When Royal Enfield One Ride was created all over the country, we without even planning decided to Ride out to Hyderabad for #RT Hyderabad “One Ride” event. Now what is “Royal Enfield One Ride”?
One Ride is One Thought, One Feeling, One passion-Royal Enfield. The FIRST Sunday of April is celebrated as the Royal Enfield ONE RIDE all over the world.
Passion for Riding and Photography has always pushed me to the extreme limits of life. This month of the year most of the places weather is supposed to be Hot and it was very Hot in Hyderabad. A bunch of 3 and each one of us are crazy…..so decided to ride out to Hyderabad and out of the 3 one was the founder of Road Thrill community for riding passion not for any specific bike club as such. Meet, Travel and Discover is the theme of this community, this has got all the passionate rider’s in one roof…..it does not matter what bike you ride, with whom you ride etc., it is only the brotherhood that matters. Now this community has started in different cities and one of those in Hyderabad had started now and wanted to reach out and help them form. So me, Dinesh and Jacinth decided to do the Royal Enfield One Ride there.
We started our ride to Hyderabad at 1am on the 1st April 2017 it was a decent weather and Bangalore traffic as usual was crowded for weekend rush. We rode in the night to make sure we don’t get hit by heat waves as much as possible, but after 3am is when we feel sleepy as it is supposed to be the deep sleep of a human body. We tried many ways to keep ourselves awake and reached Kurnool by 7am and stopped for breakfast. From Breakfast place our destination was 180kms+, we reached Hyderabad by 10am, but traffic was very bad and took almost 3 hours to reach our destination.

We reached the apartment had lunch and just crashed. We stayed in our RT crew member’s apartment, got up at around 5:30pm and see a lot of messages from our Brother’s in Hyderabad. Connected with few and they wanted to meet us, so sent them the location and they were pretty much on time.

Heat was kicking in high and we were keeping ourselves hydrated with tender coconut, water and some juice. We reached back to Bangalore around 1pm which was almost 48 hours from the time we left Bangalore. This journey of our ride will never be forgotten and trust me….these are few rides that keep our memories refreshed…. so was this Royal Enfield One Ride.
Bangalore-Hyderabad-Shamirpet Lake-Suchitra Circle-Bangalore- 1300kms in 48hours.
