of the Sunrise?
I'm 90% in for the 15th meet. Will be taking my 4 wheel, still not decided which one. Will get my photography gears too.

To reiterate,
Meeting place : After Hebbal Flyover, in front of Columbia Asia or some proper Landmark?
Meeting time : 3:30am.
Starting time : 4.00am.
Someone please take the responsibility of co-ordination (I'm not very good at that), we will send our mobile numbers or he can share his number to all so that it'll be easy to co-ordinate.
And be careful while returning back from Nandi Hills, the Radar Gun traps will be in place for sure.
Regards and drive safe,
Kaushik

opposite to Columbia Asia sounds like a a good meeting spot; the roads' wide enough to accommodate our rides (in a straight line of course).

i'll try to rig my ride to record video; will plan the shots when we meet up.

quick question: anybody bringing their spouse/family?

@kaushik_s: if we start from Columbia Asia at 4am, where will the bikers park their bikes? is there somewhere safe they can park their rides (in case the cops don't let 'em pass beyond BIAL)?

Well, refer any of the prev post, and you can couple up with any of the bhpians.
OR wait for the Gmap that I will upload tonight.
then, you can ensure the Rendezvous point.

promptly corrected.
We should have the route by tonight, clear with marks, and all.

Some experienced guys, please pitch in to answer the stuff about bikes/gates opening/ cops allowing bikes/cars in! and all hullaballoo!

Families welcome!

<I guess, that would mean, further meets would get smoother approvals!> hehehe!
(everyone has to be on their best behaviour though! sigh! hehe)

Ace.

@Baaz:
Whats with all the espanol !! lolz!

Oops, I almost forgot about the Bikes. Not sure where will be a safe place to park the Bikes. There is this Esteem Mall nearby or may be one can park at Columbia Asia itself, but I'm not very sure if this is ok. And is it a confirmed news that Bikes are no longer allowed? It's kind of insane to put a rule like that. If no other option then it has to be BIAL only.

BTW, I'll be coming via BannerGhatta Road-Hosur Road-Minsk Square-Rajbhavan etc. so anyone wants a ride do let me know. It's always nice to have a company. Seems like it'll be a sleepless night for me

Not my news buddy, I saw this news on this thread only. I think they should allow the bikes and they have to allow the bikes. What about people who live beyond BIAL and use bikes for commute? So I think bikes will be allowed.
