Un-Explored Cycling Routes In Chennai To Burn Those Lockdown Carbs


It’s summer again (not that we might have the full freedom to explore around the world ‘#youknowwhatimean) and it’s time to rejoice the season in the good ol’ fashion ways… I might have something that can help you with it, while also helping you cut down on those pandemic pounds. Here are a few cycling routes that can help you revisit the good ol’ summer ways.

1. Poonamallee To Vengal Forest (35 km One Way)

This might not sound like the regular route, but for people who have their residence in and around Poonamallee can relate to this one. An early morning ride, even in the middle of summer, is quite blissful – with lush greens on either side and a pinch of early morning summer mist to keep you at peace. 

2. Vandalur To Kumizhi Lake (16.9 Kms One Way)

For those on the other side of the city; (somewhere or anywhere near Chengalpattu and its surroundings), Vandalur – Kumizhi Lake could be IT. A highway and a hotspot for cycling enthusiasts, the silence and the everlasting open straights roads is your one-way ticket to a biker’s paradise.

3. Puzhal To Seemavaram Dam (12.1 Kms One Way)

Meanwhile, on the far northern side of the city, there lies a cycling route, one that calls only the toughest and the hardest of the cyclists in the city. The route has its own ‘Mad Max’ vibe but what awaits at the end of the destination is something that would be more than what you expect. 

Without any further ado, just put on your shoes, equip your fitness gear, switch onto Strava and get set for a worthwhile cycling ride.

Wasn’t much of a mainstream list, was it? That is what we do. If you are looking for something more in Chennai to explore, Check This Out: Unusual places to visit in Chennai
