April 12th 2014, we’ll be organizing a night brevet to Mandya. This is the 1st time we are organizing a brevet that is almost entirely in the night. The idea is to have you ride 200km on fresh legs.
The route is Bangalore – Mandya – Bangalore on the state highway that goes via Ramnagara – Maddur. More details to follow
The ride starts at 20:00 and ends at 9:30 am the next day morning.
There was a mugging incident in our last brevet. So I wish to re-emphasize that Brevets are 100% self supported ride. and yes we cannot prevent these incidents 100%, You are advised to ride in a group, especially on the outskirts of towns.
There will be a patrol vehicle of some sorts — the exact details have not been worked out, but please understand that it is not possible to follow every rider.
Another important aspect is that we will not let any rider ride unless we have convinced that the front head lights are strong enough and the rear light and reflective jacket good enough and visible enough. This is also for your information.
