We're a group of cyclists living in North Bangalore, looking to hit their weekly km goals. Rides will mostly be on tarmac/country roads (no trail rides yet, unfortunately). All skill levels are welcome!
–– Basic Rules ––
– No helmet, no ride, no exceptions! – Front and rear lights mandatory (minimum brightness >= 50 lumens) – High-visibility vest/strap mandatory during night rides – Rider Information Sheet (see below) in your saddle-bag at all times, and on every ride.
–– Ride Types ––
Ride types are divided into pace and distance as follows:
1. Pace (average speed) a. Slow: 15-20km/hr b. Medium: 20-25km/hr c. Fast: 25km/hr
2. Distance a. Short: 20-40 kms b. Medium: 50-80 kms c. Long: >100 kms
Based on this, the Meetup titles will use the following format:
'40 kilometers; Slow Pace' '60 kilometers, Medium pace'

The Rider Information Sheet contains important information about the cyclist which can be useful during emergencies. An example of the sheet can be seen in the gallery of this group. Please fill this (https://goo.gl/forms/iutIDekWGf6Wm9Ko1) form prior to signing up for any rides.
