It’s time again to celebrate the joy of cycling. This month we are taking some history lessons with cycling.
Let’s ride towards one of the less famous towers of Kempegowda in Gavipuram Guttahalli. The tower is on a small hillock overlooking the Kembambudhi lake. If on time, we can view a beautiful sunset and move on the the Gavi Gangadhareshwara Cave temple.
Both the tower and the temple were built by Kempe Gowda referred to as the founding father of Bangalore.
We will be ending the ride at the VV Puram – Food Street and indulge in some carb loading.

A very happy new year to all cyclists!

What better way to start this year’s critical mass rides than by being part of a documentary on Climate Change Mitigation. ‘Agents of Change’ is one of the short movies being made under the UK Environment Film Fellowships 2010. You are not just cyclists, you are agents of change. This documentary might be aired on Nat Geo, Discovery and the like.

Please participate in large numbers – we are trying to get some bikes for rent. Please confirm with Rakesh (9 double8 six zero seven 55 seven 5) of Track and Trail before Wednesday – 27th Jan – if you are interested in renting a bike.
We also have a handful of CM T-shirts available at Rs. 185, so please book early.

It is really funny that some of our malls and the bazaars have parking space for cars but cannot accomodate cycles in their parking lots. So, itz time to gather some mass at these malls and create some fuss.

So, here we go with our CMR for October –
Starting point : Bangalore Press Club, Cubbon park
Date: 31st October, Saturday
Time: 4:30 pm
Final destination: Forum Mall & Big Bazaar, Koramangala
Route: We’ll figure out before we start, as usual – very well planned 😉

The plan is to go to forum and big bazaar and try and shop – but before we do that, we need to park our cycles. And to our surprise, we find that we cannot park our ‘vehicles’ there – so what do we do now? We go in and write a suggestion – each one of us – for cycle parking. Since we somehow anticipated this, we also carry with us nice little posters and letters to give to the management.

Folks staying near Koramangala, do join us at forum at around 5:30 if you cannot join us at Cubbon park.

If you know of any other places where cycle parking is allowed/NOT allowed, please do update this link.

See you all at forum this weekend.
