It was a foggy Saturday AM when we set off with Vasu (our chauffeur) on our road trip to lands end – the ‘South East India’ version of it that is. We have always wanted to make it to Dhanushkodi (mostly for birding) but not on this trip, the timing of it was different. It was about 4 days in August that we could manage as a group and that’s no good time for the birds:( I guess we will be back next time perhaps on two wheels:) for the birds.
We had been on a ride to the close ones on NH 7, NH 4, Hosur Road, Mysore Road and even Shivanasamudra via Kanakapura road. So when we had to decide on another ride for the Sunday AM Roadies, it took more than a few hours to decide on the best option this time.
A few options on whatsapp and the debate on them later, we zeroed in on Mekedatu, more as a compromise.
Indeed one of the best over the last 15 months that I have had my beloved HD Superlow. Plenty educational too……
A combination of health, family constraints and other commitments had mellowed me down on the ride front over the past 3 months and it was indeed a great sense of freedom that I experienced on the road on this trip.
A sunlit saturday of an otherwise rainy summer week in Bangalore! In May!! My better half and her bitter half started off on our road trip on two wheels to one of our all time favorite destinations – a small, quiet place by the banks of river Kaveri – Mathigod. It’s equidistant (almost) between Mysore and Hassan and is in Arkalgud Taluk of Hassan District.
