Route: Koramangala – Sarjapura – Bagalur – Jain Farms
Distance – 72kms
A proposed trip by Anita for cycling to Jain Farms near Hosur in TamilNadu. It looked to be a short ride but finally turned out to be 72kms from my place. At Koramangala three of us met up in the morning to proceed to next meeting point @ Sarjapur Wipro Office. Another 5more joined us over there and by 6:15am we were off pedaling towards Jain Farms. The motivation was a breakfast at Jain Farms and it was by no means a disappointment.
Two from the group pedaled at good speed while rest of the group went leisurely. We had biscuits and stopped at times for general break and also for a tea break. Finally we reached Jain Farms a distance of about 30kms from Sarjapur Wipro Office by 8:30am.
Some more restful moments, guided tour around the farm, checking out pottery and killi josiyam (parrot astrology), we headed back to Koramangala starting at 12:30pm. We had to face heavy winds and good slopes making it difficult to cycle fast. And regular stops to relax tired muscles. When we reached starting point at Koramangala it was 3:00pm.
