Good Morning Calcutta! / A Royal Enfield Motorbike Tour
Old City to Botanical Gardens via Howrah Bridge
The city from a Royal-Enfield-rider’s perspective. Simply because maneuvering through the old town is easier and faster this way, and we love these beasts that have been in production in our country every since WWII. Join us on a discovery of the city through the lens of the riders of the cult bike, Royal Enfield. Do the must see sites of the city with intermittent breaks at various bikers’ stops.
We pick you up at 8am and take you to the nearest biker’s tea stop. After some tea and snacks possibly, we head out to see the various sites of the old city and its Southern extensions.
Via the old Howrah Bridge we may head out to the Botanical Gardens to check out one of the world’s largest Banyan tree. Return back via the new hanging bridge and head straight to lunch at an interesting Calcutta joint. Drop back to the hotel by 12 noon approximately.
Not for the faint-hearted. Although we ride at slow cruise speeds, the Calcutta traffic may get challenging.
