Makalidurga Exploratory

Shaunak and I rode a 150K loop yesterday. Briefly, north all the way to Makalidurga and just a little beyond to Thondeblavi, then west to Alipur and then back south along some village roads, some of which I had already explored.

It was a fun ride. Roads were good for the most part, but really bad in a few places. Scenery was just fantastic, and weather was pleasant. We got soaked in the rain, but the sun came out afterwards and dried us off. I had made a rough cue sheet using Viking and GoogleMaps satellite imagery which turned out to be accurate for the most part, and I was able to navigate the route without even a cyclocomp.

Lots of photos this time around!
