An adventure trip from Bangalore to Vellore

It was my long time plan to ride a bike alone for a long trip with adventure added as well. Yes, an early morning left from Bangalore (Karnataka) to Vellore (Tamilnadu) via Hosur, Krishnagiri, Ambur and Vellore route. It was not hot climate when left the Bangalore and it was not very cold as well that helped me to gear up. However, the journey was all alone from my Bike and had to go for a weekend ride to meet my friends and relatives in Vellore.

There was no issue till Hosur after passing one Tolgate near Electronic city. I had a simple breakfast at Hosur’s one of the medium range Restaurant. I already got some food / water / juice stuff as a backup, though. However, it was my pleasure to taste the food like ‘Highway on my plate’. Yes, I left Hosur after breakfast and short relax. If you are looking for one of the best adventure bike trip then continue to read it.

I crossed around 12kms from Hosur and my bike started to dance and then pick up reduced automatically, I then realized that my bike’s back wheel got punctured and no more normal speed or movement. I had to get down and find the nearest puncture place as my Bike (usually all bikes) has no step tyre/tube. It was my unfortunate that it got puncture where the area was / is like a forest (Hosur to Krishnagiri Highway is generally a forest and elephant roaming area). The second tough issue was hot weather and sunshine toward my bike and my body. No one around except myself, bike, natural atmosphere, and heavy speed buses, cars and trucks passing by.

The third difficulty that I faced was, the road was upward and hard to move bike ahead, and so, I started the bike and changed the first gear and moved slowly by walking along with it. I reached around half kilometer and found two boys were coming toward me. I enquired them about puncture shop nearby and they replied that I had to go back to Hosur (which is around 12kms) and bring some tube solution fellow to solve it. I fed up for a while and keep moving ahead and then found an old man who was coming in front of me and asked him about the same. He said me to go forward around 0.5km where I can find petrol bunk and the guy who solve the puncture issue.

Yes, I struggled a bit and reached the petrol bunk and found a person who assisted me for puncture issue. I spent around half an hour over there just. That was the last issue for the day and moved to my destination with comfort. Yes, only the issue remained same was just hot / sunny till reached the desired location? #BornfortheRoad The journey was freedom, natural and so comfortable to make it as I like without any trouble of adventure trip. This is one of the best countries for adventure destination in the world.
