10th of March, 2014 afternoon hours I and Ramkrishna was riding Royal Enfield Thunderbird Twinspark motorbike driving towards Barsana to attend Lathmar Holi at Nandgaon, Uttar Pradesh. On the way at Chhata Barsana more, National Highway 2 I saw four sadhus paddling bicycle having display board with details about their yatra. I request them to stop to know more about the yatra by bicycle.
Three are from Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh and one from Chattarpur, Madhya Pradesh.
One of them started his journey on 03rd of March, 2014 from Chattarpur and others on 10th of March from Vrindavan and will reach Vaishno Devi, Katra, Jammu & Kashmir approx. in 12 – 14 days.
800 km approx. one way journey from Vrindavan to Katra I guess.
Mahendra Kumar is from Chattarpur, Madhya Pradesh. Moni Baba, Pagla Baba and Kishan Das is from Vrindavan, Uttar Pradesh.
I was amazed to know it is their ninth tour by bicycle. Last eight tour they with cycles paddled till Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu. Amazing.
In short I find these travelers a motivation to travel more.
What say? Best Wishes & Keep traveling..
