Recommended Posts

Got very confused where to park my write-up. So keeping it under travelogue section. Mods please shift it to appropriate thread if required.

 

Where:

Pala-Pitta Cycling Track, Opposite Botanical Garden, Kondapur, Hyderabad

 

Why:

To get some fresh air, morning breeze!

 

Timing:

Weekend- Morning 6 to 12 & afternoon 3 to 6 PM.

Weekdays- Morning 6 to 10 & afternoon 4 to 6 PM.

 

Pricing:

For adult it’s Rs 50 (One visit, hourly) & monthly Rs 800 if you want cycle on rent along with the park. But If you own a cycle, then Rs 25(hourly) & Rs 400 respectively for one visit & monthly. Please see an image below (though “hourly” not mentioned but the tariff is on hourly basis)

 

Payment:

Cash/Paytm.

 

Parking:

2 wheeler parking is just in front of the main gate. 4 wheels can park their vehicles just few meters before the entrance gate, if coming from Kondapur. Below picture is for reference:

Safety gear etc.:

i)   Helmets are available there, you can pick for yourself. They will not give you (as usual casual approach for safety).

ii)  Basic first aid kit is available at the counter.

iii) No bottle holder in the cycles on rent. However you can take your own water bottle to keep it in the payment counter to have a sip while retuning the cycle.

iv) Toilet facility is available  

v)  No eateries are available till date for breakfast or evening snacks

 

“Hey there’s a cycling park near botanical garden, should we try in tomorrow morning?" – My wife told saturday evening. Cycling or any sort of sport activity is always my cup of tea. Also I can have a small morning car ride to reach the place :cooler:.. so agreed & plan is all set.

 

Woke up around 6 in the morning to reach the place at least by 7 O’clock. And we took the Gachibowli-Miyapur road. At the botanical garden crossing took the right turn and few meters drive, we found the parking area on the opposite side of the road (opposite to botanical garden main gate). Parked the car & took a walk to reach the place (barely 50-100 meters).

 

As I mentioned, two wheeler can park just in front of the main gate. But 4 wheels please find the parking area just few meters away. Your car will be safe so as our road! Please don’t park your car just like that. Just because its not mentioned where the parking is, does not mean one can park like this. It’s a common sense! Don’t know what gatekeeper or security was upto when these cars were parked here!!

Tariff, Timings, contact numbers:-

Cash counter, cycle shed on the left, just after entrance, people sitting with laptop are collecting fees. After payment, proceed straight to the cycle shed. Choose the cycle & helmet of your choice, show the ticket to the person in charge of the shed while taking out cycle.

Helmet to collect from here:

My wife was taking a sip from the water bottle while I took a snap of our ride of the day!

7.jpg.eb79dadd48a99b8e2b442c3544eae5d7.jpg

Take only left after coming out from the counter...

8.jpg.9ad096e0ab880423b513397369636d5b.jpg

... because most of the track is "one way". Notice many of the visitors are cycling without helmet.

Please follow these basic rules:-

This rule is applicable on road as well:-

10.jpg.b7e9f82d32092104c07eebd63df3d582.jpg

It has some twist & turns to push into those corners :D

Now enjoy some random shots of the cycle park. Please be considerable while taking your snaps. Park the cycle on the left side & yes better not to take if the track is crowded, its better if you take those photos while its relatively free.
