Oh, i see , no no i was not trying to chase or race , i was trying to reach my wife's office asap, as she had an important meeting which she had to attend and she had missed her office bus.
But yes i agree i was driving fast , which i usually don't do within city limits .

Cheers.

Oh wow, I dint know there was a CCD. Good to know.

So, where are we meeting tomorrow and what time?

How about 'Tin Factory', just before K.R.Puram around 10PM?

I think that was because of those traffic speed radar guns, as i have seen them a couple of time on the BETL whenever i go to EC.
But anyways point taken.

Cheers

Hi arun_josie, its around 56 Kms from Jayanagar (I stay here). See the map below. You can check it on google maps.
Quick Meets at Bangalore-jnrkgf.jpg

I am fine with any place, any time. I stay in Jayanagar and will be passing through Koramangala to hit Old Madras road and then KR Puram.

I do not know where others stay, I can think of the below meeting points.
1. 2100 hrs @ Koramangala Inner ring road, after the Ejipura signal (the road is wide enough for us to stop and wait for others without disrupting the traffic)
2. 2140hrs @ Big bazar / RMZ building after the Baiyappanahalli metro station
3. 2200hrs @ KRPuram after the Tin Factory flyover.

Please pour in your suggestions.

My only requirement to be able to make this drive is that we leave after 2000 on saturday and are back by 0600 on Sunday. Barring that not working out, I am in. Starting from kr puram works nicely for me. Also, could someone coordinate and get everybodys phone numbers so we don't lose somebody on the way. I see that quite a few of you all know each other already, but this is for the benefit of those of us new to this

I believe we should start by around 8-9. Starting too late is a problem, because returning too late at unearthly hours also is a problem .

I suggest we meet up at around 8-9ish, and plan to get back at around 12 midnight or 1 AM.

Just to confirm that I have understood properly, the location is CCD on Hoskote-Kolar road?? I'm attaching a google maps link with the starting point at KR Puram Tin Factory, CCD and woody's on Kolar NH-4.
http://maps.google.co.in/maps?saddr=...ra=ps&t=m&z=11

For those who are content with a coffee, stick to CCD. For those who would like to eat something really solid, you have Woody's , provided we reach there before the kitchen closes.

Reaching around 9 might be a problem because that stretch has traffic most of the time till 10. So, can we catch up by 10 at that point? We can also finish our dinner at home and may be munch something in CCD.

So, you wanna back early ehn? Waz up, someones waiting?

Yup, that's the location. Just before the K.R.Puram Flyover (Hanging Bridge) Is everyone okay with this location as a meet point?

Drive to : CCD near KGF around 60KMS from K.R.Puram

We'll meet after the bridge as Tin factory junction will be choking with traffic even at midnight. There is enough space after the bridge just before the KR Puram BMTC bus stop. We all can assemble there.
