Ride date: 27th August 2016
After Bicycle Tour of Shimoga to Udupi on 20th & 21st August 2016, I decided to reduce 2 day events and concentrate on cycling around Namma Bengaluru. Much needed service to my best buddy KHS Alite 500 was done post Bicycle Tours. Installed brand new tires & Breaks. Meanwhile cycling is addicted to me. Thought of early morning rides now on. 26th August 2016 (Friday) – I got my bicycle post service and this Kanakapura ride was planned on 26th August evening and decided to ride till Kanakapura & back on next day that is 27th August Saturday.
Day in brief:
Got up at 4:30 AM and freshen up. Plan was to finish ride by afternoon because cycling distance is around 100 Kms. and ride can be concluded by afternoon. Carried 2 spare tubes as usual in backpack and started ride to Kanakapura at 5:15 AM in the early morning from my house.
Reached Kanakapura road from my house and pedaled till Kanakapura. Took many small breaks en-route and captured some pics too…
Reached Kanakapura around 8:00 AM. Had breakfast at Udupi Upahar, Kanakapura and relaxed for few minutes. After half an hour of break, started return journey around 8:30 AM. Return journey was relaxed one and had multiple breaks for Tea, Tender coconut, etc…
Reached my house around 12:30 PM. It was nearly 100 Kms. of bicycle ride and memorable one!!! Weather was fantastic throughout the ride that made journey memorable one.
Cycling distance covered as per Strava: 106.5 Kms.
