Kutch tour: Day 2 (rajkot – anjar)

Filed under: Anjar, Bike Ride, kutch — Angelo @ 5:41 pm

After a long day riding, we had a good sleep and woke up 9am. The plan for today was to visit Gaurav’s native place at Anjar. The distance was just 230 km’s so there was no hurry. Gaurav had to visit the exhibition one last time before we could leave Rajkot. We started riding on SH24 at 12:30. The road later connects to NH8, which again was a dead straight road with no traffic.

After riding at 120kmph the previous day, we were getting low fuel efficiency so we decided to limit the speeds to 90 today since it made no sense ripping the bikes on the straight stretches just for a few minutes gain. After riding for 100 km’s on this road we stopped for lunch at hotel satkar.

We ordered a lot of cold drinks and a light Punjabi meal and sat there for an hour since we had a lot of spare time today. It was already 3 when we continued riding. From here on the roads were a little curvy with barren land on either sides covered with the typical white sand of kutch and some windmill farms.

It looked like a road straight out of the movies. This road passes through the little rann of kutch and it gave us a preview of whats to come on the rest of the trip. We stopped at the windmill farm and at the little rann for a couple of pics.

We reached the town of Anjar and found another AC room to stay, the AC rooms and good hotels were becoming the norm on this trip since it was a vacation trip. We got a good deal at hotel Manav and checked in there.

After freshening up, we headed to Gaurav’s relatives place. They offered us some tasty snacks and kept asking if we needed any more, but we had to resist since we needed to keep some room for dinner as well. Once Guarav was done catching up with his relatives, we bid them goodbye and left for the hotel. Once again we had a good vegetarian dinner, went back to the room and called it a night.
