Dhubri to Bhagalpur - 560 kms

The second day of the ride dawned with a new set of challenges. Mother Nature had made us realize how helpless one can feel. As we entered Bihar, the soaring temperatures made it impossible for us to move. However, we did not waste any time. We tried out some photography.

As we entered the state of Bihar, the mercury touched the mark of 47 Celsius. Despite all our biking gears, it wasn’t possible to drive any further. Haplessly, we took a 3 hour unplanned break.



‘To each his own’, as the saying goes, everyone took up different route to combat the heat. Cold drinks, water splashes and going bare were some of the options that the riders opted to!



We were sure to expect some curious onlookers right from the beginning. To some our bikes appealed while to others our backpacks appealed.



Awesome food is what it takes to make a difficult day end with some smiles. As we moved we saw, weather, people, vegetation and even the food changing. The rice recipes of Assam were gone and daal tadka and rotis welcomed us.
