  1. City Route VS ORR

    The Drive through the city From Chillies to Gandipet is 28km.
    The Mileage with so many vehicles together would be slow paced ( Read not aggressive ).
    This will decrease the Fuel consumption for me (from 12 kmpl to 14 kmpl).
    Overall I can expect a mileage of 14 in this route consuming 2 Liters of Diesel.
    The Normal time taken in this route will be app. 1hour.
    Formations are not possible in this route for most part.

    Coming to the ORR its a different story.
    The distance from chillies is 63km.
    The normal fuel economy here is around 14 for me.
    The time usually I take from LB Nagar to Gachibowli is 30+ minutes.
    This is with speeds of constant 150+ occasionally hitting 180 ( On Speedo).
    With a group driving at sane speeds of under 100 the mileage will go up all the way to 20-21.
    Which consumes 3 liters of diesel.
    However we can do formations, videos, Pics & what not??
    One need not change the gear for close to 30kms.

    Road quality as reported by Kiran is totally different in these 2 routes.

  2. Probiker / Kiran -- thanks for your updates. Give me some time I shall post the exact route in case some one needs it. However both the groups from gachibowli and LB nagar converge after getting off the exit 17 and on the way to Himayat Sagar. The distance between exit 17 and the himayatsagar bund is close to 1 kms. But since the road on the bund is narrow, you can cross the dam and stop just after the dam.

    I Don't think it is 63 Kms from the way i know through the outer Ring road. I regularly do Nagole to Gachibowli and its about 41 Kms.

    I enter into NG Ranga University from under the PVN rao Express way and there is a 1 Km road (not so good, but not very bad either) through the University and back to a 4 lane smooth road that touches EXIT 17 (or 18 not very sure, adjacent to HimayatSagar) on the ORR. Would definitely save a lot of Kms.

    I'll figure out how to insert a pic onto this and will post a google map route of what i am talking abt.

    So my prediction of the distance from Chillies is. 32Kms + (the distance from ORR to Gandipet) i don't think it would be more than 10 Kms. So that would be <45 Kms Max.

    Just saw Shiva's post, if it is Himayat Sagar we are going to. I would say 25 Kms from LB Nagar and thats it.

    And Exit 17 was what i meant in my previous post then. The NG Ranga University Road would directly cut at EXIT 17.

    And here is the Map image of the 1 Km patch + the 4 Lane road to reach exit 17

  10. We still have to decide who all are coming with cars from gachibowli so it would be better we meet after getting out of ORR @ exit 17 so that in case of any delays, the others can directly arrive at gandipet. Let's target between 9:30 and 9:45 am. Shall update the final plan for the gachibowli by tomorrow afternoon.
