Bhutan bike ride
I have added few of my photos that was taken during my bike trip to Bhutan.
This ride was again with the Old School Bikers and around 30 of us went. The itenarary was to send our bike to Siliguri and we flew down to Siliguri and picked up our vehicles and rode to Gangtok, Pheuntsholing, Thimpu, Mongar, Samdrup and Guwahati. This was around 2 week trip with a hectic drive of 12 to 15 hrs hrs every day.
“Nothing compares to the simple pleasure of a bike ride”
We reached Puntsholing at aroung 4 pm which was the entry point of Bhutan. It was a nice small town and finished our procedures and started our ride at around 5 30 pm. It was a hectic ride and small roads and deep valley on the side which made our ride even slower.
By morning 1 am we reached a check point 2 hrs before to Thimpu, and there they dint allow us inside due to permit problem. It was sooo cold and all 28 of us shivering in the road and waiting for the permit issue to be solved. And finaly we got green signal to go at 3 30 am and then started our ride and reached Thimpu at 4 am morning, which leaves with a stright 22 hrs of drive in one day.
We all check in and dint get up till next day evening.
