Enjoy a scenic bicycle ride on country roads, either side of Kanakapura Road, on the outskirts of Bangalore. You will hop across a dozen lakes and reservoirs that are set against a backdrop of rolling hills, on the fringes of the Bannerghatta National Park and the Ragihalli State Forest. In addition to stopping at and taking in views of these scenic water bodies, get a glimpse of the rural and semi-rural life as you pass through these villages. While cattle and their herders shuttle on dirt roads flanked by fields, orchards, and plantations, flocks of birds hang out on grasslands and backwaters. Given the undulating terrain in the region, you can expect challenges in the means of short and sweet ascents, and exhilarating descents. You can choose the easier L1 route as well.

Itinerary 

  • Meet at The C@fe (near Art of Living ashram), by 6:30 AM
  • Gather with fellow riders for rental bike assignments and a ride briefing by the organisers
  • Hop on your bicycle and head out with your guide, based on your choice of difficulty level
    Level-1 (L1) – Distance: 25 kms; Cumulative elevation gain: 200 m
    Level-2 (L2) – Distance: 40 kms; Cumulative elevation gain: 400 m
  • Ride on mixed-surface routes that weave through this interesting landscape over the course of a few hours. Making your way from one lesser-known lake to another, you will realise why this region is popular for its greenery.
  • Return to your meeting point by 10/11 AM, and disperse
