A brand new destination for this Independence Day Celebrations ride!
Date : Aug 12th and 13th
Assembly : 5:00 AM on 12th August
Distance : 1000 Kms (Approx.)
Started Day 1 early, 5.30 AM to be precise.
Since it was a experienced riders pack the coordination was very easy.
Our destination for the day was Kuppali, which was 345 kms away from Bangalore.
Roads were fairly good but there were few bad stretches and narrow ones which really made the ride a little bit challenging. Brijendra on the only Continental GT in the club did extremely well even though his bike was total alien to that sort of terrain.
We took some wrong turns and reached our destination ( Home stay ) by 3 pm, Post lunch we had to take a quick nap before we headed to the destination of the day, Kundhadri Hills. The roads were very inclined and narrower than expected and please be aware that the roads maybe confusing, please download offline maps or keep an eye on the signage boards (Chances are you will miss these boards).
We were back in the rooms by 8 pm after some shopping at Theerthahalli. Dinner was arranged at the Homestay with some traditional dishes.
We slightly changed the plan, changed the destination to Bangalore via the scenic Kuderemukha. This was one of the best choices we have ever made, the roads were stunning with breathtaking view on either side. Just like those cool windows wallpaper :-)
We had a long way to go! We reached the end of beautiful stretch of Kuduremukha at 2 pm ( It takes 1 hour from the entry point and this time is limited ) Be aware that you'll have to pay penalty if you stay more that 1 hour.
Post that we had some lunch and headed towards Bangalore, it was an amazing journey covering 1000+ kms in two days. A big thanks to all the riders who participated and made this a memory to cherish.
