Coimbatore Team BHP Drive

The lush hillock of Kovai kutralam played host to the inaugural drive of the Coimbatore T bhp chapter. The rough plan formulated was as follows.

Hi- at 6:30 Perur temple

Drive to Kovai Kutralam with a pit stop for tender coconut/tea.

Reach destination at 8:00 after a 25 km drive.

U turn after photo session.

Breakfast at Madhampatti at 10 am.

Bye- post breakfast.

D Day - 28/08/16

The trio of graaja, asta_la_vista and myself started together past 6 am in a convoy as we live close, the lush green vistas and the rolling fields were a treat to the eyes, the AC switched off and the windows rolled down to take in the fresh air. The trio reached the rendezvous point at Perur temple and vdm295 was already there. Parked the cars along the road side and chatted for sometime waiting for the rest of the troop to join in. Soon the rest of the team rolled in - quicksilver, nskumar with his friend and krishsreedharan in his mighty scorpio. The trip was a go with fuelinjector calling in to say that he would catch up at the pitstop.

The convoy started in single file and though it was a Sunday morning, traffic was conspicuous by its presence and we slowly motored on in single file, finally halting at pit stop one for a quick chai gupshup session. The quick pit stop gradually got extended to a half hour session with the talk ranging from the service intervals of the German marquees to the supercars and souped up cars in Coimbatore, fuelinjector joined in the festivities by this point and the trip continued.

After rolling along for a while we reached the U turn point – the check post at the entrance to Siruvani. As vehicles were not being permitted beyond the checkpost before 10 am, the cars were lined up and the photo session began on the bridge along a small stream, kids from the village fishing with makeshift fishing devices made of cloth and a metal plate.

After yet another chatter session, we reversed out and headed back, the shining sun reminding us that time flies when we are having fun. A spot was marked for another photo shoot, the cars lined up with the background of the majestic hills, the camera set on timer and the moment preserved for eternity.

Hunger reared its head by this time and the convoy headed to madhampatti for a well deserved breakfast of dosa and idlis washed off with filter kapi. Hunger satiated, it was time to head home.

Mission accomplished, the Coimbatore chapter pulled off a pleasant breakfast drive! Here's hoping that this is just the beginning and many more such events follow. Thanks to all the folks who turned up, the enthusiasm showed by you all is what made this happen and looking forwards to more participation from the rest of the folks in the city. Signing off.

The next Team-BHP meet and drive is scheduled on the 9th of October (Sunday) and guys, this time its Valparai.

The Meet and Drive Itinerary is as follows.

06:00 am to 06:30 am - Assemble at Ukkadam (near Old Market).
06:30 am to 06:45 am - Pleasantries.
06:45 am - Start the drive to Pollachi.
07:45 am - Reach Pollachi.
07:45 am to 08:30 am - Breakfast at Pollachi.
08:30 am - Start the drive to Valparai.
10:30 am - Reach Valparai.
11:45 am to 12:00 - Start from Valparai.

The timings after starting from Pollachi to Valparai might differ if we decide to cut-short the drive and turn back half way which we can decide on that day.

I request all Coimbatore BHPians to take part in this meet. Believe me, its going to be one heck of a drive.

Prasanth
