    Default Benellians ride to BR Hills [Survived close falls and fails]

    It has been few months since I had a long ride date with my EVA, so the time has come to take it out for a spin. Though a smaller convoy this time, but i would say it was a well formed group ride with better disciplined. Overall it was a tiring day with around 470KM on the odometer and few gigs of memories left on the disk.

    Its very important not to take your eyes off the road, check the video for fails and falls


    Video Memories from the ride



    Started the journey around 5:45 AM from the Brindavan Motors (Benelli Whitefield showroom) to catch up with more riders on the way. Around six of us gathered at the Kanakpura road exit of Nice road where we head to the first stop for the breakfast.


    Adieu to Ravi

    After having breakfast and adieu to Ravi, rest of us continue our journey to the BR Hills. The forest trail section on the way was the best stretch for sure.

    Lined up for a pose

    We took enough time to click some memories and to take time out under the shades running away from the scorching sun

    The ride is even more cheerful when a photography lover joined the trip to get some candid shots




    To beat the heat

    We had few unlucky moments but thanks to almighty , it was just minor mishaps. We reached the BR hills temple around 11:30AM, parking space was little crowded but free of charge so no trouble whatsoever.



    A momentary stop.


    After spending some time on the top of BR Hills, enjoying the scenery from a bird eye view we decided to go to Talakadu to get some relieve from the heat. We were getting toasted under the sun and specially in the heavy armour jackets.

    We reached the river bed around the 2PM. The lunch was surprisingly good and fresh.




    Traditional way to enjoy a Delicious South Indian meal


    With no spare cloths packed, we decided to dip in the water with our riding pants on The water was at perfect temperature to enjoy a sunny day outside. I wish it was cleaner though with better facilities of changing room and toilets around. Still this place attracts lot of families and group of friends.

    Thanks to all who joined this ride, hope to get together for more rides in future, special thanks to Brindavan Motors for arranging the ride

    Till then adios amigos

    Is this river just near the hills or do we need to ride more??
    I want to visit this place
    Google Maps says it's about 180kms from my place and will take me 4 hrs drive one way
    So I wanted to know about the hills as well as the water fall or bed?
    Is it nearby the hills or do we need to drive more to get over there?

    Hi Anuj
    Its around 1 hour journey for Talakadu for sure.
    Water level was till 6 feets, but not so clear (as its lake not a river)

    The roads were mostly good, so ride was good. Specially the stretch with narrow roads going through the wild stretch (where i posted few pics)
    One suggestion: when we reached the top of the hills, it was hot. Try if u can reach as early morning as possible As its just a view to enjoy, so best weather is plus point
