Just saw a friend tweet about the TCS World 10k course route having been announced. Had some trouble finding a link to the course from the website homepage. Here are the routes for all the race categories of the event. I have shown the open 10k route up there.
No details on the course of the run, as usual. However, this would be more keenly awaited this year because of the massive metro related work happening all over the traditional World 10k routes.
It’s time again to celebrate the joy of cycling. This month we are taking some history lessons with cycling.
Let’s ride towards one of the less famous towers of Kempegowda in Gavipuram Guttahalli. The tower is on a small hillock overlooking the Kembambudhi lake. If on time, we can view a beautiful sunset and move on the the Gavi Gangadhareshwara Cave temple.
Both the tower and the temple were built by Kempe Gowda referred to as the founding father of Bangalore.
We will be ending the ride at the VV Puram – Food Street and indulge in some carb loading.
Really want to attend this. Have to get the final route map though, to make sure we don’t kill ourselves riding all over Bangalore in the middle of the afternoon. Google maps seems to suggest this car route. Distance from Cubbon park seems to be about 6-7 km.
