Winter Ride

2014 was an incredible year for me. I travelled a lot. I decided to end this year with another ride with some fellow bikers. This was a 4-day ride in which I covered Mudigere, Kudremukh, Sringeri, Agumbe, Chikmanglur and Mullayangiri.

We rode on the first day to Mudigere. A home stay was arranged for stay. It was a very secluded place and it took us a while to locate the place.

Breakfast break

We went to a sun set point to spend the evening.

Next day I left for Sringeri for another solo ride. The roads were not very good. However Kudremukh forests were particularly very scenic to ride on.

Almost dried Bhadra river

Inside Kudremukh saw a sign board for a dam, so decided to check it out 🙂 It looked more like a desert than dam at this point since the river had dried.


A little more chrome?

Kadambi waterfall

Reached Agumbe sunset point around 3:45 pm. It was extremely crowded so I decided to head back to Sringeri and find a stay.

Sringeri – Chikmanglur

Condition of road was pretty bad at the start. I had started around 6:30 am. It was extremely foggy. At one point I felt like I should head back to the hotel. Once the sun was out fog went away and the roads improved.

Headed back to Bangalore next day. Reached 1000 km on odo somewhere on NICE road.
