It was 7.30 in the morning. Me and my friend had left early from Tirupur on a tour covering all the major cities of Kerala. The first place we were hitting was Palakkad. To be honest it was a business trip and thanks to our love for bike rides, we opted to do it on my CBR 250R. So the plan was to finish off our work in Palakkad which is 98 kms from my house and head to Malappuram which is 79 kms from Palakkad. Fortunately, it did'nt take long in Palakkad and we left for Malappuram by 1 pm. After a one and half hour drive, we reached Malappuram. Ramazan was nearing and since Malappuram was a Muslim concentrated area our work had to wait. So, without wasting any more time we decided to leave for the next location in our route which was Kozhikode a.k.a Calicut. It was around 4 pm in the evening and just 57 kms of travel. We reached Calicut in an hour and checked-in into a lodge opposite to KSRTC bus depot. OYO rooms there were kinda expensive. Calicut was a tidy city. Great roads, awesome cafes and a calm beach. We went to the beach for somtime and relaxed ourselves because we were heading faster than our schedule which was a shock to both of us.
