  • Planning/Discussion : xBhp Interstate Meet 11-13th March '11 - KA/KL/TN

    KA / KL / TN Interstate Meet





    Ok its time we planned for another Interstate meet!

    Date :- Mar 11/12/13

    Destination: Munnar
    Number of Days: 3



    Suggested Routes
    KA, Bangalore
    1. Via Perundurai-Dharapuram-Udumalaipettai : 470 Kms
    2. Via Salem-Dindigul-Bodi : 530 Kms
    3. Via Mysore-Ooty-Comibatore-Pollachi : 500 Kms

    TN, Chennai
    1. Via Trichy-Dindigul-Bodi : 590 Kms
    2. Via Krishnagiri-Salem-Perundurai-Udumalaipettai : 630 Kms
    3. Via Trichy-Karur-Dharapuram-Udumalaipettai : 590 Kms

    TN, Coimbatore
    1. Via Pollachi : 160 Kms
    2. Via Dindigul : 320 Kms

    KL, Kochi
    1. Via Kothamangalam : 130 Kms

    KL, TVM
    1. Via Kothamangalam : 300 Kms
    2. Via Theni-Bodi : 360 Kms



    As I see it, taking the route with the "best" route conditions is the route to take considering the large groups that we are riding in.

    For Bangalore, I am pretty sure its going to be route #2.
    For Chennai, I would suggest route #1.
    For Coimby, its up to you guys the difference in distance is nearly double between the two routes.
    For Kochi, well you guys don't have much of a choice now do you. :
    For TVM, I guess route #1 would be the best coz then you can ride down with the Kochi gang.

    My apologies if I missed out any other city. These are the major cities that I see participation coming in. So if your city is not listed you can maybe plan to sync up with members the city closest to you.

    For chennai guys Route # 1 & 3 are same distance. so if the meeting point is dharapuram, chennai & bangalore guys can meet and we ( coimbatore )also join

    Ride Restrictions :-

    - We will be riding only in Staggered/Single File formation.

    - If this is your first time with us, please don't show us your heroics. Instead see how everyone else is riding.
    - Ensure that you have enough fuel before you start the ride.
    Bangalore Final Route Plan:-

    04:30 - Bangalore to Thoppur A2B - Route! 140 Kms - ETA 07:00 {60 Kmph Avg Speed}

    16:00 - Theni - Munnar - Route! - 100 Kms - ETA 19:00 {30 Kmph Avg Speed}

    Total Travel Time ~ 13.5 Hrs
    Total Travel Distance ~ 535 Kms
    Average Speed ~ 40 Kmph

    Points to Note :

    - The above is a realistic view of our timings. We should try and achieve this as much as possible.
    - The Avg speed is mentioned keeping in mind the traffic conditions and size of the group.
    - If you notice we are taking only 4 odd breaks and yet we are reaching by 7PM.


    Lets be consistent with our riding and try and maintain a decent Avg speed guys! Discipline is KEY!

            I'm happy to join, but I'm doubtful if its more than 400 or 500 kms one way for a two day ride. Especially for a big group, we'll just end up riding up and down. We'll hardly get time to meet everyone.

              Anything in KL is bound to be far for TN guys. Unless everyone is OK with making it a 3 day weekend!

                    as praveen said, for a 2 day ride I would suggest something less than 350kms from each city.

                    places - Horsley hills
                    Yercaud
                    Yelagiri
                    Kolli Hills

                      As decided in the last interstate meet, we are going to meet somewhere in KL for a change.

                      Yercaud is definitely OUT.. Horsely is too far for KL, and Kolli hills is just too boring IMO!

                      PS: This can be made a 3 day ride too.

                            I gave in my vote for Feb - 19/20. It can very much be made a 2 - day meet, but not sure how many will join as it involves bunking a day at office. I might as I have not started my account yet

                            Vaalparai for a huge group, I will not recommend. We just went on a team outing there and cud hardly find places to stay or eat. Very scenic and sparsely populated though. Munnar/Wayanad is definitely the most recommended choice. Ooty is too commercial to even be called a hill - station nowadays!
                            Democracy is when 2 wolves and a sheep meet to decide who is for dinner. Liberty is when the sheep has a gun.

                              Thats quite difficult, unless you plan something in between Dindigal and Madurai!!!
