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

  • 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.

What does the DIY Option mean?
Some of our routes are enabled for DIY consumption using a solution that provides virtual guidance and navigation. You will be able to navigate along the same route that we take you on a fixed-departure tour. You will get turn-by-turn navigation and map overlays that show you which are the scenic spots, where to get food and water, where to get emergency support if required, what obstacles are on the course, and which sections are tarmac, gravel, single-track etc. All the information and expertise that we bring with us when we take you on a ride are now available using an app. The information is available when you preview the route on the app as well as when you navigate (using clear and timely audio cues, almost like having a human guide with you!). The DIY experience of a particular tour is available for booking on the tour page itself. You can enjoy these DIY experiences whenever you want, you are not limited by our fixed-departure tour dates. Upon booking, you will be sent the information required to access the routes of the particular experience.
