|Geared up for the Ride!!|
Koppa is a town roughly 125 kms from Manipal ……the road to Koppa passes either through Karkala -Shringeri-Koppa or via Manipal-Parkala-Agumbe-Koppa. Both routes are equally scenic and choice is subjective.
2 days back I got a chance to visit this beautiful place on a bike ride by United Riders (Udupi) which is a Club of Royal Enfield Bikers. As soon as I heard about the place I couldn’t refrain myself and we hit it off on some serious machines.
After reaching Koppa, we first visited the castle of KUVEMPU who is said to be the greatest Kannada poet of all time and only one among 6 Indian poets to be given the prestigious `JNANPITH award`. His house is named KAVIMANE (literally Home of the Poet).
