Anirban da, Hats off to you! I am in double minds whether to do the Leh -circuit in car or not. And you have conquered it on a bicycle with a "truck-load" of luggage! Feeling ashamed now about myself! Such expeditions truly lift the human spirit to the whole next higher level. Awesome! Keep it coming!

dude - how did you deal with acclimatization and stuff - are you used to such altitudes? Please let me know...
Your thread is inspirational in a way that it not just motivates people relaxing on their lazy boy recliners to clap but it ignites a fire which makes us challenge ourselves and push us to test such limits....."this thread is truly the purest form of freedom"

@adc - You continue to amaze with your journeys. If i thought your Leh and Arunachal TLs were awesome this one beats them simply for the grit and determination.

During my Leh trip while looking at the cyclists doing the Khardungla pass run would always wonder how much planning must have gone into this. And now i can read all about it from you.

Truly inspirational. Salute to you!!!

Fantastic writeup! Rated five stars.

It's people like you who make travelogues so much more exciting!
It's almost like sitting on the front row seats of an IMAX theatre and watching one of those "based on a true story" pictures that keeps you pondering on how much minuscule of a life we live. Kudos and hats off to you for achieving such a great feat.

:O I had a tough time doing a round trip from hyd-delhi-srinagar-leh-manali-delhi on a bike but was fun. Just when I thought it cant get any tougher, I came through this thread. Just one word, Super duper bumper shocking adrenaline filled trip I must say. Kudos to you sir!

You just put another thought in my mind. I was thinking of going to leh again this year. But now, change of plans. I'll do it on a bicycle. I was planning from a couple of weeks to go pick a trek too. Now I have a stronger reason to buy one.

Dude,

Hats off, whether its the 4 wheels or the 2 wheels you truly are an inspiration. How and how long have you been physically preparing for this?
I was into cycling too sometime back and after doing Leh in 2004 on the Bull was dreaming to do it on my cycle. Its still in the pipeline with no idea as when it would become a reality.

We guys are planning to do a delhi -leh- delhi by road in coming July and we are super excited. We are counting it as our life time achievement(till date).
After reading your travelogue it feels like its delhi-agra or Mumbai-pune trip

Hats off to the spirit! Truly inspiring!

adc da! Speechless over this achievement. The place where people fear by going a car, you went there on a humble bicycle.

Desperately waiting for more, specially the Stok Kangri summit .

Hats Off to your Stamina and the courage to do this trip all alone. Always wanted to do the Leh Ladakh Trip alone but never imagined someone could venture on a BiCycle all alone. And a well written travelogue too with details of each of the parts to buy and source for it.

Super Amazing!!! I cycle 10 kms every day and find it a bit tiring at 34 and you go out there at 40 and brake all barriers. I am dumbfounded and full of respect, excellent fitness and determination. BTW I sent this link to all my friends who keep complaining about aches, pains and growing old.
Beautiful ride, it’s on my wish list now.
