A calm and scenic ride through the countryside – once you get out of the city limits; freshly laid tarmac and gradual curves, good descents, minimal traffic and greenery on either side make the ride quite a pleasant one.
The challenging climbs deliver on the “painfully blissful” part of the ride!
The ride rolls thru through village gullies and covers two state forests: Bannerghatta and Ragihalli. Do keep your eyes open around the forest area for a wide variety of birds. We saw plenty of beautiful kingfishers near one of the lakes and could hear peacocks in the distance.
The route covers all sorts of terrain and some challenging climbing with the eye-popping Jigani climb at around the 70 km mark. A fantastic photo opportunity to capture the essence of this ride.
The road through the national park is nice and flowy with a few climbs. You won’t encounter much traffic in this area.
An absolute road bikers paradise!
Segments are one of Strava’s coolest features. They designate specific features or portions of a route – such as a climb, a tricky stretch of trail or part of an open-water swim. Each time you complete a segment, your time is recorded so you can compare it to previous efforts and those of your friends and other athletes.

WHAT I LOVE ABOUT CYCLING
I’m an avid mountain biker and I like riding fast and flowy singletrack. As I keep riding, I continuously work on honing my riding skills. I like to ride whenever possible, especially with friends. I also like to influence folk into getting to ride more often.
Working on bicycles has also been a keen interest of mine for quite some time.
