Ride to the NorthCape

TimeCapsule – 2015 – To the very far ends and the corners of this planet.. I thought it might be one of the lovely lone experiences but it was tarnished by the hundreds of tourists that land on this spot loaded in buses like the cattle going to the free slaughter pilgrimage (Apologies for the pun too, if it sounds too harsh but that was my personal thoughts).

On one hand, It was quite an amazing ride when I come to think of it but not an experience I would like to share about the actual NordKapp visitor center. Hundreds of tourists filled inside the shop and cafetaria like this is all they came here for. I would have preffered to stick to the very wild north but the weather was pretty cold for summer equinox and forced me to battle through the rainy downpours.

Thanks to all those who helped and also to those, who didn’t. It all makes a worthy experience in the end.

A slow and nice one to enjoy the curves of Norwegian North(without touching the brakes)

Will I ride there again, quite definitely yes but not to the very NorthCape but the likes of bordering northern islands. I loved the isolation of 98 instead. No videos but you would enjoy the Wilderness and the freezing rain\wind and awesomeness of no one for miles.

Forget your fears

Winter is here and so are the winter blues. I get on and ride through the fear that the fearful may never do it. Do it what your heart believes in – Be it love, be it passion, be who you are and face your fears.

Morning of 18.11.13, England. Ready to ride – 7c, Fog and wet roads. 100miles to go.

Another milestone, 49000miles on the blue bird.

Finally !!

I have been told that I can get the break – much needed and take it in a way I want.

So now in this weather when mercury is supposed to take a dip, I have two options both between 500-800miles round trip. Obviously I do not want to ride for more than 4-5hours in these cold conditions and I would make this trip hostel style. Once I can get sometime to do more calculations but firstly, I have to make a decision.

Decision that is :

Feeling of caring

The feeling of sharing is the feeling of caring. What better way to express this than to express this by providing the heat to someone who may thank you in no better way than providing with their warm words even in the coldest of the cold conditions.

Just riding down the Tanglang La (17,582 ft) in heavy snowfall, there was instant traces of life. As we came across few shepherds who were looking after their cattles and they got the chance to take some heat from the hot engine exhaust pipes which were not hot enough even after being on the roads for past 4hours.
