I was following pole after pole while climbing to the top. Poles which are meant to guide me along the often ambiguous path leading to the highest pass in the world, set high mid the Himalayas of Nepal. Winds were dry and cold, apt for a desert set 5000 metres into the sky, my legs […]
My core idea behind the Manali-Leh ride was efficiency. I was looking to choose my luggage, nutrition, cycle and riding gear in a way that I was carrying only what was best and absolutely necessary for the ride. That way, even with my average level of strength and stamina I would be able to complete […]
After my previous cycle ride experiences, where I took the routes from Bhimtal to Munsiyari and Bhimtal to Chopta, I decided to go for a longer, colder route. The route from Shimla to Kaza is a stretch that I have done before on my Royal Enfield Classic 500 and thus I knew what to expect.

To continue our Dam Run for the monsoon of 2016, we head out to two dams on the Gwalior Shivpuri Road. The Kaketo Dam and the Pehsari Dam. As with the first Dam Run, which covered Madikhera, Mohini and Harsi Dam along with Sultangarh waterdall, this ride took us to the two dams following routes […]
Pagara is perhaps our most visited location. We have seen it in summers, winters, mornings, evenings and night, taking in all the shades of this beautiful place. Of course, its vicinity to Gwalior helps in making it a goto choice when it comes to a short enjoyable ride, but its also its being a good […]
