A Bike Ride from Chennai to Puducherry:-

The bike ride was scenic starting from view of Bay of Bengal, lush green rice fields and fishing villages. Stop at Mutukadu to take pictures of lush green paddy fields which is a rare sight in the East Coast Road. The first place to visit was the awesome ruins of Sadras Dutch Fort – Vengapakkam – ECR
To reach the East Coast Road you have to travel through the Kalpakkam Township. And you will never regret that this stretch will be the best part in your entire travel.
