Now that the Anchetty brevet is done and dusted, time to look forward to the master BRM. The Bangalore brevet season is heating up, there will be a bunch of rides through the monsoon, starting with the 5 different rides conducted simultaneously. Given the positive indications of a normal monsoon, get ready for wild and wet rides.

The master BRM is a series of 5 rides all timed to end around the same time. For the past two seasons, Bangalore Brevets has been conducting this ride on the Bangalore – Pune highway. The turn-off point regressively reduces, we turn back at Belgaum for the 1000km ride, and at Sira for the 200km distance. While these rides don’t feature a lot of climbs or descents, given that they are on a regular highway, since they fall bang in the middle of the monsoon, you’ll still have challenges like heat, cold and sometimes very wet conditions. And of course , given the topography, it won’t be a 100% flat ride. And yes, you’ll have your share of headwinds, crosswinds and tailwinds to spice up your ride.

On the 23rd of June, most of the riders will be on the return leg , and as you approach the end control, you’ll encounter a sea of riders converging, making this a rather unique experience, at least locally.
