Out in the Open – Lovely Bike Ride


Thinking back of the 8 months I spent in Bengaluru with my brother, one of the many wonderful moment was that of the Nandi Hill bike ride with his group of friends. Must say, one of the beautiful ones till date, my write-up on #together for Housing.com.

It was suddenly planned ride over and we didn’t think much on what to do and what not to. Nandi Hills and the ride – It was a green signal 🙂 The early morning wake up and the ride was delayed due to some reason (read it as sleep 😛 ) but we managed to start off by 6 from MG Road.

The best part of the ride being the other 2 bikes which accompanied us. Enfield vs The Hunk :D. I know, it’s not even a comparison to make. I duly remember, on the roads towards the airport with not much traffic, the enfields just zoomed away and even though we were clocking around 110-120 kmph ourselves on our Hunk, it just felt like riding a TVS Luna which is going at a speed of  40kmph 😉 At such speed, my brothers hat went for a toss 😛 and he had to walk back almost half a km to go and fetch it amidst the traffic. It was indeed funny.

The bengaluru weather added on the beauty of the trip with all of us literally shivering by the time we reached Nandi Hills. The  tea stop just before the turn towards Nandi hills from the highway with Pancakes was really out of the world. Sometimes, it’s just these small shops which are the ones which serve food with utmost love and care to its customers that it makes it stand out from the rest and also does add-on the flavour somehow.

The only person not shivering and fully energetic even after riding around for 2 hours plus was none other than my HUNK 😛 His body had heated up so badly and he just was not in a mood to cool down despite of my extra efforts. On the other hand there were these 2 royal enfields just laughing away at this poor guy who just could not live up to the name HUNK 🙂 I still have the HUNK with me, even though I rarely get to ride these days and I must say, even though it’s not for the long rides, the comfort that it provides is absolutely classic.

The scenery up there, even though the sun was already up and shining was so mesmerizing and with the cool breeze hitting up on us, it made the visit even more blissful. Sometimes or rather most of the times I must say, we tend to indulge ourselves into all the fake things surrounding us that we forget to enjoy the real beauty of nature.

Its been over 2 years now since that trip happened and I just am planning one more around April but this time on a new devil – Pulsar 200 NS 🙂 If the bandwidth of people around you matches well then there is nothing like having a road trip.

Now that you have come so far, do take some time to watch the video below. The music is catchy. –

Cheers,
Muki

  1. Hey Thr,

    Nice blog and Very nicely written. Me and my sister are planning to visit Nandi Hills on our Activa and wondering if you rode there on bike/scooter and if the hill roads are safe to ride there? Did you used to switch off the engine on downhill there on the way back? Also were there any female riders in your group? Need some tips, Thanks, Kusum

    1. Hey Kusum,

      Glad that you liked it 😊

      I had been there over 2.5 years back and yes there was a lady in our group. Roads were fantastic back then and I am sure it will eye same even now.

      Enjoy you ride. Will be fun 😊

      Cheers,
      Muki
