Day 1 - Delhi To Kanatal It was the month of July and Monsoon was at its best. I don't know what made us think that we could ride up to Gangotri from Delhi and come back in 2 days but somehow we thought that we could and with that in our minds we started our ride from Delhi on a saturday morning at 6 am. This was going to be my first motorcycle trip after a gap of several years and joining me for the ride was a close friend Lavish Sagar Trikha. Within an hour of riding on NH24 we have crossed Ghaziabad and took NH58 from here, riding towards Muradnagar. UP roads can be counted in one of the worst roads in the country and NH 58 is no exception. So instead of riding on the highway, right after Muradnagar, we took a turn on a small road right next to the Upper Ganga Canal. This road was laid mainly for the pilgrims going to Haridwar every year on foot but is wide enough for a car. Traffic on this road is almost next to none so it was good for us as we had very little time in hand. It us a 160 kms straight stretch to Haridwar from Muradnagar with upper Ganga Canal flowing right next to the road.
