Cycle of Change : Video Coverage on CNN IBN

Kiruba has a more detailed write up on his blog of what the plans are.
Currently there are two sets of bikers - one in Chennai and the other in Bangalore who are looking to accomplish something small in 4 weeks. We are supposed to document the whole process on tape so that CNN can show this as a part of their citizen journalist show.

In Chennai - these guys are looking to organize a bike to work day and maybe have a bike race in January
in Bangalore - we are looking to introduce bike parking stands in the city.

Dunno what the status quo is with the various groups. But been so freaking busy that I have had no time to do anything for this at all. Very sad. Would have very much liked to have contribute more than what I currently am.

Ah nice.

Would be good if you could try and speak to BBMP for installing them at the bus-stops. It will be really good :-)

YUp. Good idea.
We need to get some influence so that we can put a toe in, else it will be much more difficult or we will face much more resistance.

or

Need a different approach.

Also, can I join in? I am afraid that in my area I am in a total minority, though everyone in my neighbourhood is familiar with the sight of me on my LRT...
