|On Malpe Beach|
I should appreciate Chandru will power and congratulate him for successfully completing this ride. He is the person neither tried any MTB cycle before this nor peddled before a long time. Just I gave him an option and he was ready with full spirit. The challenge was getting a good bicycle for him, hired a bike and set ready to be on road.

Chandru arranged the rented bicycle from Malleshwaram and reached directly to Majestic bus stand. I reached all the way from RR Nagar. The bus was scheduled at 11 pm, without any issues we loaded our bikes in luggage compartment, the journey went well.
Reached the Shivamogga bus stand around 5.15 am. Quickly unloaded our bikes and assembled the front wheel. We decided to finish the morning core job at bus stand.

We skipped the lunch, both did not feel hungry. Searched a good 3 star hotel for dinner, finished the tasty food and boarded the bus at Manipal back to Bengaluru.
