mirik - siliguri - islampur

Yesterday I rode from Mirik down to Siliguri. Today from Siliguri to Islampur. Two very different days.

The ride from Mirik was almost all downhill for the first half of the trip, on the brakes all the time, rough roads and gravel. Spectacular, though, despite clouds obscuring the best views. Then it was level, and busy, into Siliguri. A great day, though.

first real ride in 20 twenty years...

Rode from Darjeeling to Mirik yesterday. Lots of up and down, fortunately more of the down. Feeling weary today but no specific aches and pains. A beautiful ride, through the forest in the clouds. There should have been views of the mountains but the skies don't seem to be clearing this year...

My maiden ride today

I did my maiden ride today from Mulund West Nirmal Lifestyles to Vikhroli East Godrej Junction, a distance of 18kms in 75 minutes along with KD aka Kaustabh Deshmukh who got me into investing into my bike (Scott Aspect 660).

It was I should say it is a good feeling though the legs are aching a bit, but I am looking forward to riding everyday. Cheers
