Rajiv, this actually is at a very very very short distance. Just around 1.5 km after NICE road junction on Kanakpura road you need to take a left and you'll be there. We went there last Saturday only, thanks to google maps, satellite view. BTW, Thattekere was a better place.

Shivanasamudram didn't have much water though. The aim was to enjoy our rides! ;-)

We just went to the view point, spent some 30 min there and returned back to B'lore. And we stopped for a Quad biking on Kanakapura Road which is the actual highlight of the day!

Actually on 2nd thought may be we also can go cycling there Not very far but yeah, I don't like Kanakpura road traffic due to the Metro construction work.

Are you in a weight-loss spree? cycling 32kms one way and 64kms 2way.
For me no issues, If are willing to do even i can accompany you. though it will be a whole new experience for me.

I will join you two on my cycle, but that cycle will have a motor
Raj sir, are you sure it is 32 kms? I think it will be only around 10kms from BG road to Kanakapura road NICE junction.

64kms might be bit too much for me too. From the other thread I thought it's 30-35kms 2way (even that day drive also felt like that much). I'm sure I'll be dead tired by the time we will be back if it's 64kms . Yup, trying to loose some flab and cycling helps, lost 5kgs in 2 months.

BTW, if you check this link, it seems this place will be only 10-12 kms if we take this route. Not sure how the road is after khoday's glass factory..

Sounds good to me, hope it'll be cloudy 7am might still be better, what say? Or my favorite time i.e. evening 4/4.30pm and come back by sunset. I know the road till Anjanapura (point E on the map that I've sent, after that dunno how the road is). Till that place it's an easy ride (easy for me so should be piece of cake for a fit person).
