Full moon night Ride to Deccan Trails, Vikarabad

Ok, this ride is not on the full moon, but what the heck. Its just a day before ,and the moon won't be any less brightersmile. We will start Friday midnight from hyderabad and ride to Vikarabad via Shankarpally-Navapet-Vikarabad to Deccan Trails Resort. The distance to the Deccan Trails is around 80km from our meeting point at Gachibowli stadium. The route is very scenic and goes through some small villages and farm lands. For guys who have done this last year,this is the same route . We should be reaching Vikarabad early in the morning on Saturday, and spend the day there. At evening, we will try exploring the hills of ananthgiri on bike. We will start back from Deccan trails saturday early in the morning, and come via Chevala.

This ride might take 6 hours due to hilly terrain.

    Great Ride. The climbs on the way to vikarabad conspired with the head winds to test our legs. Will relish the time spend idling on the machan at Deccan Trails chatting with Saravana, Grish, Kathik and others while enjoying the breeze and the view of the moon lit Ananthgiri forests.
