Lucknow to Delhi via Kanpur riding along NH 2 - 570 kms

Cruising across cities had become a habit by day 5. As it was very hot out there we rescheduled our plan and decided to start off at midnight. We covered a distance of about 570 kms from Lucknow to New Delhi via Kanpur.

For a rider like us, nothing could be better than an empty wide road. The 4 lane NH 2 had both the things.



If a biker gets an empty road he cannot keep himself away from trying stuff. It seemed as if were floating freely in air.



In Delhi, “News Live”, a channel headquartered in Assam welcomed us by interviewing us about our journey so far. This was aired during prime time and repeated after every 1 hour.



Routine health check for our bikes. And while this was happening, we got time to rejuvenate and reenergize. Everyone had an agenda of their own, some caught up with friends and family, some just slept all through the day.
