Candle March Ride...

Originally uploaded by Mumbai-bikers
Following the terrorist attack on Mumbai, We deiced to drop the plan of Critical Mass Mumbai ride.

We decided to meet on a Sunday and decide the next CM plan. Sorry for not inviting others, as this was sudden.

Meet point was Aarey colony at 7 am.

People who joined for the ride were, Raksha, Seema, Manish, Ashok, Prakrit,

Balram, Noel, Akshay, Kunal, Praneti and two friends forgot their name, and me.

It was a pleasant morning in areay colony; we decided up on the normal route what we ride. However after reaching half way Manish suggested a new trail(Sun Set point). Very nice place. We were deciding upon the CM plans and strategies about how to make Mumbai free from traffic and other problem. blaw blaw blaw.

Balram suggested of riding till Nariman Point coming Sunday. However some one
From the group murmured of doing the trip today itself; that’s on 30th Nov.

Some how all of us agreed and one of Raksha's friend was attending the peace walk near Taj (Church gate).

So we decided and started riding towards Taj at 9 Am in the morning.

We reached Taj at 11:30 am along with some flowers; distance covered was 44 km.

But unfortunately we couldn't get in the place as people had started creating a mess every where. As you can see in the image. More Images

Cops were asking people to leave the place. But since we were on cycle some cops were kind enough to us and allowed us to stay back. So some of us tried to take the flowers, but again were not allowed :(

Then later on we had a big glass of Sugar Cane juice opp to Taj Hotel.

We agreed to windup for the day. On our way had some heavy snacks, since it was already time to have lunch, and also had to ride back another 40 km.

We opt Harbor line to ride back, as that is much closer as compared to western Mumbai.

A very nice and a long ride after few months.

Cheers to all the three girls for riding along. Keep up the good work.

Next ride National Park (Borivali).
