Like all the other rides 'Escapade De Wayand' was the fun filled and eventful. All the 13 members have shown great endurance specially two ladies in the club. 

          As we expected there were some beautiful roads and hairpin curves on the way to Wayanad. Below is a brief ride story.




Day 1

​Start : Bangalore.
Distance : 300 kms
Route : Bangalore - Kanakapura - Gundlupet -Sulthan Batheri.
Destination : Wayanad.


We started early in the morning from the Nice road junction on Kanakapura road. After shake of hands and hugs we started the journey with full spirit. Long stretch of road, tank of fuel was all that we cared about.
It was a hot day indeed to start with but as we crossed the Karnataka-Kerala border weather eased up and all we could see was beautiful, green and exquisite nature.

      We were in the resort by evening and went for a small walk to get the best possible view of the famous Wayanad hairpin curves (Lekkidi View Point). Post that it was the beer and campfire which did the job :-). 



Day 2

         We headed to Edakkal Caves after traditional Kerala style breakfast. Frankly, we did not expect such a huge crowd when we reached the destination and for our surprise there was some VIP for whom all the common people had to wait to get the ticket. We had to drop the trekking to the cave to save time :-(


Our next destination was Karapuzha dam which was 12 Kms away. We did some serious off roading to reach the destination. It was a beautiful spot to take cool pictures and we knew the drill! arranged the bikes, switch
