Pushkar was always in my mind. After so many plans of riding to pushkar from delhi being cancelled since 2015, Finally this plan came to reality in November 2017. Although delayed this final plan was made to visit pushkar during the famous pushkar fair of 2017. The festival dates as per rajasthan tourism was from 28 Oct to 4 November 2017. Due to my office commitments i just got the 04 November to witness this fair. 4 November being Saturday and the last day of fair i decided to start early morning so that at least i could witness half day of the famous pushkar fair. A week before, as usual i made my planning fixed, booked my hotel and prepared my flag for this trip. The flag after printing looked like below:
After attending office on 03 November, In the evening i started packing my stuff for the next day ride. I planned to leave delhi by 0500 am As the google map showed a distance of approx. 450 kms and time of 8 hours journey. I decided to leave 0500 am sharp so that i can reach by 1300 hours and can witness the fair from noon to night.
As always my dad helped in packing and i organised my riding gears. I was excited for the ride as i had bought my riding pants and sj4000 cam, so this time i would be riding with my riding pants and sj4000 cam (mounted on my helmet) the feeling to get in riding gears and use of sj4000 cam was making me excited. So by 2130 hours i had done my dinner and went to sleep by 2300 hours. Before going to bed i just clicked this pic of my packed saddle bag and my riding gears.
I was dreaming of making videos through my sj cam while riding when suddenly i heard sound of my alarm. I quickly stepped out of bed and saw the time it was 0405 hours. I quickly got freshen up took shower and got ready by 0435 hours. As I carried my luggage to tie on my bike i saw that my mom was awake and preparing tea for me. I am happy to have such lovely parents who supports my travelling.
I finished my tea and got ready to start my bull to roll. When i kick started i saw my watch and it was reading 0505 hours. So i was on time as per my plan. I stopped at temple near my house to receive blessings of GOD for my yet another bike trip. I was cruising at a speed of 60 kmph. Quickly entered the jaipur highway and was rolling smoothly at 70 kmph. Since i was used to this route i planned to cover maximum before i stop for break fast. I was enjoying the sunrise as i crossed dharuhera . I was rolling at a speed of 80 kmph and crossed neemrana and then kotputli. After crossing kotputli my stomach started raising alarms to stop for brekfast so just near shahpura about 40 kms before jaipur by pass i stopped for breakfast at Hotel Highway King. This was the same stop i took during my delhi udaipur ride. I quickly ordered pyaz parantha and it looked like this:
After filling my tummy i again kick started as i had to reach pushkar by 1300 hours. I started my journey again and enjoyed the beautiful roads of jaipur by pass. I crossed jaipur rolling at speed of 80 kmph getting thumbs up from fellow tourist cars and bikes . Since the heat was increasing i needed a water break so i stopped at a road side stall near a place called dudu. I stopped at 1115 hours and took one water bottle while gulping my water i inquired from the stall owner and he said you are just 80-85 kms far from pushkar. I was happy that i was following timings as per my plans and ask the owner to take few pics of mine that looked like below:
