Biking Tours Around Bangalore
By Viator, October 2013
Located on the eastern city limits, Whitefield is a former village which has grown in recent years to become one of the nerve centers of the city’s IT industry. Once beyond the modern “tech parks”, roads give way to red-earth paths which pass through country landscapes of small farms and villages, offering glimpses of rural life.
A bike ride along the idyllic tree-lined country roads of Hessarghatta is a wonderful way to experience the rustic beauty of rural village life. Passing a man-made reservoir and farms along the way, the road eventually leads to the Nrityagram Dance Village where dancers train and perform the classical Indian dance of Odissi on this tranquil and leafy campus.
Just north of Bangalore is the stunning landscape of granite hills rising up from the lush earth. A ride through the forests up to the Nandi Hills is a challenging but rewarding experience, especially with the arresting view waiting for you at the top.
