Route – Paro to Phuentsholing – 140 km.
Today was our last day of ride and we were leaving from Paro for Phuetsholing. The distance looks small but in terms of hours it takes much longer.
Keeping in mind the terrain and weather, it was decided to leave Paro by 9 am. All were ready after a good breakfast to leave. Ride Captain Ajit addressed all and briefed about today’s route and ride plan. The grouping and rider sequence was read out and prayers were recited, it was a Buddhist prayer done by our support rider, Bhim. Soon all were on the highway
Slowly we left Paro and were cruising steadily towards Phuentsholing. The first 50 km was a smooth curvy ride, encountering a few slushy stretches of roads, all managed to cross them. We stopped for a tea break close to 12 pm, and moved ahead, but the next 70 km was a total horror, totally foggy and visibility dropping to zero at various places, added to it, it had started drizzling, sunlight was very less. With all the bikes flashers On, and slow speed managed to reach Phuentsholing around 3 pm. The tour guide took us directly to the Immigration office for closing the permit work and other paper formalities.
After which we were taken to our hotel for tonight’s stay in Phuetsholing, all shifted to respective rooms for freshening up and went out for late lunch and final round of shopping. All were back to the hotel by 7.30 pm for an early dinner, as we had to leave for Bagdogra airport next day early morning to catch our flight to Bangalore and Chennai in the afternoon on 20th June.
Finally the Happiness ride to Bhutan has come to an end successfully without any incident with a group of 24 riders. Thanks to all the riders for their cooperation and rallying around each other to complete the ride. Thanks to Ride Captain Ajit and Tour Captain Prashanth Babu for coordinating everything. Missed our President Rajesh, it was his dream plan for a ride outside India for the first time in IFMR INDIA Chapter. Thanks to him for all the planning. Maybe something better is planned for him. See you all soon. With this ride we conclude the Rotary Year of IFMR India 2023-24. Thank you thank you thank you.
