Comments from New GGI members:
Today was my first cycling experience with you guys in Bangalore. It was great cycling trip to cubbon park and cycling in the city of Bangalore by spreading the massage of GO GREEN GO CYCLING.

I browsed through the sites of a lot of cycling groups before I zeroed on GGI. A colleague's passing suggestion about GGI got me completely hooked. Eighteen months of cycling on
Bangalore roads and my overflowing inbox with updates from GGI, got me curious and pushed me to actually go on the weekend ride. I had done a lot of impromptu rides with my friends but nothing like the Sunday one which was my first ride with GGI folks.
The Sunday ride turned out to be a lot of fun and surpassed my expectations. Initially, I was very apprehensive of participating in the weekend ride and was very doubtful about my ability to complete the circuit. The GGI folks turned out to be cool and chilled irrespective of their age. The enthusiasm was contagious and all my doubts [infact the thought of not completing the ride] flew outside the window. The mix of people and their willingness to share cycling gyaan is awesome. I am completely sold on the idea of taking cycling as a serious hobby. I am looking forward to a lot of fun times [with a message to give out to the society too] with GGI!
Way to go guys!......Cheers, Sowmya
