Default Bangalore to Raichur (North Karnataka) : Route Queries

I am planning a bike ride from Bangalore to Raichur via Anantpur, Gooty, Adoni. Can someone who had done this before provide information on the road conditions especially from Gooty to Raichur?

Planning the return ride from Raichur via Bellary, Challakere, Hiriyur, Tumkur. What is the status of this road? How much time should I consider for the to and from routes considering moderate speeds?

Appreciate if information about fuel stations and eating points is also mentioned when you provide details on the road conditions.

Planning this ride from 24-26 Oct.

The roads are good upto Bellary via Challakere although a 2 lane with frequent humps, Siruguppa to Sindhanur is a rough stretch from but doeable in a bike. The Manvi to Raichur stretch were good till 2 years back not aware of present condition. Bellary will be the ideal pitstop else Challakere town. Some decent eateries are there in Hiriyur on the service road. I had driven to Mantralaya recently, roads are excellent upto Gooty, there onwards take the Adoni-Yemmiganur-Mantralaya-Raichur route. Roads are narrow inside the towns with lot of humps but in good condition.

I think you can do it in 10 hours running time.

Manvi to Raichur was good but bumpy when I traveled some six months back.

Edit: Raichur-Kurnool road via Ieeja was very bad at several places when I did six months back.

My take:

Drive all the way till Gadwal exit on Nh7 (near Sasnool. Yes its Sasnool and not Kurnool). Then its only 63km for the last stretch. This way you reduce all uncertainty to the just one stretch.
This exit is just before the bridge on Krishna.

This is what I mean:

I absolutely agree with this suggestion. Did this just a couple of weeks back. It's by far the best option. While coming back to Bangalore somebody forced me to go via Kurnool (Ieeja route) and it was the worst route I ever drove in my entire life. Please avoid this route at all circumstances.

Thanks.

I agree with ampere whole-heartedly.

I did this few times.Gadwal-Raichur is single road, but not very bad.

Waseem.

Thanks ampere; this is the route I will follow. Guess, I will take to take a gamble on the last stretch of this route. Are there fuel stations spread across this stretch? My bike (N250R) can make about 300 kms on a full tank and hence I will need to refuel at the minimum a couple of times along this journey.

Since its a 4-lane you should have ample options. Kurnool, Ananthpur etc should have options.

Ballari to Adoni road, via Alur, is hopeless. Avoid if possible. Hiriyur to Ballari is anyway a single road. So, why not drive on Bangalore- Hyderabad highway for a longer distance.
