The traffic on the regular road (below the elevated toll-way) is sparse at dawn but be cautious since speed camera's are placed on the bottom portion of the flyover to photograph speeding motorists. It flashed at me last time but i guess they got a pic of my lid only.
they have speed cameras on Hosur road? Never knew about this. Thanks for the heads up

In that case, we can avoid the expressway completely, as Aditya says, there won't be much traffic in the morning and signals might be switched off in all probability. We'll go with the earlier plan itself - meeting point at Honda showroom sounds good

Signals might be working but slow down at signals even if it is green and watch for morons who'll barge in from all directions.

But then again, aren't we all super-skilled in milkman / paper-boy moped-dodging? Think we'll summarize this

Meeting point in Bangalore: Honda showroom, Hosur Road
Start time: 6AM on 6th May 2012
Going to: Krishnagiri Dam
Approx distance: 210 kms (roundtrip)

Guys as mentioned by Ampere, it will be really hot at krishnagiri dam. Second, Krishna Veg, next to McD is the best option for breakfast, avoid A2b.

this is true. early morning on Hosur road is chaos. people bolting across the road and driving haphazardly. once you cross Hosur you can safely stretch your legs

Oh! Sorry guys, but if it is Saturday then I don't think I can make it. I have things to take care of at home that are urgent.

Maybe next time ...
