When Life Was A Picnic

Past Turns Perfect In Bisle Ghat
I love riding bikes, maybe because I never feel bored or tired while riding. I started my bike riding journey in 2009 with a Hero Honda Super Splendor which has now given way to a Avenger 220 Cruise. An average speed of  80-90 kilometres and the required safety gear are my riding benchmarks. Some time back, I chanced upon a meetup of riders to Bisle Ghat in  Sakleshpur.
