Gurgaon Faridabad highway – make do bike trip

I was supposed to be traveling to Chakrata, Rohru and Chanshal pass this weekend. Supposed to be. Until weather ruined my weekend plan.

I woke up at 4 in the morning so as to leave by 5am for Chakrata. All was good. Bike was ready. Camera was ready. Backpack was ready. Riding gear was ready. I was ready! As soon as I looked out from the balcony to check the mood of weather, my excitement turned into disappointment. Thunderstorms and Rain. Apparently, Rain Gods listened to my Mom’s wishes. Disappointed, I went back to bed. Checked the weather after half an hour, and again after another half an hour. It didn’t improve. Nothing I could do about the “bad” weather and I was in no mood to ride 500+ kms in rain. I slept.

I was at my Gurgaon PG on this Saturday morning from where the plan was to leave for Chakrata directly without going via my home at Shahdara. After a couple of hours, the weather cleared a bit but I had lost the precious early morning hours and the weather report wasn’t looking good either.

With the plan ruined, it was time to instead go home. But I couldn’t just sit home all day. And so, planned a make-do trip via Gurgaon-Faridabad highway tracing the Gurgaon – Faridabad – Shahdara semi circle around Delhi instead of my usual route, that is, tracing the diameter via center of Delhi.

Gurgaon Faridabad highway is a good road for early morning rides!







Chanshal pass still remains in my to-do list.
