Maddur our Paradise , & Kanva well our adda 😛 ha-ha !!! , well not much of writing on this article will just through the events that took place on this trip to Maddur & Kanva on Ashok’s birthday.
Well 26th of April, it was Ashok’s b’day, It was our 10th year together from high school… It was the day he turned 21 years old. It was a Tuesday( which meant all theory classes) , so we thought of bunking after the first two hours and hang out. But after the first two hours the entire class was playing cricket outside (Well that’s mechanical for you ha-ha!!)
I was sitting in the ground , all of a sudden Ashok came sat net to me & asked me whether I could ride to Maddur… Ha-ha !! jumped out of place…ran back home got my bike & we hit the road .
RIDE I : ( Bengaluru – Maddur)
Well Bangalore to Maddur is a Super Duper 4 lane road. It offers one of the best rides aroundBangalore. There were no troubles for Arun & myself who were riding.
(Would like to recall one funny incident which took place on Mysore road… as we were cruising on SH-17… Ashok who was sitting behind me took out a water bottle and drank water , when he was passing it back to Arvi who was sitting behind Arun .. the water splashed all over Arun’s helmet and bike… ha-ha !! we had to stop for a couple of mins )
We cruised through Ramnagara , Chenpatna to reach Maddur McD’s.
TIME:13:15 hrs

Maddur McD’s:
Well it was very hard not to touch Maddur Tiffany’s (our favorite restaurant on SH-17), but this was a different. We sat back relaxed & ate a good meal & fooled around the place bursting balloons by making the birthday boy sit on it ha-ha !!
Finally we decided to go to Kanva from there.

RIDE II : (Maddur-Kanva)
Kanva is about 30-40 kms from Maddur. Again SH-17 excellent road…. It took us steady good riding and yea we had to be awake after that heavy meal , so we rode at a slow pace and finally reached Kanva.
TIME: 14:40hr

Arvind & Ashok took my bike & went to a near by shop to get some Chips & juice at about 2pm , I was the first to jump into the water as I couldn’t take the heat from the sun above our heads, Ashok followed next.
At first Arun & Arvi refused to get down but eventually they were dragged into the chilly waters as well ha-ha!! We just layed down in the water looking at the sky , forgetting about our college totally ha-ha !! 😛
After 1hour 15minutes we got out of the water and took a nap on the shore as our clothes dried up. Wearing back our shoes we left for Bangalore.

RIDE III : (Kanva – Bangalore)

This 50 to 60 kms stretch was just formality, rode non stop at a decent pace to reach back Bangalore safely.
TIME: 17:30hrs
Until next time Cia \m/
