What looked like a fairly dry morn – it turned out be a lovely fresh day (cal standard) with the sun and the wind being kind on us – it was a fine morning to ride..

Pramod, Aarti, Shubhayan, Vinay, Erik ,Ekta and myself got together bettween 6:15 - 6:45 and hit it off with a slight detour into ballygunj and back to original route on the bypass connector towards salt lake..
(if I go anyone’s name wrong please feel free to correct me – I am usually horrible with names but I really made an effort :)

I personally love the wide roads of bypass and with not much traffic in the morn it was a nice ride to do covering abt 6-8 kms .. Most of us still hungry for more..
Vinay (the other one, I usally don’t refferr to myself this way !! ) How sticky south calcutta was but with the open area and some green along the road – the ealry morning air was much fresher – quite a privilidge in cal I say !!

We wrapped up with some juice back at park circus where rahul joined us and then cycled off to bhawanipur for some chai, discussed some cycle routes and back home.. All riders please feel free to add to this diary..
