Cycling up to Ooty via the Killer Kalhatty routeSunday, May 08, 2011
** Reader Alert - This is one of those posts which has no pictures in it just because of the sheer craziness of the ordeal. I was too tired to even close my eyelids, let alone take a photo.
And for the uninitiated, bitten by the biking bug, I bought a brand new Mountain Terrain Bike last month! :)**

The coveted Hairpin bend 1/36, here we cometh!
There we were. What joy I cannot explain for I myself do not understand. We took photos, we rested, we discussed as the light disappeared and the cold started setting in. Three others were still cycling to reach the top. We moved base to wait near a small shop nearby and the shared camaraderie especially after enduring a killing ride or trek is always joyful to say the least. We waited for the three to come and spent some more time in cheerful banter. As I look back, it was a good time.
We trudge. we struggle.
