As usual our ride started from South RIS junction @ 6:45am and reached cubbon park central library by 7:15am. after meeting other GGI's from other regions and started towards New BEL Road which was 9km from cubbon park. We reached Janardhan's sir house by 8:15am where he had showed us about his past achievements & medals. offered the group with Tea & biscuits after which we started back. We stopped @ ShathiSagar hotel for breakfast which was sponcered by Srikanth for buying a new Trek 3700 bike.

My cycling advent of 510kms went of successfully. I was
back on W'day at 10.45am. But it was too arduous due to Scorching sun with any
relief from clou ds even for a brief  especially on return trip. I had worn Go
Green T-shirt most of the time and it paid off. Most school going kids were
cheering enroute and at the villages i went. At the village where the function 
was held the sr people wondered and younger ones got much impressed and
inspired. Some even promised to take up to cycling after listening to cycling
experience and its benefits devoid of pollution. I had some hitch in venturing
this trip after 6yr gap ignoring ageing.
