A long week at work. A scooty and two bikes at our disposal. A road trip was inescapable. Six people on One Aprilla, One Ntorq and One Duke. Our journey started from Noida on a Friday evening with no itinerary or plan of action. How Romantic! Right?
Somehow, we managed to pull off this stunt without any goof-up or I must say, except for one which is very embarrassing, Kyuki Gaalib… Meri kashti hi dubi wahan jahan paani kam thaa. For which you’ll have to stay with me till the end.
Please note, this was the first road trip on a two-wheeler for most of us. Till Meerut, everything was filmy, nice with ZNMD vibes . It was after covering first 60-70 km that our back started dying a slow death. However, by the time we reached Dehradun, our body got the hang of it (or you can say that it was dead already).
Day 1: Delhi - Dehradun - Mussoorie (280 km + 20 km)
We reached Dehradun around one in the morning and found a humble place to rest.
The next morning when we woke up, it was raining. Doon mornings are amazing anyway but when they are accompanied by rain, the experience is heavenly. Ohhoooo, mere nostalgia can do the magic. However, without getting carried away. We left for Mussoorie around 9 in the morning after having tea and coffee because Breakfast toh Maggie Point par banta hai na.
Tipsy Note: While you are travelling by road to Mussoorie you’ll find various Maggi Points with an amazing view of Doon Valley. If not for food, take a stop for the view. The valley looks beautiful from some specific spots.
After riding for an hour or so we stopped by a random Maggi Point, had our Breakfast, relaxed, clicked a few pictures, got on our respective wagons and rode off.
Around 12 pm we reached Mussoorie and went straight to Diamond Hotel. It’s a small lodge with basic facilities but amazing food and a crazy view. After stretching our legs for a while we left for Happy Valley.
