Picturesque Ride Series: Whisper Valley to Vikarabad Forest

Dear Friends

We are happy to announce yet another exciting, highly supported Signature Ride from Hyderabad to Vikarabad forest. This is part of our Picturesque Ride Series and organized in association with Andhra Pradesh Tourism Development Corporation ( APTDC). As you all know we have been organizing these rides involving long distance cycling in lush green environs for two days with night stay these years. In the past two years our riders en-massed rich riding experiences two times each in Maredmilly, East Godavari District and Anantagiri Hills in Visakhapatnam district.

Rest assured, this ride will be the most enjoyable way to experience the beauty of the picturesque route to Anantagiri Hills. We are taking a lot of care to ensure the safety and comfort of our riders. This support will include a sag wagon.

Anantagiri Forest near Vikarabad, a decent destination to Nature Lovers covering two days with night stay. The Ride starts sharp 6.00 AM on the morning of Saturday i.e.,[masked] from Whisper Valley, Gatchibowli. The group reaches Anantagiri, which is around 80kms from Hyderabad riding via Moinabad and Chevalla. The link to the route map is here:

http://runkeeper.com/user/Musunuri/route/1918717

The group is expected to reach Anantagiri by 9.30 AM. We will have breakfast and Lunch at the Resort of APTDC where we will be spending the night. At 3.00 PM same day an off-road ride into the forest is planned with a guide support. On return in the evening Dinner is organized in the resort and then the individuals retire to the cozy comforts. The accommodation is arranged in the rooms available in the resort for the participants on twin sharing basis.

The day two starts after having a sumptuous breakfast and the group starts riding back at sharp 6.00 AM. We are expected to reach Hyderabad by 9.30 AM. All through the ride we have an expert mechanic's support.

We know the days are becoming hot and we may have to expose ourselves to the rage of the SUN for about two hours max each day. Looking to the rich riding experience we are going to have in Anantagiri Forests, we felt it’s worth bearing a little heat. If Weather Superior permits we may get discount on this and end up riding cool. Hope you would all appreciate and join the ride in big numbers and make it yet another memorable ride of HBC.

Folks, this ride is on individual's contribution basis to meet the trip's expenditure, which is kept by our ride managers at bare minimum to encourage maximum participation. The participation fee is Rs.750/- per participant which is expected to be transferred to the Bank Account as per the details given here on or before the cutoff set here in the meetup i.e.,[masked] at 22.00 hours. Feel free to call on these numbers for further clarifications.

    What can I say...this years most memorable experience and i wondered how such wonderful people like Manohar and Krishna can be together..I guess such is the power of positivity. I am a proud member of HBC. I could make it to Vikarabad but on the return had 3 flat tyres and one detour (by mistake) of 8 km which made me lose a lot of time, so had to get into the truck after 10 km from Chevella. But i am glad there are no aches or pains. Looking forward to many more rides together.
