29 January – 1 February Kila Raipur festival 2015 we planned to attend for the first time. We started our Royal Enfield Thunderbird Twinspark motorcycle from Mohali (Ajitgarh) at 8:15 am. Approx. 27 km driving at 9:00 am we stop for breakfast at Mittran Da Dhaba – left hand side of NH 95. After having Aloo Pyaz Paratha with white butter as breakfast and a cup of tea we re-started our journey at 9:45 am.
41 km further driving on National Highway 95 we reached Kohara. Till this point we are on NH 95 but now we have to turn left for Sahnewal. 10:50 am is the current time.
At Sahnewal – bridge construction work was going on. We have to turn right to drive few extra km via Sahnewal airport to reach on the other side. Directions was narrated by a shopkeeper. During the drive we crossed NH 1 bridge if I am correct to reach Dhillon.
Another 27 km driving and we reached Dhillon. Here one has to cross State Highway 11 to drive towards Kila Raipur.
5 km drive we reached Kila Raipur stadium which is on left hand side approx. 100 meter inside from the road. Time was 12 Noon.
Total distance between Mohali (Ajitgarh) and Kila Raipur is approx. 100 km
Road condition between Mohali till Kila Raipur is fantastic. Total hours journey from Mohali (Ajitgarh) to Kila Raipur by motorbike including breakast time – almost 4 hours but next day we reached within 2 hours 30 minutes because of continous driving till Kohara.
The weather was too cold almost freezing and driving RE motorcycle on a highway was a tough challenge. Drive slow – The mantra.
