Practice bike ride for Manali -> Leh (2015, June 7th).

Started from Bangalore by 9:45am, left towards Mysore. Road was almost packed. Went to Srirangapatna, and changed route plan to visit ShravanabelagoLa as blr-mys road was not so pleasant for the ride. It turned out to be a very nice decision. The road was good, greenery on the side. Hit Mangalore-> Bangalore highway, reached home back by 4:45pm.

Total distance covered: ~350kms
Time: 7hrs
