A gang of five women with different backgrounds and different jobs together went on a bike riding trip to Himachal’s Spiti Valley. Nothing but the passion for bikes and wanderlust was common between these women. Ramya, Shruthi R, Jinsy, Shruthi Sreekumar and Shilka finally fulfilled their dream of going to the Himalayan desert on bike off-roading. First Malayali women bikers to conquer Spiti Valley.
Love For Bikes And Travelling Was The Connecting Point
Remya R. Pillai is an Assistant Manager, Jincy is a Dental Hygienist, Shilka is a Freelance Teacher and Research Student, R Shruthi is a MiG E-Commerce Executive and Shruthi Sreekumar is the Senior Audit Assistant. These women only had a shared passion and that is what connected them to each other and they set out on a journey called ‘Bike Odyessy, 2022’ to Spiti valley. Shilka was the pillion rider and they set out with 3 bikes.
Preparations And Precautions
All five of them had planned the trip well in advance and that is why six months before the trip they went on a strict diet and also joined the gym. The challenge was to cover 50-60Km off-roading out of the 2000km stretch. Off-roading in the Himalayas through unfamiliar terrain is a tough job. All five of the riders had their safety clothing and gear. They also had an extra clutch and accelerator cable in order to prevent breakage.
