I think kids would love the ride, anyone else wants to bring along, welcome.

Will join at Bellandur Road station, right behind Cisco campus on Outer Ring Road. Here is Bellandur Road station, for those who still don't know :) Plenty of parking space, and idli/coffee available at Hosur station !

May be okay to carry cycle into the empty train. worst case, just come and say hi to us, or try leave your bike locked at the station.

I am planning to join at Bellandur Road

The last time we took the ride, a passenger loaded a scooter into the luggage section, in Hosur. So, taking along a bicycle should not be a problem, even in the passenger section, since it's largely empty (unless it's since become popular because of the PRAJA exposure :))) ).

But, if the Heelalige station platform is low, as I suspect it is, then you may require help hauling the bicycle in. I am sure the PRAJA lot will be glad to lend a hand.

My joining not sure - if I get into the mood, I'll come in at Karmelram.

 Sorry, It seems I will not be able to make it this time, as sudden change in schedules.
