Our bike ride to Coorg was one of the most unforgettable experiences we had in our entire life. From non-stop rain, to getting lost in the jungle, dark pitch black roads to riding through the hairpin bends, one could not ask for more adventure in a single trip. We had it all, though a bit annoyed at one after one incidents taking toll on us, we are ready to go again without any second thoughts.
