Independence Day Ride | Ride to Nandi Hills | 70th Independence Day
Independence day Ride! The word “Independence” will explain about freedom. Our freedom fighters struggled a lot for this day. “Thousands laid down their lives so that our country is breathing this day” Never forget their sacrifice. Let us respect them every day, but on this day we must respect them in special.
Freedom in the Mind,
Faith in the words..
Pride in our Souls..
Lets salute the Nation on 70th Independence Day!
This ride is to pay tributes to all those who fought for our freedom. Usually, we ride to hilltop to wave our flat higher. As per my knowledge, there are 3 hills where we can wave our flag higher.
- Nandi Hills
- Shivaganga hill
These three are most visited on Independence day, especially to Nandi hills. We have to trek to shivagange hills but to Nandi hills and Devarayanadurga, we can ride. All three places are amazing. There are many other places too.
This time i rode to Nandi Hills early morning. Left home at 5:00am with full happiness. Tied a flag to my bike’s mirror which was waving all the way. Reached foot hill at 6:30am, from here i saw too many bikers, BTW this was just beginning. As i started uphill i could see more n more bikes. It took 30 min to reach the hill as there was too much of traffic. Especially with cars, up to 3 kms, there was a traffic jam. Happy thing was our bikes can easily reach the top! More then writing here i have recorded the complete footage, please do watch it.
As i reached top i realised that there is no parking space! But no problem, my ride was to respect the Nation and Freedom Fighters. I came back soon. The actual event was at foot hill. There is a restaurant with big parking space for bikers, but that event was at 9:00am. Majority of bikers attended this event that day. I was a bit busy with other works so came back soon. While coming back i could see many biker’s group riding towards Nandi Hills. At that time my action camera’s battery ran out! Still, i tried to cover in mobile but at that time many groups went! I could not meet any one that day. Later rode back to home.
This time i was happy to see more number of bikes doing freedom ride. Lets this Freedom Ride continue every year with more n more bikes. With the average, i could say more than 2500+ bikes visited Nandi Hills that day.
Again wishing you all Happy Independence Day 🙂 Be Good, Do Good n Ride Safe 🙂
