Recently, our Adventure Club organized a bike trip along the Himavad Gopalaswamy Betta, the highest peak in Bandipur district.
Needless to say, the adventure-lovers were thrilled. We quickly filled up all the spots on first-come-first-serve basis and due to the high demand, had to arrange for extras.
Lovely weather on the D-day
Thirty of us gathered at the Myntra’s AKR office at 6 AM. It was a beautiful, and a somewhat nippy morning. Being a cloudy day, it was quite favourable to our bikers. We spotted Royal Enfield, KTM Duke, KTM RC, and a few pulsars.
A delightful surprise by Roadster!
All geared up for the day ahead, we couldn’t help being pleasantly surprised when we were gifted a jersey each sponsored by Roadster, Myntra’s inhouse Fashion Brand. What a wonderful way to start the day!
Sightseeing and stopovers on the way
We took regular breaks but the major ones were at Bidadi where we stopped for a sumptuous Karnataka-style breakfast and Nanjanagudu for a delicious lunch. From sunflower fields to charming little houses, we passed by some of the loveliest sights.
On reaching the peak
It was cold and windy at the peak but we had our toasty jerseys to keep us comfy! Exhilaration was at an all time high now, and we just went trigger happy with our cameras.
All in all, we had a blast to say the least. This was the first long distance bike trip for many of us and pepped us up enough to look forward to more such events in the future.
