15 days on a bike trip in the mountains changes your outlook on life. Some simple lessons I learned:

  • The point is to travel – not to arrive somewhere – and not to blow money (motto of our trip, modified from a quote by Garry Singh, a retired army officer we met in Chandigarh)
  • Maintain pace proportional to capacity
  • Stop often to look around, or you may miss the best parts of the journey
  • When faced with a bad patch, move on with a clear intention of getting through
  • Obstacles can come from any direction e.g. falling rocks!
  • Everyone can have a bad day – and may need support to get through
