Get your share of long-distance cycling as well as birding, with this ride. Indeed, it's two birds with one, err, bicycle.
The Great Hyderabad Bicycling Club is organising a ride to Rampally Cheruvu on 25th September. All the attending members will meet up at the starting point at Apollo Hospitals, Vikrampuri, and the ride starts at 6:00am.
The pond is in a secluded place, and is home for some water birds. The route for the ride is Trimulgherry Cross Roads, Ramakrishnapuram Flyover, Neredmet Cross Roads, Radhika Theatre, ECIL X Roads, Charlapally Industrial Area and Charlapally Village. The return journey will pass through Nagaram, Kushaiguda, ECIL Junction, Ramakrishnapuram Flyover and AOC Swimming Pool, back to Apollo Hospitals, Vikrampuri. The total distance for the ride is 40 km.
Along with a bicycle in good running condition and with perfect brakes, attendees will also need to carry a helmet, drinking water (not less than 2 litres), some snacks, and spare tube/puncture kit.
The Great Hyderabad Bicycling Club was formed by a group of cycling enthusiasts in August 2007, with an intention to meet people, network and have fun. The club organises rides each Wednesday and Saturday morning, and plans occasional multi-day trips throughout the year, to different parts of India. Some members are training to participate in special tours and race events.
