eLocker by VTA and BikeLink

As part of my trip to the Rosicrucian Egyptian Museum, I took the VTA (Valley Transportation Authority) LRT (Light Rail Transit) from the River Oaks station. The River Oaks center at North First street also houses the VTA administrative office. This place is a 20 minutes walk from home and 10 minutes on a bike. VTA provides for bikers to carry their cycles on buses and trains; I haven’t used either yet.

Context : One fine day, I decided to visit this museum. One, because I had been watching some documentaries on Netflix about the history of the Mesopotamian region (East to West). Second, because the museum came up in the nearby places I could explore. And finally, because I really needed to get out of the house.

Project 365 - Day 10

Day 10 - Aug 25: 65.9 kg, Cycling: 38 min, 9.55 km Sandip left early morning. I tried to nap for an hour, but was up by 8 am. Though I was sleep deprived, I wanted to go cycling. The weather was favorable…it wasn’t sunny. So I thought I’ll think no more and will just head out after the maid leaves. Started from home at 9:10 am. I knew I would encounter the Saturday office- hour traffic.

First Ride to Bellandur Lake

Went on a 26 km ride on a self-charted route this Sunday. We could not manage to participate in the GGI CM the previous day, so we decided to make up for it. ![28022010119](/images/2010-03-02-first- ride-via-bellandur- lake-2/4393868487_ca7bfcc813.jpg) You can see the complete description of Sunday’s ride to Bellandur Lake on here. Before Sandip and I started riding cycles this Feb and before we even got our cycles, we had started dreaming and marking out all the roads and areas where we wanted to come on our bikes.
