With Silvester J.

Home - Kengeri - 23 kms
Started too late - 3AM with a tired body due to 600 kms of bus travel previous day and two nights of complete sleeplessness. I found out I can't ride till the sun comes out as I was falling asleep on the bike. Once we reached Kengeri, we got into a jeeptruck to mysore - jeeptruck dropped us by 0610 hrs near the palace.

Mysore - Lakkidi - 151 kms
We rode from Mysore to Lakkidi - the start place of brevet. We had a plan of getting into any vehicle if it becomes impossible for me.. Moreover, loose thoughts of myself being attacked by a tiger, stamped by an elephant or crushed by a constrictor / python while going through Bandipur / Muthanga forests were killing me. Weather helped and we reached safe. Surprising, I managed with one 20 min sleep, till the end of this ride.. Got unexpressable anger sometimes when we saw cut trees or people horning / stopping for snaps thereby making disturbance inside forests..
