With this blog of mine, I wanted to appeal to our community to save all kinds of finite resources as much as possible. Go-Green Go Cycling is the Quote I am using on this blog to request people to use their bicycles for regular commuting instead of using their Cars/Bikes. U can ensure 1 less Car/Bike on the road that would have contributed for all kinds of pollutions
Pls note : I Have stopped udating this blog and moved on to www.GoGreenGoCycling.org

The GGI-South group of about 15 members started off from the starting point, Reliance Apple Showroom at JP Nagar, at about 6.45 am. Weather was a bit cloudy and but not raining, a very apt weather for a bike ride.
We took the following route - Apple Showroom -> Jayanagar 4th Block -> South End Circle -> Basavanagudi circle (?) -> VV Puram -> Minerva Circle -> JC Road -> Cubbon Park.
We reached Cubbon Park at around 7.30 am. We had two new members, Tarun and Varun (Rajaram's nephews) for today's ride. They happen to be identical twins; the first ever pair of twins in GGI group !! Rao nicknamed as Go Green Twins. Coincidently, one of them had a BTwin Road bike.
Some of members from other areas were already there and more started joining in. We went around Cubbon Park forming a single line/Foil. With more than 30 members present, this looked awesome. We then gathered around Chamrajendara Wodeyar statue for the group photos. Kumaran had come with his hitech camera, and yes, he came on his bike. Within no time, he setup his tripod and the camera on top of it. The number had now swelled to about 40 and therefore, we took some time in arranging ourself. Thanks to Rao for initiating to create the poster, thanks to Kumaran for volunteering for the shoot and thanks to the GGI members for being present there. We took several snaps. The GGI members are really be keen to see how the posters come out. We are working out to come out with Go Green posters which will be displayed in most of the Cycle shops, Schools & College's
After the shoot, we decided to go for the breakfast. Shantu suggested a nearby place, Ranganna hotel, at Sampangiram Nagar. We had Idli, Rice bath, wada and yummy masala dosas.
We finished our breakfast by around 9.15 am after which we headed back. Overall, the overall distance covered was about 24 kms.
