Those who love riding would tell you that the best way of enjoying two wheels is to make them carve their way through some inviting twisties in the hills. Be it Khardung La or your regular Lonavala-Khandala stretch, riding through the hills is an immensely enjoyable experience. However, it is always trickier and more dangerous than riding on open, wide highways. In this edition of TVS Scooty Zest 110 Get on the Road with Motoroids, we will cover in detail the tips and tricks associated with riding safely in the hills.

Visibility is paramount

Visibility is a key factor in the hills owing to the narrow, mostly undivided roads. Always look in the distance and ensure that you have a fair view of the road ahead as well as the oncoming traffic. Sure, there will be blind corners, but your effort should always be to assimilate as much information about the course ahead in advance as possible. For example, on your way down on switchbacks, a quick glance at the downhill loops will give you a fair idea of the nature of the curves ahead and the oncoming traffic. This information helps you prepare in advance and makes tackling it much easier.
