Bangalore woke up to a pleasant weather which graced the riders for the entirety of the event. The event was flagged off by representatives of Indian Terrain and Montra, the 100km race beginning at 6 am and the 50km ride at 6.10 am. The starting point, Ciclo Café – Indiranagar, was abuzz with excitement and collective energy of the riders who were there to ride out, in the wee hours of Sunday morning. After flag-off they rode out towards Hoskote and then onto the Bangalore- Tirupathi highway. The 50 km riders pedalled their way to the 25km mark, on the highway to take a U-turn and ride back, completing a total distance of 50 kms. While the 102-km race went onto the 50km mark and completed the 102km loop back at Ciclo Café. The lovely monsoon-y weather, coupled with a scenic route was a great way to spend a Sunday on the saddle.
