Home - Harohalli - Thally - Anchetty - Hogenakkal - Kaveripattinam - Krishnagiri - Hosur - Home.

Yet Another Solo Ride.. Started with a plan of a ride in Kanakpura road. At Harohalli, plan changed to track Anchetty 200 route. A delayed breakfast of Lemon Chitranna at Thally.. Weather made me to reach Anchetty way early. Since Hogenakkal was on my list for long time, headed there after a bakery break(A cake and a slice).
By this time sun started burning. Hogenakkal was hot. As I was having no interest visiting any spot there, had a full meals and immediately started. With an immediate140+ m of climb, it seemed I would suffer indigestion as climb ensured least blood supply to stomach. Had a rest of 30+ min after climb and things were normal.
After a time waste in Palacode on a loop on bypass road, I got into Kaveripattinam road on dark.. There appeared in a motorcycle, Dr. Ram, a prof at a college.. He was inspired of my trip and the discussions continued till we reached Krishnagiri.. All the way he was slow, matching my pace.. He gave his bottle of water to refill when I ran out.. He even showed me some small Breakfast Shops where food is tasty and better..
Though I was hungry at Krishnagiri, I wanted to eat at SaravanaBhavan... Those 10 kms were worst - at a snail's pace due to hunger induced weakness.. Had a plate of Chapati and Onion dosa, and a 30 min extra break for digestion -> I was lagging from brevet timing..
Then, to meet the timings, I rushed.. By the time, I reached Attibele, I surpassed minimum timing and got a cushion too..
Always E City to Silkboard is a racing section for me, with different reasons.. This time I was hungry at E city and had no reason to push.. When I thought of taking slow due to weakness, Garmin blinked with low battery.. Ah, got the motivation - Instead of charging, reach end before it dies..
I made it through weakness - Average speed is less than previous attempts, but my log was complete..
