Next day, my friend and I rented two bicycles to roam around and explore other areas of Hampi. The cycle ride is a joy and you don't need any guide or auto once you start paddling.
You can start cycling from the Virupaksha temple and keep riding on the main road till the town of Kamalapur, which falls on the way to Hosapete. There are many structure and ruins besides this main road, which can be spotted while cycling and you can explore as you go towards Kamalapur.
Kamalapur houses a large museum of Archaeological Survey of India, which served as our last point. After exploring the museum, we had lunch and got back on the road towards Hampi.
