IN LESS THAN 50 WORDS:
This was another good 200kms ride to celebrate or toad-clown’s birthday - Dattu’s 22nd birthday that it is. A surprise cake cutting & opening of some crowns by the clown made it a wonderful run.
Oh yeah., also this was the first trip of 2013. So a very Happy New Year to All :)
INTRO & PLAN:
Well as far planning goes, the phase was sintering was still in it’s initial stages so this chapter also had to be done at a familiar place. So Maddur & Kanva was chosen. Zethu & Dattu were the only ones on the confirmed list.
Yeah i was at about 05:00. did a few push-ups & sit-ups, then had some coffee. As the meet-up was scheduled at RR Nagar Arch, i left my home at about 06:15 and met them. After a formal greeting, we left Bangalore.
RIDE-1: (Bangalore - Kanva reservoir)
This was a neat 60kms stretch on Mysore Road (SH-17). Being a 4-lane we cruised smoothly without much difficulty. On the way we decided to first visit Kanva & then move on to Maddur.
The waters were good as always. But yeah it was becoming lesser & lesser due to the lack of rains last year. With the cake cut using a our good old camping knife, we celebrated Dattu’s birthday.
Like last time we had Dattu walk back the road one year back and re-collect the most important events that had occurred. After a good one hour & merely being run over by a flock of sheeps we left kanva reservoir.
Maddur is just about 20kms from Kanva. So again switched on our cruising mode & reached there in about 30mins. Entered our regular hotel Tiffany’s for some heavy breakfast. After 30mins of breakfast we left the hotel & ended up at some Dhaba near the hotel itself.
We grabbed a few drinks & sat back watching the vast green grasslands & a train afar roaring across the bridge.
RIDE-2: (Maddur - Bangalore)
This was a 80kms stretch on SH-17, with a couple of breaks. As we left Maddur we sailed along comfortably till Bidadi. We stopped for a small tea break at noon. Then we continued till our ‘JB split Stop’. Pulled over thanked each other for participating & yes wished Dattu again and then finally left back to our respective homes.
Until Next time Cia \m/
