Watch this space for Lee, adventure traveller, in front of the Taj Mahal!! Yes, we are off to India on a three-week bike tour…

We know it’s a Kiwi tour operator so probably all the fellow riders will be Kiwis. We are ready for the immediate assault on our senses when we arrive in New Delhi. We’ve packed clothing for 45 degrees celsius down to -1 degree celsius. We know we are riding on Royal Enfield Classic 500’s and just for a nice change we will have a support vehicle with a mechanic and a doctor on board. We know the altitude will be over 5000 metres in several places as we ride the Tibetan Plateau. We know things don’t always go according to plan in the Himalayas so we have been asked to bring our patience and our humour…
