Me and my bicycle is coming to India.
I am right now waiting for my plane to Delhi. From Tuesday next week, I will be undertaking a bicycle trip from Delhi to Kolkata. I plan to spend around 3 weeks on this journey and will stop by places like Agra and Varanasi along the way. My bicycle journey will be around 1900 kilometers.
Why am I cycling through India?
My route from Delhi to Kolkata.
I have been cycling around the world for many years and visited more than 75 countries, but I have not been to India yet. So this is my time to experience India and everything it has to offer.
I prefer to travel slowly through a country by bicycle as this is a great way to see all the small places between the famous tourist spots that all the foreign visitors go to. Nothing wrong with Taj Mahal. I plan to visit Taj Mahal too. But there is more to India than Taj Mahal and I hope to see a lot of every day India and meet many ordinary Indians along the road. This is the way to really get to know a country.
I plan to cycle between 80 and 100 kilometre per day. Some days will be more and some days will be less. It also depends on where I can find hotel accommodation along the way.
But I am really looking forward to my bicycle trip from Delhi to Kolkata and I also look forward to exploring both Delhi and Kolkata.
Cheers and see you soon India 🙂
