One year on and the hair is longer, the legs are longer but the seat and helmet still fit so time to get on the road again! This time Rose will be crossing India from the Bay of Bengal to the beaches of Goa. 'India holidays bike!' says Rose so let's go!

Following on from Rose's first adventure aboard the Windrush (see below), her next trip is to cross Cambodia by bicycle!

Sightseeing on the road to Tadipatri

(viewed 1162 times)

After staying in Banaganapalle we carried on south west towards Tadipatri on a road skirting the Erramala range of hills. We chose this road as it passed some famous caves at a place called Bellum. We visited the caves but not the full 3km of tunnels as it was pretty sweaty down there. The caves were beautifully lit with LED ribbons set into the smooth ceilings. Even down the caves we could not escape the press and were questioned by our fourth reporter of the day and eighth of the trip!

Very different landscape today; dry, dusty and we cycled through a vast slate and granite mining area. We all enjoyed a long downhill towards town, even impressing the truck drivers we outran, Jon registered 52kmph!!

It's worth noting that alcohol is not readily available in the areas we're passint through, but Tadipatri is a reasonably big place on the train line and, having installed ourselves in the only hotel in town, enjoyed a well-earned beer.
