Thanks for the update @KarthikK.
Tough ask - would you also know/summarise the various groups coming from a particular locality ? If that's too much, at least I'd like to know:
1. anyone from Old Madras Road/Indiranagar ?
2. the first meeting point for the entire group and time (Is everyone meeting before Bidadi ?)

Here are the NICE road entry points. Members unfamiliar with the city interiors - all you need to do is choose the NICE entrance closest to you, and get down at Mysore road (in the direction towards Mysore).

For members taking the NICE road from North Bangalore side, you have 2 entry points into NICE -

Point A - at peenya (Tumkur road) and
Point B - at Magadi road. Map plotted below :
http://maps.google.co.in/maps?saddr=...sz=13&t=m&z=12

Point C will be the meeting point for 7 AM (direction heading towards Mysore)


For members coming from South Bangalore, you have 4 entries into NICE expressway.

Point A - Hosur road
Point B - Bannerghatta road
Point C - Kanakapura road
Point D - PESIT / Hoskerehalli entrance

http://maps.google.co.in/maps?saddr=...sz=13&t=m&z=13

Point E is the meeting point for 7 AM.

No information on who is from which exact area, since its a really large group this time, sorry for that. Going by our previous large size meets, it is best to let people come on their own to the common meeting point. Coordinating and calling up 40 people one by one is a futile task, and placing micro-level meeting points in each area (before the main point) as a formal rule will mess up the whole schedule if the sub-groups are stuck waiting for some members who didn't share their phone numbers.

BHPians unfamiliar with the route can PM me, and I will give them my phone number for help in case they are getting lost tomorrow morning.

Members are free to post their departure area here like you did, and wait for others to respond though. If someone else is coming from the same area, he/she can always respond by PMs, exchange numbers and you guys can decide to come together.

The first (main) meeting point for everyone remains Mysore road NICE exit at 7 AM, and I leave sub-group coordinations to you guys - its optional. Some people may choose to come directly. We will wait for half an hour to everyone to come to this point. At 7.30 AM, we will leave the place for Bidadi. Anyone who is delayed can join us directly for breakfast at Bidadi, or directly at Speedway

mashmash,

HSR Group is assembling in front of BDA Complex at 6:15 AM (its located on 14th Main Rd, Sector 1, just opposite to KFC - If your coming from ORR, you would need to go down the flyover which comes after Mantri Sarovar -turn left at the junction below and proceed for a few meters ahead - its on the left side)

As of now - motomaverick, viju, keyank and myself will be meeting there. Do let us know if you would be joining us. If I have missed out anyone from HSR apologies, its just too many people!!

And guys from HSR - do we go green and car pool or are you all bringing your cars?

Forgive me if this is politically incorrect, but I don't believe in car pooling or using public transport.

Anyway, request everyone to be there before 6:15. As long as it is not raining, you will find me standing bang opposite to KFC with my RX135. Else I will be there in a blue Ritz. Looking forward to riding with you all.

Definitely
A 6 AM start from here will be OK. I will reach in front of VIMS hospital by 5:55 AM. If we are on time near HSR we can meet the group from there and head together.
We have mainly three routes to the meeting point :
1. Through Silk Board-EC-NICE Road - 43 kms
2. Through Domlur-Corporation-Mysore Road - 29 kms
3. Through ORR, Silk Board-BTM-JP Nagar-Nyndahalli-Mysore Road - 32 kms

I usually takes the routes 2 and 3 if starting early and route 1 in the daytime. Hope its not worth taking the NICE road in early morning as we need to travel an extra 12-14 kms(and also we need to pay the toll also ). The timing also will be similar. We can check the traffic tomorrow and take decision on which route to take.

Oh that's nice. Traffic should be less at that time I think. I know the first route and not the others. Will take a call tomorrow morning. Give me a call when you leave home.

I'll see you guys tomorrow morning. I was out the entire day (you will see why tomorrow morning ), so couldn't reply to some of your PMs. Sorry for that.

To remind everyone, the meeting point is NICE road exit, on Mysore road, at 7 AM.

We will depart from the meeting point at 7.30 AM sharp. Anyone joining late after this can catch up with us at Bidadi.

All go-karting / ATV organization plans are in place with myself and Mr. Srinivas of Speedway personally handling the karting and ATV coordination tomorrow.

Jet, Set, Go!!!

P.S - please allow Diesel_convert to lead the way for the breakfast stop when we cross Bidadi town bus stop. He knows exactly which shop we are stopping at (there are 15-20 similar looking ones)

Can someone mark the approximate location of the breakfast place (in Bidadi) on a map so that I can set my satnav easily?

Here it is
http://maps.google.co.in/maps?daddr=...ra=mr&t=m&z=17

You need to follow Diesel_convert from Bidadi town. He will guide us to the exact shop, since there are 15-20 similar looking ones who all sell Thatte idlis.

The directions are a little vague, but for people that need some landmarks here it is anyway!

After bidadi bus stop , look for the second petrol bunk on your left, it is a bp bunk. Go a little further you will see the hotel on your left, it is just before the bank of tranvancore. Not the big hotel after it.
Cheers,
