Thally is a beautiful village located in Krishnagiri district of Tamil Nadu. Some cyclists call it the 'The little England of Tamil Nadu!' We start the ride from Silk Board junction and go towards Maralwadi Dam, passing some very scenic hillocks. One side is surrounded by the very green and picturesque Bannerghatta Forest. Its a rolling terrain for the first half until we zoom downhill and reach the Maralwadi Dam. Post that, it's a climber's paradise; it is a steady climb for the next 15-17 km.
