Remembering Challakere 400

Remembering my first 400 ride two years after, my debut DNF..
The road to the future, discovered via cycling three years ago. Well, the future is always interesting and meanders all the way. And when we reminisce the past as FB did for me today, they are wonderful memories. This was my second brevet (400km), my first night ride, where I enjoyed gazing up the stars lying down on a bench outside a closed tea shop on Tumkur highway at 1AM. A feeble headlight, a bad stretch, slower riding speed , night puncture and incorrect use of cycling shorts resulted in the DNF. But the gazing at the stars on a cool night while relaxing on the bench is still vivid. I have gone many times on the highway later, never been able to spot this bench!
