The ride begins on the auspicious day of Ganesh Chaturthi - birthday of Ganesha, the remover of obstacles. And immediately there is an obstacle to remove! All the armour in my riding gear is broken!
Oh no! I had to go around with a begging bowl for any spare armour anyone might happen to have.
Beautiful Binsar - What a lovely place
The Kasar devi temple at Binsar
I leave the group and start my solo ride! Binsar to Mukteshwar
A small walk around the Mukteshwar temple
The romantic ruins of the Victoria cottage
Everyone seems to have a quest for immortality - achieved in part by writing their names on any wall or stone they can find!
