Evening bike ride to St. Thomas Mount Chapel, Kudakkachira / Valavoor, Pala. It is very near to this place. I am not sure if the church is permanently closed or it was closed due to locked down. It is at a very remote place and the last 1KM road is very narrow that hardly a… Read More St.Thomas Mount
Found another beautiful Rubber plantation on an evening ride. Have you seen an old one? This is near Poovarany, Pala. The plastic cover is to protect rubber latex from rain water.
An abandoned house in neighbourhood. They were running a small printing press there. I remember going there for binding our school books during childhood.
Did a solo bike ride to Munnar, clocking 400KMs overall. The road is in very good condition from Adimali except few broken patches. I did not stop at the town and drove directly towards Marayoor side, crossing Kannan Devan hills. It is a scenic route with greenery all over the place. Evening I drove towards… Read More Munnar
On a morning ride I found this beautiful view about 10km from my house. Its west facing, so I planned to go again on an evening to see the sunset & I got the second photo. Guess the coconut tree in this picture!

After driving through NH 47 for sometime, I could see the Arabian sea parallel to the road on my right side.

I took Himalayan, Thunderbird, Triumph Street Twin and Interceptor for rent to test drive. Street Twin was the best but at three times the price of Interceptor. Finally chose Interceptor,… Read More Interceptor 650
Birth place of coffee in India – Chikamagalur. It is about 5 hours drive from Bangalore via Hassan. Good choice for a weekend trip, but better if you can spare one more day. We could see many Windmills on the way after Hassan. I always wanted to feel them very close and this time it… Read More Chikmagalur
