GoGreen Children's day special 14 Nov 2010

Everyone came on time & were waiting for me. Myself along with my family came in by 6-50 am hence started late and reached Cubbon Park Balbhavan by 7-30am  other GGI's were waiting. Totally 39 GGI's participated on Children's day special ride. 

TV9 Media & Samaya were suppose to cover our Special ride who called up & requested us to wait for them. meanhile we saw 2 kids of age 4yrs Pawan & 8y Himsuta came along with their father and were ready to ride along the group. Pawan was always intending to ride with us with his 4 wheeled cycle and when we all restricted him he got annoyed and jumped into the car.. It took lot of time for us to convince him but he was not :) 

Started by 8:05am and reached Huramavu outer Ring Road by 9:10am where Lovedale foundation staff were waiting to show us the route. we had covered almost 11 km & balance 8 more to be covered and took almost 50 min. for some time we felt we were the only people on the road and @ few stretches, it was like off road ride. Everyone of them were eagerly waiting to see the Lovedale foundation main gate :) 

After reaching Lovedale foundation, we had our breakfast. A quiz session was organised and a kid from Lovedale was the Quiz master & GoGreen team was divided into 3 groups and the questions were related to Green & Environment.    Team A scored 9 points, Team b scored 3 points & Team C was the winer with 11 Points. This followed by a dance program on Radha & Gopi Krishna where most of the children from this foundation participated. 

they wanted to show us their new school which was inaugurated on 3rd October 2010 located adjacent to the present location. The whole building was standing on 60 x 80 site with a basement + 3 floors. Very well built taking into the Green aspects into considerations like Using Light as a main source for brighting the places and walls without painting + Rain water harvesting were few important features that we observed..  

Started from Lovedale foundation by 11:40am and reached home by 1-30pm. All in all, everyone enjoyed the long ride which was totally around 58 Km's

Following was the route taken..
