One Crazy Ride

with 14 comments

Even the most intrepid of travelers like the affirmation that they are headed in the right direction or that there is a way ahead. Ever heard of trying to find a way that does not exist or motoring through paths that might have ceased to exist. That is exactly what a group of five riders did some years back. They called the journey – One Crazy Ride and rightfully so because the A to Z of it was madness.

    Riding through Arunanchal Pradesh, a region marked by insurgency and border conflicts
    Looking for the elusive route to traverse the breadth of the state without entering Assam

But what is life without adventure and madness. In the end, the mission was accomplished.

This was the only way to cross the water body

This Sunday, I happened to attend the screening of ‘One Crazy Ride’ in Bangalore.

Hats off to Gaurav Jani for having pulled this off and also for the much acclaimed Riding Solo To The Top Of The World

I bought the two DVDs after the screening and, these are highly recommended. Do give them a dekko.

Some teasers available here.

  4. What a bridge very difficult to believe that it would hold a bike.

    • Yes! The teaser ended right at the point where the bike is on the verge of getting on to the bridge.

      When I saw it later in the documentary. I was blown away 🙂
