Ride to Manchanabele Dam with Bengaluru Riders and Motovloggers
This time we traveled to the nearest place, Manchanabele Dam which is between Kengeri and Bidadi. From Bangalore, it is just 45kms. A good one day trip from Bangalore.
Manchinabele Dam is in Magadi taluk, Ramanagara District, Karnataka. Dam is built across the Arkavathi River. Located 40kms from Bangalore. A very good relaxing location and a good view as we get down from the road. This place is also good for trekking and boating. Post monsoon is the best time to visit.
Plan n Ride
Our first plan was to meet up at Airlines Hotel near MG Road at 9 AM. I left a home bit late so could not make up to meet them at the hotel. So straight away I went to Mysore road and then to the cross where we have to take diversion I waited for a few minutes then Bengaluru Rider joined me. So we started our ride to reach the destination. From this point, I have captured everything on my action camera. So please do watch the video.
It was inside a village when we took the right turn at Hejjala Road. The road was good with a few good curves till the destination. The surprising thing was the view from the slope. I did not even think that there is a dam near Bengaluru. That moment was seriously surprising 😀
I could not ride at that time, I just hold my bike to see that brilliant view. We could see a road to backwater. We went a little further but security did not allow inside. So we continued on the same road and we saw a bridge, that view was also good. We waited for a few minutes and other bikers also came. We had a chit chat for a few minutes and left. It was a refreshing day out.
