South Asia Bike-Ride 29th-October-2016

Garry McGivern’s South Asia bike-ride, India, Saturday, 29th-October-2016. Kanpur to Lucknow. 53 miles. A very short day today, although sometimes I find them harder. I think it’s that thing of knowing where I’m going to stop. It seems to make the day drag. That’s why I’m always better off not knowing where I’ll end up! Of course, I usually have a rough idea of where I’ll end up, but it’s never a certainty!

The ride into Lucknow this afternoon was the usual chaotic nightmare made even worse because they’re building an elevated metro line which ran my whole route into the city.

I might stop here for two nights as the wifi last night wasn’t as good as I thought it would be, and I never achieved everything I wanted. So yep, you’ve guessed it. Having a strong internet signal means more boring videos are on their way! I also need to look at a time scale for flying home, as my sabbatical in Dhule has thrown me completely out! Plus, it’s Diwali tomorrow, so it might be good to stay put and take part in the festivities. Or maybe just watch!
