1. Outer Ring Road
This long road stretches from Bellandur (near Silk Board) all the way to the Kempegowda Airport. It is covered in bumper-to-bumper traffic as people commute to the multitude of tech parks that line the ORR. During weekend mornings, however, it turns into a bikers paradise with long straights, gentle curves and an array of flyovers.
2. Inner Ring Road and Indiranagar 100 ft road
For some relaxed riding, head over to Indiranagar 100 ft road via the Inner Ring Road through Koramangala. The IRR is a brilliant stretch of road that connects Koramangala to Indiranagar. The 100 ft road is lined with trees that form a green canopy over the entire stretch. The multiple cafes and food joints in this area make it an ideal choice for a weekend ride.
3. Electronic City Flyover
The 10-km elevated highway is the longest in Bangalore and the second longest in the entire country. The Electronics City’s Hosur Road Flyover is an elevated tollway with four lanes, two in each direction which makes for an amzing riding experience as you can cover the entire stretch without having to stop even once.
4. M.G Road
The beauty of this iconic road and its surrounding streets is lost in the traffic which is prevalent all week long. If you do hit the road early on weekends, however, you’ll see what no one usually has time for. The MG Road boulevard is worth visiting and its a unique experience of being able to cover the whole stretch in the matter of minutes rather than hours.
5. Cubbon Road
Another brilliant road whose beauty is lost due to traffic, Cubbon Road is brilliant for bike rides. Surrounded by towering trees on either side, this road lies in the heart of the city and is on close proximity to the Vidhana Soudha and the Karnataka High Court.
