INTRO :
Maddur our Paradise , & Kanva well our adda :P 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.

PLAN:
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 .
TIME:12:00hrs


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.
TIME:14:15hrs


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


KANVA :
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 !! :P
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.
TIME:16:30hrs




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/
