Day 1 To the Hoysala Empire
Mysuru – Hassan
119 kms | 1082M+ | 884M-

Dec 11 – It’s a Sunday! and that means you need not fight for road space with the daily commuter <sigh!>

Hop on you bike and join the Paddy express! Day 1 is all about getting into the right groove or should we say cadence.. While we have some serious climbs on the tour, we leave them for other days. Let’s take it a bit easy and pedal through the wind swept plains flanked with paddy and sugarcane fields fed by the mighty river Kaveri. Cross over the river overlooking the KRS dam and the KRS Back Waters. Stop over at the many little villages to sip of some fresh tender coconut or bite into some fresh cucumbers. On this flatish terrain we ride 119 km passing through KR Nagara, Holenarsipura to reach Hassan.

Foodie tip: Try out the humble Raggi Mudde with mutton or lentil saaru to get a taste of some hyper local cuisine.

Number crunching : 119 km with 1082 m in total climbs and 884 m of total descent. Mysuru is at 755m, Hassan is at 950m. Highest point on the route is 978m
