Practice session - Whitefield - Chikka tirupati - Sarjapur - Whitefield

As part of preparation for long journey went on practice session from Whitefield - Chikka tirupati - Sarjapur & back to Whitefield pedaling a distance of around 45 kms. Started from home at 6.00 a.m. and was back home at 9.00 a.m. I recall, last year, I had gone on the same route along with my friend Karthik and had to gulp in at least a litre of water en route besides having heavy breakfast. However, today I just had a cup of coffee on my way. Not that I did not want to eat any thing. I presume, over the last one year, my body is toned and probably I have gained physical endurance to sustain both thirst and hunger for a longer duration. Hope, this will be a good sign considering my long journey planned ahead in December 2010 from Bangalore to Kanyakumari.

Bangalore to Kanyakumari - December 2010

Preparations are on to pedal from Bangalore to Kanyakumari in second week of December 2010. It will be around 750 kms ride via Krishnagiri-Salem-Karur-Dindigul-Madurai-Kovilapatti-Tirunelveli and Kanyakumari.

Last year I had put new tyres for both the wheels when I went on 1800 kms tour. Those tyres are still going strong after covering almost around 4000 kms. However, I do not want to take chance and shall change the tyres before embarking on my trip to Kanyakumari.
