Kick starting the Volunteers thread...

- Last time round the print-out with the registered participants was not sorted by either registration number or name... pre-race confirmation of registration became very difficult as it took a long scan time to identify and tick the names or assign a new number on the spot. So this time round a printout with registered names sorted on registration number will make the pre-race registration confirmation a whole lot easier.
@Vasu - I am assuming you are going to be taking care of getting the print-out's like last last time.

Any nice generic posters for the BBCh races anyone ?

We can print some of these and post it up at various places. That way we dont have to print one every race. We can point to the URL and say its a race every third sunday every month.

Absolutely awesome....... particularly the 'are u evolved enough' one...... But it feels so much more suited for CM.... Probably we should get shirts printed w these and ride the CM

but the title should be Bangalore Bicycle championships and not Bangalore Bikers Club.... And a regular font would be nice instead of the whacko one...

Quick check - make sure you have permissions to use the images you played around with. Please remember depending on the image it  may not be okay to use it without permission. The copyright owner (if any) may not be too happy about it...

The problem part is that its during the same time... i think the deal is to go around to the dealers and filling in forms, doesn't look like cycling to them is mandatory....

Now what... do we shift to Saturday 19th or just go ahead or community votes??

Annjuu, WOW! Such creativity! I am amazed by the people we have in our cycling group. Such +ve energy. AMAZING.

Vivek, I second you. I recently purchased a Bicycle T-Shirt at Decathlon and like the quality. It would be really great if we could get the "Are You Evolved?" picture message printed on such a T-Shirt. I would not mind buying a couple of those goodies.

Thanks,
Yogesh.

Guys, the date change question is not up for voting. We will cause confusion if we change dates. There are people who have read about us in DH and other newspapers. Date change is not happening. Let us just say We are doing it as we had planned!

A BIG HELLO TO ALL!
BBCh 5 is around the corner, and things are falling into place.

I had earlier sent the maps of how to get to the race as well as the
race route itself, but I will re-attach these to this mail just in
case.

A bunch of us a doing a reccee of the entire route tomorrow morning,
and I think it would be a great idea for as many people as possible to
do it. Not just as a reccee, but also because it is a truly fantastic
ride with great roads, no traffic and awesome  scenery. I hope to see
many of you out there tomorrow.
We will be heading out from opposite Columbia Asia
Assembly time 6.15 am
Departure 6.30 am
The route is quite simple to the race start, I can give a small
briefing in the morning, but would recommend that you print out the
maps of the race route itself and carry it with you.

We can ride out in diff groups based on riding speeds etc, team
KYNKYNY Racing (3/5) will be doing a team training, all you other
teams out there, here is a good chance to do the same ;)

A few people have signed up to volunteer - awesome, but it would be
great to have more on board as there will be about 4 stations and it
would be good to have at least 2 people at each.

Below are written directions to the venue and the race route too.

DIRECTIONS TO BBCh 5

1. Set your odos to 0 at Mekhri Circle, and head out towards the Airport.

2. at 8.4 km you will have passed Jakkur Aerodrome on your right and
will reach a traffic light, there will be a Gas station on your left.
You should get onto the service road on the left just before the
traffic light, this road will FORK OFF TO THE LEFT towards Yelahanka
and go through a railway crossing.

3. at 9.2 km you will reach the Yelahanka police station (on your
left) at a traffic junction. TURN LEFT onto the Doddaballapur Road,
and ride on straight.

4. at 18.9 km you will reach a left turn at Rajanakunte Village. Set
your Odos to 0 again (for race route directions) and TURN LEFT. The
actuall start line will be a bout 1 km down this road, away from the
village.

RACE ROUTE DIRECTIONS

1. You have already Zeroed your odo at Rajanakunte Village, ride on
straight and enjoy a truely sensational road!!!

2. at 7.8 km TURN LEFT onto a road with a sign marked "Sperm Bank"!!!!!!!

3. at 13.7 km you will exit the large campus you have been riding
through, keep going straight.

4. at 15.5 km you will be joining another road, TURN RIGHT. Keep going
on this road, you will ride a bit through Hessargatta town, but will
get through it very quick.

5. at 19.75 km you will see a Granite Temple ahead of you on the left,
and a road going off to the right, TURN RIGHT.

6. at 20.7 km there is a road going off to the right, KEEP STRAIGHT,
DO NOT TURN RIGHT. the road surface is not so great here, there a 6
bumpy kms after which it is blissful again ;)

7. at 28 km you will join a main road, TURN LEFT.

8. at 29 km you will reach a T junction with a small circle, TAKE A
U-TURN AROUND THE CIRCLE and head back. You will now stay on this main
road, no turns all the way to the finish line for about 15 km.

9. at 45 km you are the winner if you get there first!!!!!

IMPORTANT, PLEASE NOTE:

Along the road there are a few small villages. Please ride extremely
cautiously through the villages! These people live on the road and it
is as if we are riding through their homes. There are often Kids,
elderly folk and animals crossing the road and we do not want to see
any accidents there.
Let us show the same respect as if we were to literally ride through
someones home. Please slow down in the villages even on Race day, this
is very important, we dont want to be brash, careless city folks to
the villagers, some of us train regularly on this route and have
always shown a lot of respect, kindly maintain this relationship as
you will be representing ALL urban cyclists.

Have an awesome ride yall!!

To that, I say "tough luck" to the RFL hercules whatever thing (what
is it, anyway? some ride?). We shouldn't change dates; this is a 1000-
member 'club' and it should behave that way ;-)

Was an awesome ride this morning, doing the recce. I've haven't done a
more picturesque route, the surface is fantastic. The 6 km you mention
Vivek, is our very own Paris-Roubaix; what bone-rattler!

Yes, it was a lovely ride today.
About 9 or 10 showed up for the reccee and a bunch of us did some nice
pacing, guaranteed fun always :)
A couple of pictures for those who missed it. Make sure you dont miss
next Sunday!
