69) Kanva Reservoir - New beginning/The End: (29/12/2012)


Place: Kanva Reservoir.
Distance: 60 x 2 = 120kms.
Directions: Bangalore - Bidadi - Ramnagra - Kanva.
Participants: Zethu > Sp.
Bikes: Avy > Pulsar.
Previous Chapter: Markonahalli Dam.

IN LESS THAN 50 WORDS:
This was another short run to our beautiful reservoir Kanva to mark the end of a wonderful year “2012”. This was the first run done after entering a new phase of life. I’m sure this chapter will signify either of the two following things, “a new beginning” or “the beginning of the end”.



INTRO & PLAN:
Well as far as the planning goes, it was a phase of sintering., so had to go to a familiar place deep within our mind. So we chose a home away from our home. The ever reliable Zethu was the only one on the confirmed list.



ASSEMBLE:
Yeah i was up at about 05:00, did a few push-ups, sit-ups had a cup of coffee & was all set to go. The meet-up was scheduled at RR Nagar gate entrance. I left my home at about 06:00 & reached the spot in about 15 minutes. Once Zethu arrived, we formally greeted each other and hit the road.
TIME: 06:30

RIDE 1: (Bangalore - Bidadi - Kanva)
This was a good 60kms stretch on the butter-smooth SH-17. The stretch was divided into two segments as we stopped at Bidadi for breakfast. The first 30kms was done without much difficulty as it was pure cruising on the resistance free Mysore Road. We crashed at our regular hotel for some heavy batting.


After the excellent breakfast we rode the next 25-30kms to cruise past Ramnagar & reach the Holy waters of Kanva.
TIME: 08:00

KANVA RESERVOIR:


After parking our bikes, we enjoyed the cool breeze that was being swept of the surface of the icy cold water. Then we took a long walk on the dry shore. We discussed the best chapters of the year 2012. We also decided the future of the M.C as well.
After about 1.25 hours of discussion we decided to leave the wonderful waters.
TIME: 09:15


RIDE 2: (Kanva - Nandu Dhaba - Bangalore)
This i guess was roughly a 45+15kms stretch under the hot sun. But we rode at a decent pace to reach Wonder La., then we pulled over at “Nandini Dhaba” which we renamed as “Nandu Dhaba” which had opened recently then. Made good friends with with the people around as we were sure we would crashing there more often.
TIME: 10:30



After a nice meal & drink we hit the road again. Cruised along the curves of the SH-17 to reach the “JB Split Stop” . We thanked each other for the participating, also we didn’t wish each other a Happy New Year :P., as we were sure that “The Black Saints” would do their best to make it a “Happy” Year.
TIME: 13:00

Until next time Cia \m/
