Makalidurga is a renowned trekking location with the remnants of an ancient temple and fort perched atop a hill. It is 60 kilometers north of Bangalore and 15 kilometers downhill after Doddaballapura. A cycling excursion to Makalidurga might be thrilling both in terms of adventure and spirituality. Highways (NH44), rocky roads, inclines, downhills, picturesque routes, villages, lakes, and temples are all part of the route from Esteem mall (Hebbal, Bangalore). A group of more than 30 Bengaluru Cycling Club riders rode to the base of Makalidurga, conversing, laughing, discovering, and enjoying every moment of the adventure, including the challenging climbs on the way back. To stay hydrated, riders should stop at small cafes along the way for tea, coffee, juices, and tender coconut water.
