OMG… This looks so cool. Its my dream to do a bike tour. But for that, first i have to know how to ride a bike. Hope my this wish come true one day.

Kamal krtay hou janab. Do let me know next time. Its my wish to do a bike tour. How is the road condition these days, I have heard that due to monsoon its gone bad.

@hashim The road condition back then, before monsoon, was good but now I can’t say a word because I have been listening in the news about the landsliding. I would suggest that better try next time before monsoon.

Man you just sparked-up my little childhood wish of doing the bike trip to north. I shall do it soon before my vacation ends with my friends.
