  • Roshini Sharma solo ride Kanyakumari to Leh

    Got this article from a friend, will be inspiring for all us

    One woman, one bike, nerves of steel, and a 5453 kilometre journey from Kanyakumari to Leh


    What do you do when have a cause, a bike and nerves of steel? You drive 5453 kilometres from Kanyakumari to Leh by yourself, and pack some pepper spray for good measure. Roshini Sharma was born in Narora, Uttar Pradesh, a small town by all means.



    Sharma studied engineering in college, yet her tryst with travelling never subsided. Her expedition meant visiting enthralling and diverse cities like Bangalore, Hyderabad, Jhansi, Manali, Leh, Srinagar, Jammu, Panipat and Delhi, just to name a few. Her journey took her through 11 different states over 14 days. The need for this journey was both emotional and social. As a person, Sharma has always been a bike and travelling enthusiast, and as a woman, she felt the need to set a better example for those trapped by social limitations and stereotypes. But, her dream was met with concern and scepticism from both friends and family.



    Before her cross-country trip, Sharma had done more than a few solo bike trips like Bangalore-Pune-Bangalore and Bangalore-Chennai-Bangalore. But even for a seasoned biker, an expedition across the length of the country through notorious regions and dangerous highways like the Leh-Manali Highway presented new challenges and lots of disbelief.

    It took Sharma nearly 8 months to plan her journey.

    Traversing through tricky terrain from mud, muck, snow, water, gravel, sand and stone, the journey became a test of her strength, adaptability and endurance.


    Sharma has the soul of a biker. When asked if she was going to stay put for a while, she laughs and says,

    Topic Approved.

    Good news indeed. Shows what a woman can do with courage and willpower. Although, it would have been better having a teammate, specially when traveling through UP & MP?
    But anyways, past is written in stone. It happened, and its a good news for all Indian bikernis and bikers.

        One word - RESPECT.
        Amazing feat. Not because of her gender status. Because of the determination,nerve and the ability to overcome numerous challanges.
        A bike on the road is worth two in the shed.

              BTW for a bikerni, she looks feminine and beautiful too

                  Darn!!!! Missed it . If i knew this before the ride started, I would've personally met and congratulate her from the starting point itself . BTW if possible please somebody tag/invite her to the thread. Would be nice to get her reactions straight and also congratulate for this great feat on behalf of the xbhp community
