Assemble your crew here and do a short briefing of the ride. Being a centre point, it makes it accessible to all riders. Do sip on a hot cup of coffee before you kickstart the ride.

Start cruising your machine at comfortable speeds as you will be on the superb NH48. You will be reaching Sriperumbudur via the Poonamallee junction. The famous MMRT race track is located here.

The NH48 becomes better and better as you move away from Chennai. Another 70-odd kilometers of riding and you will reach Ranipet Toll plaza. The roads from here on will have 2 more lanes.

A halt is advisable here as it is almost halfway in the journey. Stop by VIT and have some refreshments, some brief for the next half of the ride ahead as you will be riding up hills. Don’t forget to click some photos with your gang before you head towards Vaniyambadi.

You will cross Pallikonda toll and head towards Vaniyambadi. Right after this juncture, the ghats will begin. There will be a narrow two-lane road for another 6 kilometers, but the good quality of the roads make it a smooth ride.

And the climax begins! A 15 kilometer stretch offers you and your squad a mix of cornering, off-roading and uphill riding. The hairpin bends will delight you and your machine,though it involves a lot of focus.The fun continues till you reach Yelagiri, which will surely remind you of Ooty rather, since it is a mini – Ooty. The serenity, the hills, the chirp of birds and the cool breeze will offer superb company to the sound of your bikes softly ticking in peace. It is a sight to behold!
