This ride is ideal for those getting back in the saddle after long and looking to get away to a beautiful place, far removed from the hustle of the city. The ride distance is about 25 km, all of which is on picturesque routes around the Hesaraghatta lake and grasslands, which is a proposed protected biosphere. We'll be doing short stopovers by these expansive grasslands as well as the lake, with myriad species of birds to keep us company. We also give instructions to beginners on how to use geared bicycles.
