    Hi Avinash - Do have any planned breaks for breakfast and lunch en route and is there a common meeting point in Mysore so everyone can gather on their arrival (i am sure not all the riders will be riding at the same pace and some will reach ahead of the others). Any help would be appreciated.

    What tentative time will we reach Mysore? Any folks yet for riding back to Bangalore the next day?

    August 21, 2014

    • Nitin C.

      Let me ask the question another way. Do we plan to have predefined break points where the group will meet up in the middle e.g. for lunch?

      August 22, 2014

    • Avinash K.

      No. that will be decided during the ride

    I would like to join for the ride and return on the same day by Bus.. You ppl arrange for bus facility too.?

    Thanks in advance.

    August 21, 2014

    • Avinash K.

      I had a plan to arrange it but unfortunately there are not enough positive response for the same. So each rider have to take a volvo back to bangalore. If any change I will update it here. Keep checking the page

    Regarding option 3 do we have some staying place in mind ?
    I am planning to go with option 3.With next day early morning cycling to Chamundi hills and then return back to Bangalore.

    August 21, 2014

    • Avinash K.

      Awesome choice. But there is no hotel/lodge booked for staying back. As this is just an open ride to Mysore. Riders need to take care of there lodging. Let me see if there are some bike friendly hotel to stay. Will update by tom evening

    Hi Avinash - I am returning the same day by bus. Can you kindly let us know if bus will be arranged for those who want to return the same day. Also, any confirmation on the bike career from Mysore back to Bangalore. Do you have enough numbers to arrange for one.

    August 21, 2014

    • Avinash K.

      Not enough response for bike career. Buses are available from Mysore to Bangalore (Volvo) in which it is safe to carry bikes as well. But max 3 bikes per bus is suggested.
