We've been receiving requests from all your folks to make this happen. Guess what? WE HEARD YOU! This coming Saturday, we're doing something that a lot of us wanted to do. Ride to Nandi and Climb the friggin' hill, twice. Yep, you read that right. and our legs are just as normal as yours. So here is the timeline and schedule: Projected Schedule as below:
1. Silkboard - 5:00AM
2. MG road Metro Station: 5:30 AM
3. Hebbal Circle (Esteem mall) : 6:30 AM (Stop 10 mins for all to join)
4. Border Security Force: 7:15 AM
5. Airport Tollgate: 8:00 AM (Stop 10 mins for all to join)
6. Nandi Base Entrance: 9:30 AM finish the climb once and get down ASAP - Just to do it all over again :D You can expect to reach home by late lunch, say 2ish depending on where you stay and how fast you are. If you're too tired you can quit after just one hill climb.
The return journey will be by the individual pace of the rider. There is no check points / pitstops during the return journey. You have the liberty to take the shortest possible route to reach back home. Maybe you can find a fellow rider who stays close by to your place when we meet on Saturday morning :)
If you're not able to ride anymore, you have to privately hire a transport option to reach your destination. This is an endurance ride, covering about 140kms in one stretch. Please follow group etiquette and ride safe.
