Say Hello To Chirping Birds & Fresh Air At These Cycling Trails In The City
Pala Pitta Cycling Park
A reserved forest hat has been developed into a cycling park by Telangana State Forest Development Corporation, Pala Pitta Cycling Park in Kondapur is where you can cycle down like a pro. The park has a 3KM cycling track and around 7,500 trees along with lots of birds. Say hello to peacocks and egrets that lurk around the pond, but also watch out for those pesky reptiles that pop out of nowhere. On the weekends, this park hosts cycling competitions too. Also, you can rent bicycles at the entry gate.
If you've driven past Biodiversity Park in Hitech City and haven't visited it, it's about time. This 13-acre park is home to hundreds of species of plants and birds. With an elaborate trail for both running and cycling, this urban lung space is literally the best thing you could ask for in the IT corridor. But what makes this park super cool is that all trees represent a U.N country like India, Australia, Bhutan, Iceland, Colombia, etc, and a few of these were planted by a scientist who's a part of the council.
Now here's something for adventure enthusiasts! WallRide Park on Chevalla Road is where you can go BMX cycling. And the park also takes cycling classes and lets you rents cycles. Designed especially for sports and adventure enthusiasts, this park has an Asphalt pump-track. Whether you'd like to ride it like a serial chiller or go stunting on those beautiful tracks, do note that it's super safe.
Nehru Zoological Park
Did you know you could ride a bicycle at Nehru Zoological Park? Whether you've got a cycle of your own or planning to rent one (at zoo's entry gate) — you'll have a great time because you'll spot animals, birds, and lots of greenery. Perhaps, you'll make it a monthly ritual too. You can pack a picnic and ride your cycle throughout the zoo and explore the different areas of it, including the Butterfly Park, Jurassic Park, etc. Sounds like a plan, isn't it?
Secunderabad Cantonment Area
Secunderabad Cantonment Area is so well-maintained and beautiful that you won't miss your cycling rituals here. Since it's located in the military area, certain parts of it are restricted. But if you're looking for some solitude while you ride your bike, this is where you can head. Also, there are lots of trees and we love that they form a canopy over our heads.
At Botanical Gardens in Kondapur, you'll say hello to sprawling meadows, gazebos, rocky formations, and plenty of flora and fauna. A well-defined path for cycling and jogging awaits you. Spread across a 120-acre area of land in the Kothaguda Reserve Forest, this park is said to have nearly 600 species of plants. You can ride your bike around the trail and chill on the lawns, if you'd like to get some rest later. Also, all the trees here come with name plates for visitors to understand the details of the trees.
